FYI Miami: March 20, 2014 | Miami Today

Meanwhile, this project in Miami sounds more like a Las Vegas attraction, complete with a bungee jump platform. It is also in line to receive money through the state. Click title for link.
TOWERING INITIATIVE: Skyrise Miami, a proposed 1,000-foot-tall waterfront glass and steel tower intended to offer an observation deck, nightclub and bungee jump-like platform on City of Miami waterfront land beside Bayside Marketplace downtown, would receive $10 million from the state as part of the House’s $11.49 billion transportation and economic-development budget plan released Tuesday. The proposal for the Berkowitz Development project isn’t matched in the Senate’s $11.7 billion combined budget plan. Also on the House Transportation, Tourism and Economic Development Appropriations Subcommittee list is $150,000 for the Doral Business Council Expo.
Space Needle, anyone?
