FAKE NEWS.

Typical liberal can’t get your facts correct. He said “we fell in love”.

And if Trump can change the mind, and heart, of a someone like Kim, your just proving my point.

Genuine question: How can you build a beautiful building like this for $300 million and then we have buildings like panorama costing 800 million or One Bayfront Plaza at 1 billion plus. To be clear, I’m happy to see any development going up but what is driving the costs so high on other projects?

The towers by Tobir do have more rooms and more mixed use. So that is probably the reason it might cost another 100 million but I get what you’re saying.

Depends on the area. This tower is not located in Brickell and it’s not proposed to be as tall as One Bayfront Plaza.

Yeah I get that OBP is a massive tower and it warrants a higher price tag but when a beautiful project like this comes around at 1/3 the price it makes you wonder how much is being wasted on some of these projects. Look at Hard Rock stadium. Beautiful renovations but 400 million just to put a roof on the stadium?! That’s almost as much as the cost to build Marlins Park from the ground up.. but let’s not get into that project ahahaha

They not only put a roof on it, they also reworked the whole seating configuration of Hard Rock Stadium and also put in new food and drink areas among other things.

Many more bathrooms and kitchens being built in Panorama, overall SF of the project much larger, plus office, plus hotel. Center of Brickell adds to cost of construction as well.
