Following months of piling and excavation subterranean work, one of downtown Miami’s tallest condo towers is ready to go vertical.
On Friday, Jan. 6, a crew of about 700 construction workers poured the foundation for CMC Group’s 64-story Brickell Flatiron condominium.
General contractor Moss & Associates orchestrated the continuous 24-hour concrete pour at 1001 South Miami Ave. Nearly 150 mixing trucks carrying 1,250 truckloads rotated in shifts to pour approximately 12,500 cubic yards of concrete weighing more than 50 million pounds into a massive excavated hole for the tower’s concrete mat, which sits on top of 700 100-ft.-deep steel pilings.
Hovering 736-feet above street level, the developers say Brickell Flatiron will be one of the tallest residential towers in the U.S. upon its completion in 2019. The 549-unit building was designed by architect Luis Revuelta.
