This is amazing but architecturally blah. Im sure its been stated a million times before on this thread but wow, most of those buildings are like puke in my mouth disgusting. Its still an amazing transformation but what can you expect from beachfront condos. I dont really know of a single beach front condo anywhere that is architectually amazing. They all pretty much look the same no matter where they are built. Great thread though anyways.

The city of Miami is not on a beach. The city of Miami Beach is on a beach. Miami is on a bay just like San Francisco. But thanks for the compliment anyway.

I don't know, but Jade Ocean sure is different than anything else I've seen on a beach.

Miami, Miami Beach, and Sunny Isles Beach

You quoted me here, but I think you are referring to photolitherland's statement about the lack of interesting architecture. By correcting him that Miami Beach is on a beach and that Miami is on a bay, I was pointing out his lack of knowledge in general when he made the statements that he made. When he made them, Jade Ocean was one of the first projects to come to my mind.

Let me point out again at this point for those who do not live in South Florida that South Florida has three distinct and noteworthy skylines in three different cities down here. They are Miami, Miami Beach, and Sunny Isles Beach where Jade Ocean is. Sunny Isles Beach has the second largest skyline in Florida, which is phenomenal considering what is happening in Downtown Miami. I wish we could count all those buildings as part of Miami's tally because then we would have one incredible list of skyscrapers.

I'm not sure what the population of Miami is now, but it seems to be getting larger on almost a daily basis. Unfortunately, the mass transit system is not keeping pace with the city's rapid growth. Metrorail has seen little expansion since it opened in 1984, but the powers-that-be are working on this as all these new condos provide a larger tax base for the county to work with.

Thanks! The weather was better last Saturday, so I was able to get better aerials that make for some of the best work I've done so far. I've taken aerial shots I never imagined myself doing until I started doing it just this summer.

Ok here are my observations on Miami from the perspective of the city that had the West Coast's biggest condo boom and transformation over the last 8 to 10 years, San Diego. On one hand I am jealous that Miami was able to push so many proposals through and term them in to reality.

If San Diego had every proposal that popped up during those heady times of 2002 through early 2006 built our boom may have come somewhat close to rivaling Miami's. (Maybe 70 percent if all the towers did actually go in to construction). As it turns out we maybe only got about 40 percent of Miami's boom.

I'm trying to imagine the city council and planning deparment taking in all of the proposals and just rubber stamping the hell out of them lol. I know that some towers heights were reduced but mainly due to FAA restrictions but still did The city of Miami have literally thousands of people working on all of these things. Just the logistics of getting some many projects pushed through in 4 years is staggering.

I am also baffled that the developers thought that they could just keep throwing up towers and selling them especially in a downtown that isn't really known from being urban or having any real attractions. About the buildings themselves. The first thing I have to say is they are so BULKY! Wow, I know that San Diego has wide and bulky hotel towers but our condos are much more slender looking.

Miami did do some more sleek and slender designs but many buildings are just so wide and have a staggering number of units. Most San Diego condo towers have 200 to 350 units where many of Miami's have 500 to 600 units. They are just huge in comparison. Almost like Vegas hotels with balconies lol.

I would love to have Atlantis Miami come to San Diego and capture it from all angles so I could really compare. From a SD perspective downtown Miami just has a different scale it seems like the developments have such bulky bases and the lot sizes are huge as well. I have never been to downtown Miami but it almost looks like a resort downtown instead of an actual urban downtown in the traditional sense. Maybe I'm completely wrong but that is just what your photos seem to portray.

I look forward to your response to my perspective on Miami Atlantis. Oh I almost forgot, fabulous shots! Your work is inspiring and I'm glad you are pursuing something you are passionate about
