Aerial Photos Of Miami’s 816-Foot Aston Martin Tower, Which Has Now Passed The Halfway Point

The Aston Martin Residences tower in downtown Miami is now more than halfway up, on its way to becoming the second tallest building in Florida.

According to the building’s Instagram feed, contractors recently passed the 33rd floor.

The tower will top off at 66 stories, or 816 feet above ground. At that height, it will be the second tallest building in both the city of Miami and the state of Florida (only Brickell’s 85-story Panorama Tower is taller at 868 feet above ground).

Sales of condo units during the pandemic have been even stronger than last year, according to Forbes.

More units have been sold during 2020 than in 2019. In October alone, 14 units were sold

In total, more than 60 percent of units in the building have now been sold.

I’ll take Miami. At least on our river, we don’t have to raise our drawbridges to block the occasional marauding horde of vandals from looting and smashing our businesses and homes in Brickell and Downtown.

So, you say an occasional marauding horde of vandals loot and smash businesses and homes in surrounding suburbs and downtown Chicago and that’s why they have to raise drawbridges on the river to block them, but that’s not making up or spouting FAKE NEWS?

Did the mayor of Chicago not raise all of the drawbridges as a last resort to block the vandals from repeating the destruction of downtown businesses? I know it may not be what you want to hear, but it is hardly FAKE news. If you don’t believe me, read Chicago Police press releases for the nights of August 10-16 and report back.

Are you the one that said Chicago has a problem because of their “occasional marauding horde of vandals?”

Remember, you said that “occasionally” happens in Chicago.

I did mention occasionally. Using the bridges as barricades was not a solitary single event, but rather an unfortunate “occasional” occurrence this year. I appreciate the attempt to fact check, maybe you should apply for Facebook or YouTube’s accountability department as you’d fit in well.

Here is one last article for your fact checking repertoire:

I never said the bridges weren’t raised, I was just questioning your use of the statement “occasional marauding horde of vandals.” If you would’ve left out the word “occasional,” which makes it appears they have been raising drawbridges for years and years to keep out “marauding hordes of vandals” in Chicago instead of one or two times this year, then what you commented wouldn’t have been thought of as “misleading.”

Venetian Causeway west draw bridge was raised several times during riots in the ’80s & ’90s

On a similar note, I’m so glad Miami was spared from the riots and protests that plagued most major cities. Minus the incident at Bayside of course. I have a feeling locals here would’ve put an end to the tomfoolery that happened in Portland and Seattle real quick.

Even more so now that we can defend ourselves against any would be vandals attacking our homes and livelihoods. Unlike the places you mention, down here they’ll have to think twice.

An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind. Turning your eye away from reality will also blind you and those you care about, as long as you keep your head in the sand. Your privilege in thinking that bad things haven’t happened here in Miami shows.

The Chicago River floods too lmao

Anonymous

Exactly! In NYC major flooding is a also a big issue. Most cities are found along some type of body of water. Water has many benefits, but it can be unruly and all these cities have to deal with the consequences. Flooding is not a new phenomenon and people will endure and adapt as they have done so for thousands of years.

This was supposed to be “Brickell Flatiron”, but the developers and architects decided to repurpose the design for a better location. Both now seem like they’re exactly where they should be in the cityscape.

better than spreading out all the way to exit 87 !
I -95 can’t contain any more sprawl.
Build up vs outward then we can afford things like light rail expansion where we don’t have to spend it on widening I-95 anymore.

Haha, hardly a comparison to the Chicago River lined with beautiful limestone structures and striking architectural feats clad in all gorgeous reflective glass facades. Hopefully this building sets the bar for East part of Brickell.

pretty building.
If anyone is wanting ‘extended views’ they need to buy on the water front facing the ocean.
Otherwise your view may disappear one day.

I personally would rather see taller buildings and less of them.
two 90 story buildings rather than three 60 story buildings. Use that 3rd piece of land for a park that will not be built on.

The more we condense population the more people can walk and not drive up I-95 for miles
Less pollution and more money to intercity train expansion if needed.

“More units have been sold during 2020 than in 2019”

I’m not surprised with the economy the way it is now. If I planned on buying a new condo you bet they better have incentives that’ll make me think twice or maybe three times about buying one in theirs or any new condo building being built.

These morons commenting below are beginning to really show inferiority complexes. Just grow up. Every article has to be followed by these imbeciles comparing what is going on here to some other city. It is like an ugly dude from high school who finally has a girlfriend and keeps giggling while comparing her to every other woman he sees. Bunch of country bumpkins who just got released into civilization and constantly marveling at how well things are where they live. Bright eyed everyday from seeing ANOTHER shiny tower. LoL. Please at least have some self respect and pretend that you are now used to being a real city and not have to constantly yearn for attention by putting down other places. It actually achieves the opposite. You’re all trying too hard. It is what it is.

Isn’t this the construction project that continuously empties into the bay? Thought they were flooded out last week and the bay was disgusting.

No that was a water main break last week that created a sink hole

Anonymous

No, that was due to a sudden pipe burst which was not caused by any construction. It was an old cast iron pipe containing fresh water that was due to be replaced next year. Last I heard, they believe it was the sudden fluctuation in temperature last week that caused the rupture.
