A tower crane, the first of two, has now been installed at the Atlantic Station construction site in Overtown.
The cranes are planned to rise 450 feet above ground, and 302 feet above ground, according to a filing with the FAA last year.
The eventual permanent height of the under-construction tower will be 395 feet above ground, or 404 feet above sea level.
The 36-story Atlantic Station (formerly Block 45) is the largest single phase mixed-income Transit-Oriented Development to ever get underway in Miami-Dade County, according to developers.
A groundbreaking ceremony took place in January, but construction had been underway for several months before then.
Atlantic Station is planned to include:
- 616 apartments
- 5,013 square feet of retail
- 15,093 square feet of full service restaurant
- 5,013 square feet of fast food restaurant
- 8-story garage with 605 parking spaces
The developers have said that 360 of the 616 units will be workforce housing.
Atlantic Pacific Communities, LLC is the developer of Block 45. Bermello Ajamil is the architect.
