Miami to Have World’s Tallest Building?

Miami, FL may have the world’s tallest building, taking the title from Dubai’s Burj Khalifa if current plans for Miapolis are fulfilled.

from Urbanpeek.com:

According to Miami herald, Kobi Karp has submitted designs for Miapolis, a ‘city within a city’ planned for Watson Island in Miami, Florida. If built, the 160 storey building will stand at 980m (3200 ft) high, surpassing Burj Khalifa by 183 meters.

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.
