830 Brickell, the office tower now rising across from Brickell City Centre, has had its first glass installed, a new photo shows.
There’s a lot more of it coming: in total, there will be 1,030,000 square feet of uninterrupted glass installed on the façade of the tower.
The glass itself is Low-E, according to the developers website. That generally refers to glass with an extremely thin, transparent coating that will minimize the amount of infrared and ultraviolet light while still allowing the maximum amount of light through as possible.
The glass is also hurricane impact resistant.
The 55-story tower will eventually reach a height of 724 feet above ground, making it Brickell’s tallest office tower and the second tallest office building in all of Miami.
The 765-foot Southeast Financial Center is the only office tower in Miami that is currently taller.
In March, the developers of the tower said that overall activity activity in the Miami real estate market was “beyond anything we have ever seen.”
Private equity firm Thoma Bravo is among the leases already signed at the building, and negotiations for hundreds of thousands of square feet were said to be ongoing.
The tower will include 650,000 square feet of Class A office space.
