The World’s Tallest Digital Israeli Flag and the enormous electronic word, “solidarity,” spelled in English and Hebrew, are lighting up the 60-story Paramount Miami Worldcenter skyscraper in downtown Miami.
South Florida is ranked the third largest metro area in America with the most Jewish people – with a population of more than 550,000.
Tower Lighting Description
Across Paramount’s 700-foot-high by 300-foot-wide rooftop crown are the wafting images of the Israeli flag’s blue horizontal stripes and Star of David.
Through the superstructure’s 60-story center column is a field of deep blue and the white word, “Solidarity” in both English and Hebrew.
CEO’s Signal of Solidarity: Interview Availability
“The Paramount Miami Worldcenter tower is sending a signal of solidarity from South Florida to the people of Israel,” says Daniel Kodsi (Cod-See) CEO of the Royal Palm Companies real estate firm. He is the developer of the Paramount Tower.
“There is sorrow and outrage in our community, which is the third most Jewish-populated metropolitan area in America,” says Kodsi, who has family members in Israel; some of whom are being “called up” for uniformed duty.
He continues, “We pray for the families of the kidnapped hostages. We grieve for the victims of this massacre. And, we demand justice.”
