Kudos to the Miami Herald for its Oct. 27 editorial, SkyRise scuffle, and also to columnist Helen A. Ferré for her Oct. 26 column, An eyesore courtesy of Miami-Dade taxpayers? which dealt with developer Jeff Berkowitz’s proposed SkyRise project on Biscayne Bay.
They both chimed in on the area's latest absurdity, which was given the go-ahead by the usual couple of voters in the recent primary.
If Berkowitz’s tower reaches completion, tourists and archeologists will feast here on Miami's hurricane-tempting answer to the Colossus of Rhodes. It would join the PortMiami Tunnel boondoggle as the Knossos Labyrinth and Watson Island as Troy after the war.
