A Vertical Amusement Park Has Become a Tall Project Challenge
The SkyRise vertical amusement park is fraught with design and construction challenges. But before the project team could turn to those, the plans first had to clear the courtroom. Initially approved by voters in Miami, Florida, USA in 2014, SkyRise was stalled by lawsuits attempting to block the city from allocating US$9 million in property taxes for the project, based on environmental grounds. The Florida Supreme Court has sided with the developers, and construction is finally slated to begin later this year.
