Personally, I'm not a complete fan. Those are going to be some constantly moving bright lights. I don't think it would just be stationary ads on it. More like constant commercials.

If you're living in a nearby tower, do you really want a massive commercial screen outside your door?

If he were to develop a Times Square type area (a major ad screen at the end of the street, and buildings on either side of a street) then I would be more on board.

With 10 acres, he has an opportunity to really make a big impact on Midtown, but I don't think this is the way to do it. It has no pedestrian interaction with it, it has no reason for people to come over there. The concept of an urban area is pedestrian activity and a core of services like dining, shopping, offices, etc. this provides none of that.

if this costs money......I DONT SUPPORT IT. Enough with stupid little projects like this. I'm glad the mayor has not supported it.

These things are not cheap and price to replace incase of a hurricane have to be factored into the developers plan.
doggie makes a very valid point.

In a hurricane, well constructed High-rises are safer than single-family homes, IMO. The Arsht Center itself would probably sustain more damage than the towers.
