One River Point will be two 60 story towers with a floating glass skybridge and an 85 foot waterfall that was designed by Rafael Viñoly.

This Was Brickell Key In 1985 - Before & After

The photo on the left is what Brickell Key looked like in 1985 and on the far right you can see the Miami Tower under construction. In 1975 the island was completely empty and barren after developing from dredging of the Miami River. By 1985 one condo had been built on Brickell Key and the Brickell skyline was becoming lined with condos. By 1999, the island had grown even more with more condos, but the Mandarin Oriental was not built yet. The photo on the top right is what Brickell Key and Downtown Miami look like today. Brickell Key is almost fully developed and the Brickell skyline is no longer visible except for the Four Seasons and Icon Brickell. 

This Was Downtown Miami In 1984 - Before & After

The photo on the top left is Miami and the Miami River in 1984. At the bottom of the photo is the James L. Knight convention center which was built in 1982. On the right of the photo is the Centrust Tower (Miami Tower) under construction. Fast forward to 2017 and new condos have been built along the river such as Miami, Ivy and the Wind on the North bank and The Latitude and Neo Vertika on the North side in Brickell. Also built in that time is the metromover, which now extends over the Miami River into Downtown Miami.

The Edge on Brickell, designed by architect Kobi Karp, is seeking approval for a taller building on their site located on the edge of the Miami River, according to The Next Miami.

The 13,797 square foot lot was purchased for $18.3 million in July 2015. The new request would see the tower rise taller to 631 feet and 58 stories from the original 55 stories and 606 feet. 

A vacant sales center has been on the sitting on the site for over two years from the original developer.
