Broadcasting commercials 24/7 from a 600-foot tower in downtown Miami, it will make tens of millions of dollars a year for Simkins.
It will make Miami look stupid for the rest of the century.
It will make people like me want to puke.
It's that bad.
We've heard awful proposals before... the giant Columbus and the football field-size flag but this one is much worse. The 60-storys tall LED billboard will look like this as you cruise up I-95,
You'll be able to see the damn thing glowing 25 miles away.
Imagine that, then,
do something to stop it.
On June 25th and June 29th, there will be two meetings in which our city commissioners will decide if this travesty gets built or not. Call or e-mail the mayor and everyone sitting on the Miami city commission.

It is hard to believe but the developer is of the opinion that this only Mr. Woods' signature is needed to build his tower. Woods works for one of the city's development agencies.
Tell them, "Please stop Innovation Tower".
We elected them and they should listen.
Hopefully they will have the courage to say "No" to Simkins' proposal. It is one of the worst
ideas ever foisted on the City of Miami.
