Known as the “Cuban Ellis Island”, the tower is where many emigrated through to become American citizens, and it’s presence will always remind us of our early past, a silent witness of the swift changes in the look and feel of the magic city.
THE BOOM MUST GO ON!
For more than twenty years I have been photographing Miami from the air and from the ground. Throughout its relatively short history, this city has been a playground for the rich and famous, and infamous. Following the money, a myriad of developers came, seeking to transform our city from the small city by the bay it once was in the late 80’s-
into the cosmopolitan city of the future we have today.
Now, once again, thanks to a strong South American financial influence,
construction is on the rise and another building boom is beginning.
This new image was captured while I was directing the creation of HD video footage as part of a campaign for the development of properties at 600 and 700 Biscayne Blvd. The new buildings will dwarf the historic Miami Freedom Tower, directly to the south of the development property.
