The photo in the top left is what Downtown Miami looked like in 1983. The Southeast Financial Center was under construction and on its way to becoming the tallest building in Miami at 765 feet. It was eventually surpassed by the Four Seasons Miami in 2003 and now the tallest building in Miami - Panorama Tower. Bayside Marketplace has not yet been built and the marina was where Sonny Crockett lived on his boat in Miami Vice. In 2017, the skyline has grown to include 50 Biscayne, Vizcayne, One Miami and even the iconic Miami Tower.
General Growth Properties has hired Zyscovich Architects to redesign the aging Bayside Marketplace in Downtown Miami.
The renovation will include the retail and waterfront areas, along with adding two new levels of parking. SkyRise Miami will also be built next to the Bayside Marina.
Bayside Marketplace recently received a $250 million mortgage that will be used towards the renovations and expansion.
According to Miami Today, Bayside Marketplace will undergo the first phase of renovations in early 2015 that will take eight months.
In August, voters approved to extend the lease for 99 years and require that Bayside Marketplace spend up to $35 million on renovations on the aging outdoor mall. Included in the agreement was the go ahead to allow SkyRise Miami to be built on land next to the Marina.
