On Friday, Miami Beach officials cut the ceremonial ribbon to unveil one of the city's two new lifeguard towers, a brightly colored structure on the beach at 10th Street, behind Ocean Rescue headquarters.
The round tower, which sports a color scheme of ice plant green, fusion pink and knockout orange, was designed by local architect William Lane. Lane also designed a boxier lime-green one with some yellow and blue, which was erected at 14th Street. The two stands cost a total of $165,000.
These new towers were added to the already-iconic 29-piece collection between South Pointe and 87th Street, which were also spruced up in anticipation of next week’s centennial celebration.
