Miapolis is a proposed skyscraper planned for construction on Watson Island in Miami, Florida. If approved, constructed, and completed the building would stand at 3,200 ft (980 m), with 160 floors, surpassing the Burj Khalifa in Dubai as the world's tallest skyscraper.[1]


The proposed $22 billion dollar self-sufficient development would include an amusement park, a trade center, an observatory, rotating sky-lounge, a shopping mall, restaurants, condominiums, office space, a hotel and a marina, to be built on a 28-acre (11 ha) site.[2] The proposal plans call for 1,000 housing units and up to 46,000 construction jobs over the construction period and to bring 35,000 permanent jobs to Miami.[3] Also included is a proposal to pay-off Jungle Island's debts of $39 million, a new 99-year, master land lease for $4 million per annum, a 300 space covered parking garage for Children's Museum, a Children's Playground on park next to Children's Museum, donating $30 million for full college scholarships, $3.6 million for 4 senior citizen centers, and $6.4 million for PAC and a new Bicentennial Park Miami. Along with a Pan-American Plaza 30 ft above the MacArthur Causeway and a new light rail station at the Pan-American Plaza.[4]

Guillermo Socarras, who proposed the Miapolis development, was in talks with the Federal Aviation Administration to approve the project's height and hopefully create a no-fly zone over South Beach and the Port of Miami.[A][1][5]

However, Ronnie Krongold, co-owner of Jungle Island, says that city officials don't even know about the project.[1][6]
