Miami developer Jeff Berkowitz is putting together a proposal to build a sky-scraping observation tower in downtown Miami. The SkyRise Miami tower would stand 1,000 feet tall at the Bayside Marketplace.

The Miami Herald's Andres Viglucci reports the Arquitectonica-designed structure would be built to withstand hurricane-force winds. Curbed Miami's Sean McCaughan notes the tower's industrial design would align with surrounding structures such as the port of Miami, and bear a built-in restaurant, nightclub and movie theater.
