Foundation Pour For 65-Story Brickell Flatiron Is Scheduled For This Weekend

A massive foundation pour is scheduled to begin Friday for the 552-unit Brickell Flatiron condo tower.

The pour, which is the largest ever for contractor Moss Construction, will include:

  • 12,500 cubic yards
  • 1,300 truckloads
  • 24 hours of continuous pour

The huge foundation is needed for the tower to be able to reach a planned height of 65 stories, or 750 feet.

It is good to be back after a long weekend and read this article. There were many people on this site that replied to my comments saying that Flatiron would never be built. Well, looks like it will be all done by the 2018.

It’s funny how people don’t know anything and will say it wont be built. Same was said about MWC an even though it’s not what it started out the be it’s still getting built.

Miami is my hometown and I wish all of Miami’s Developers would just team up and challenge the FAA’s Height restrictions on Skyscrapers or at least help establish a no fly zone in certain areas.

Places like Auckland, New Zealand and even Los Angeles have Buildings that surpass the 1,049 FT height restriction that is imposed here.

We cant forget that we can no longer afford to keep building in the west everglades so the only way to go is up as far as land is concerned.

LOL. The lack of building 1049-1999 feet = building in the everglades? Does that make sense to anyone?

No. Actually building only supertall buildings makes more sense so we only build enough buildings per year to keep up with the population and not ruin the environment !!!

After all the engineering it takes for a skyscraper, it is more energy and materials, including the high footprint cement production, per capita even with a moderate unit size building that many other residential types, especially dense mid-rises, but even traditional houses. 432 Park Avenue is less green-urban than a five floor walk up. This is such a juvenile fascination.

Thats they should focus on making the buildings Eco-Friendly with urban farming involved.

Auckland is in New Zealand. Study your geography and no they actually have bigger buildings than Miami.

Miami and Miami downtown actually is,what you can see,driving from Miami Beach and looking at it, from MacArthur causeway.That picture (from Miami post cards),didn’t change a lot in last 20 years.Since completion of PAC,all you could see,has been empty and ugly parking lots,cheap hotels like Holliday Inn, old office buildings,updated market place.In same time,after all these constructions, there is nothing much to see of Brickell area,it’s just so “behind”.
I wonder what happened to long time proposed renovation and beautification of Biscayne bulevard?What about famous
I-305 bridge construction?

The DDA is holding a month long demonstration project for Biscayne Blvd (Biscayne Green) throughout January. The kickoff is actually tomorrow. Sounds like the plan is moving forward, but still in the development stages: http://www.biscaynegreenmiami.com/
