Designed to be built on Watson Island, Miapolis would measure about 183 meters higher than the Burj Khalifa . The staggering 160-floor eco-city  would contain a bevy of entertainment and residential spaces within including an amusement park, observatory, restaurants, approximately 2 million sq ft of shops, more than 1000 apartments, 1 million sq ft of office space and a 792 room hotel.
In addition to LEED certification, Miapolis’ eco-factors include the use of 60% wind energy , a modular green roof , greenhouse gas management, water  desalinization, storm and wastewater management, solid waste management, electric trolleys, carbon emissions offsets, and carbon sequestration. The city also hopes that the new development will revitalize downtown Miami and create 46,000 construction and 35,000 permanent jobs for locals.
