Hong Kong of the Americas?

Recommended Posts


It would be amazing to see Miami with a skyline as dense as Hong Kong's in 50 years. Unfortunately, if I'm still alive (I'll be 86 in 50 years), I'll be too old to enjoy it. Maybe my grandkids will.

50 years might not be enough. Hong Kong is way ahead of Miami. I will be 76 years old by then and I dont think I can live that long.

Yes, admittedly, Hong Kong is way ahead of Miami. I don't think the purpose of the article is to say we can compete with Hong Kong some day, but that more than anything that will be our track. More than any other city in the US, I think Miami has the potential to become one of these Asian or South American style sprawling skylines.

I'll be 79 but you can at least look forward to living longer then. I can't wait to see what Miami looks like in 5 years. I can barely imagine 10, 15... 50 years.

Will we still enjoy skyscraper when we are old? Will we move into a beach house and enjoy life? Will this forum still around?

Imagine what skycrapers looked like 50 years ago... 1954. Our skyscrapers are so different now; in style, method, facade, form etc. Now try to project that 50 years into the future. I'll undoubtedly still be hitting up skyscraper observation decks when I'm older.

Of coures in Miami, you can move into a skyscraper beach house and enjoy the best of both worlds. :)
