Okan Tower To Begin Installing Piles In The Next Few Weeks

Construction is moving at the Okan Tower site in downtown Miami, according to a social media post from the project sales team.

Drilling to install piles is planned to begin within the next few weeks, Okan’s sales director said in a video that also showcased the construction site.

Okan Tower is planned to rise 70 stories, or 902 feet, making it the tallest building officially under construction in Miami.

Fortune International Group is handling sales at Okan.

Founder Edgardo DeFortuna told the SFBJ this month that some of the lower-priced inventory at Okan has now sold out. The cheapest available unit is now priced at $670,000, he said.

Completion is scheduled for 2026.

Good to hear about the strong sales. Showroom office was brimming last week when I walked by. This is an important tower in Miami’s skyline

Not just a long skinny toothpick like what’s been going up around Manhattan lately.

Like the Paradiso towers ? One was supposed to see huge cicles from afar…. Every time I drive by I ask myself where are those white circles I saw in the marketing brochures and original renderings ? !

I agree with you. The whole paradiso, I would say the whole edgewater is disappointing

I’m no expert, but I truly believe that it will be this building with Aston Martin and hopefully, legacy and Waldorf Astoria the ones to bring real flavor to Miami’s skyline.
Let’s be real, miami has long skyline, but it is lacking in variety.

Amen, we to get taller to be a true skyline, 3rd in the country and we do have an impressive skyline, but we need 1000 + footers to be legit.

Replace stacked boxes, a.k.a. Waldorf Astoria with the revised One BCC.

You do realize you can’t just “swap” building design right? They are derived from their unique site conditions and developer requests. They are not interchangeable.

Legacy’s mini spire sets it apart … too bad it’s so small . The Miami skyline needs a real spire!

I can’t wait for 2026 there will be at least 5 super tall buildings in Miami, Miami deserves to have 10 to 15 1000 + Foot towers, were 3rd in the country for biggest and tallest skyline, but we don’t have any super tall buildings just alot of midsized buildings.

What proof do you have and present that Miami has the “boxiest skyline in the US?”

Whether it is the boxiest or not is less important than the fact that variety is important. Buildings with curvature and buildings with spires catch the eye in a pleasant way. Spires are problematic in Miami given FAA restrictions. Using a lot of height for non-earning space hurts project returns, so unfortunately we won’t see too many. Aston Martin has done a great job, maximizing the utility and visual appeal of an unusual piece of land. Kudos to them for that.

With the Height limit so low, wasting height on spires would just cost developers more money, especially since you can’t rent or sell a spire. If there was no limit, then they would make more sense because it would a cheaper way to build tall and would make for better landmarks.

Too bad they have Civic Construction building it… It’s going to be delayed and guarantee the quality won’t be there. They should have Moss or Balfour Beatty, Coastal or someone else build this who uses real subs and ensure safety
