SkyRise Miami will be the signature landmark of the great city of Miami – where the world comes to play. Beautiful weather, world famous beaches and the sparkling waters of Biscayne Bay are the backdrops for SkyRise Miami. SkyRise Miami is located only minutes from one of the busiest international airports in the world (39.5 million annual passengers) and next door to the Port of Miami, also known as the Cruise Capital of the World (nearly 5 million annual passengers), and is easily accessible by car from Interstate 95 (55 million cars annually) and Interstate 395 (43 million cars annually) and from Miami-Dade County’s mass transit system – Metrorail (22.5 million annual passengers) and Metromover (9.5 million annual passengers).
SkyRise Miami is at the heart of Downtown Miami’s Bayfront Entertainment Center. Standing on the water’s edge within Bayside Marketplace, a shopping and dining destination for over 23 million annual visitors, SkyRise Miami is walking distance from a variety of other entertainment venues including: the American Airlines Arena (nearly 3 million annual visitors), home to the world champion Miami Heat; Museum Park, with its two brand new venues, the Science Museum (550,000 projected annual visitors) and the Miami Art Museum (200,000 projected annual visitors), Adrienne Arsht Performing Arts Center (500,000 annual visitors); and Bayfront Park with over 500,000 annual visitors.
Also within walking distance is Miami-Dade College with over 30,000 students and the new All Abroad Florida station (opening 2016) which will provide state-of-the-art train service between Miami and Orlando, Florida (projected 5 million annual passengers). Also scheduled to open within the next few years and within a short walk of SkyRise Miami is the New Miami World Center which includes a 600,000 square feet convention center and a 1,800 room convention hotel.
