Brickell City Centre’s EAST hotel tower is set to top off within the next few weeks.
Crews are pouring the 40th level of the 290-room hotel tower this week. Swire Properties has approval to build up to 516 feet.
Several other towers in the project are also racing upwards. The 43-story Reach condo tower will eventually be a few feet taller than the EAST hotel. It passed the 21st level in October, and is scheduled for completion and closings in late 2015 or early 2016.
