The Architecture God Has Spoken: How Dare You Usurp my Domain!

I see a God can't even get out of town on Memorial Day for a little RR without the MVB staff usurping its territory. Your previous post on the proposed 70-story building for downtown Miami was a pretty accurate description of the building but you caved with that silly "Tip o' The Kangol" BS. Now let me tell it like it is: One Bayfront Plaza is not worthy. In fact it suffers from MPD-- Multiple Personality Disorder. It's a building that can't make up its mind what it is. It looks like it was designed by a committee. And just because it's tall doesn't make it worthy. You're too easy, desperate for any building longer than my index finger. How pathetic.

UpDate (8/15/08): Miami Today reports 60 core borings 185-feet in depth show the land is "strong enough to withstand its 1,049-foot height." The next step is to present the 8,300-page construction plans to the City of Miami's planning department for review and approval. The city has warned Hollo that the review process may take two years. Building is expected to take 3-4 years with completion by 2016. Mr. Hollo is quoted as saying he wants "to leave it (the building) as a legacy to the city."

Whoe, Dude, lighten up. You're supposed to come back from a vacation relaxed. If we overstepped our boundaries, to paraphrase Steve Martin, "ex-cuse....US!" It's not like we could get in touch with you since you won't give out your freaking email address!
