Here’s How 1,049-Foot Skyrise Miami Would Be Brought In By Barge & Assembled

Skyrise Miami will be built with pieces brought in by barge and assembled at a construction site behind Bayside Marketplace, according to a video of the planned construction procedure.

The construction process is being called the Skyrise push up method.

First, the concrete core of the tower is built, the video shows.

Then, pieces of the tower itself begin arriving by barge and sliding into an elevator system. The top of the tower arrives first, with the lower portions arriving last.

It won’t be cheap to build. According to a construction permit filed last month, the estimated hard cost to build is around $200 million.

Can we see the video? What’s the link?

It used to be on YouTube (circa 2015), I think Skyrise took it off because it wasnt available after a quick search. Someone with a lot of free time could probably track it down.

Is this going to even be good for storms and stuff like that? I trust the engineering is gonna be good but I don’t know, there seems to be a willingness to get it done faster but smooth is fast so I hope they don’t mess it up later on. Look at what happened to Florida International Universitys bridge.

Not a good comparison, and not even the same type of build!!

I’ve been studying prefabricated modular construction lately. It’s actually better than traditional construction methods. In fact, it allows the building to be built much much faster and built 10 to 20% cheaper compared to traditional construction methods. Modular construction is also more durable and the build quality is way better since it is been built in a temperature controlled environment and it’s more sustainable as an environmentally friendly Alternative to conventional methods. Also, if the construction pieces are heavier weight, it can withstand better in hurricanes look it up. You’ll see what I mean.

I care where it is being built. Let me rephrase the question so that you may possibly understand in your drunken state of mind. Are 200 million dollars of Miami construction jobs being outsourced overseas irrespective of the fact that this is an Eb5 project? If so, is this not ironic and strange and it doesn’t sound like Miami Winning to me.

I believe in your high on prescription drugs mindset, you’re completely ignorant to what’s going on around you. 200 million dollars is a pittance compared to just the cars built by KIA alone yearly and shipped to the USA to be sold. Dude, jobs in construction, manufacturing, and electronics in this country is abysmal compared to other nations in this world. EB-5 is a financial gimmick and I understand how other people in this world undertake it to purchase citizenship in this country. But at least their not trying to skirt borders or float in on some man made raft and claim they have rights once they get here. Now, since you or I don’t have the power to stop this elementary school designed object that this alzheimer’s infested brain developer insist on putting in the forefront of Miami’s skyline, then like I said, “Who cares?.. this design is butt ugly” and I care! There’s got to be way more better designs that this developer could’ve chosen from than this ridiculous looking tripe.

You don’t like the design – fine, it is your opinion and we can respectfully disagree. I 100% support eb5 and even support reducing the threshold as I encourage good legal immigration. However, the money coming into the country from the program needs to be spent in the designated area as intended by the statute to benefit that particular area. Or, at least stay in the USA. The building jobs/money should not be outsourced overseas on any eb5 project. You are completely missing the point, and will never comprehend in your drunken state.

You are an idealist looking for corrections in the wrong place. “Needs to be” and “should not” is just useless rhetoric against the rich and powerful in this country and the world. Unless you enter a drug treatment program, you’ll always be confused and continue to look at society through a muddled and foggy mind.

I have nothing against the rich and powerful in the Country or the world. In fact, I would bet that I have more money than you. Go educate yourself on the purpose of the eb5 legislation and if you don’t like it, go cry to your congresspeople or senators. America first! That money should stay here as intended for the benefit of the USA.
…and you keep looking through society in your drunken state.

This clown thinks he’s better and smarter than everyone who comes on this site. Surely in your drug infested mind, delusion has made a home.

“In fact, I would bet that I have more money than you”

Getting off track and personal isn’t helping your argument.

“Go educate yourself on the purpose of the eb5 legislation and if you don’t like it, go cry to your congresspeople or senators”

What a nincompoop.

“Are 200 million dollars of Miami construction jobs being outsourced overseas irrespective of the fact that this is an Eb5 project?”

Sounds to me like you’re the one crying about what’s happening in the entire EB-5 program. Go to Jeff Berkowitz and jump down his throat about this ugly designed skyrise crap being built in pieces overseas and shipped to Miami on a barge to then be assembled on land.

Again son, enter yourself into a drug treatment program because like the saying goes, “A MIND IS A TERRIBLE THING TO WASTE!”

This sounds like modular construction. Correct me if I’m wrong. I’ve been looking into modular construction for the past couple of days now and it’s very sustainable, it’s cheap, environmentally friendly, and it can get this done much faster.

What this method of modular construction tells me, is that once construction begins, it will be twice as fast to complete the tower.
