Biscayne Beach is now ready to begin vertical construction.
On November 22, a convoy of trucks poured about 6500 tons of cement to create the foundation for the 51-story tower. The continuous pour lasted 12 hours, with about 300 cubic yards of cement poured per hour .
Developers Eastview Development and GTIS Partners have submitted plans to the FAA to build to a height of 593 feet above ground. Those plans are still being reviewed by the agency.
A tower crane is also now in place at the construction site, located at 711 NE 29th Street (see photos below).
When complete, Biscayne Beach will include 399 units. Hamptons-based eatery Tutto Il Giorno will be a tenant in the beach club.
