DRIVE BY VOYEURISM
A 19 STORY TALL DANCING WOMAN IS THE LATEST EXAMPLE OF THE EFFORT TO TURN ALL OF DOWNTOWN MIAMI INTO A GIANT LED BILLBOARD

You can’t help but be distracted by the InterContinental Hotel’s new video wall if you’re driving South on Biscayne Boulevard.


Even with the palm trees and Metro Mover, the 19 story tall Video Wall that the hotel has just installed on it’s building is bound to set both supporters and detractors to talking.


Here’s a small sample of what the Video Wall looks like in motion.

The image of an silhouetted undulating woman dancing on the side of the building would be enough to set tongues wagging, but what will definitely set some people off is the new LED billboard that the hotel has installed above it’s entrance.

While it’s evident that both of these new additions are still going through their installation period, I’m sure that the BIG question will be whether or not this LED billboard, like the one on the AAA Arena ends up being used for commercial advertising.


Of course, there’s also the questions surrounding the permitting and installation of this LED billboard given the continuing controversy between FDOT, Miami-Dade County and the City of Miami over the legality of the LED billboard on the AAA Arena.


A preliminary search of the City’s Building Department website Permit process didn’t provide any evidence that any of these installations had been permitted by the City, but then again, Commissioner “Ethics” Sarnoff just so happens to have his law firm in the office tower that is part of this property, and I’m sure that his eagle eye would spot any irregularity in permitting and demand that things be done right.


That’s the way that Commissioner “Ethics” rolls, and we know that he can always be counted on to look out for the citizens when it comes to folks trying to screw the City..


It’s Miami, Bitches!
