Panorama Tower Is So Tall That Half Of Each Concrete Pour Lost In Pumps

Panorama Tower is now Florida’s tallest, but it hasn’t been easy to build.

According to the developers, simply pumping concrete to the top is a challenge. Five cubic yards, or the equivalent of half a truck, gets stuck in the pumping lines going from the ground floor to the top, because of the height, the developer told the SFBJ.

Panorama will include 821 apartment units, along with hotel, retail and medical office.

Rent for a one bedroom on the 85th floor will cost $4,200, compared to $2,500 for a similar unit on the 25th floor. 150 units have already been reserved.

Developer FECR had to take over construction of Panorama from the contractor due to personnel issues. Records show that the former contractor Tutor Perini filed a lien last month for $9,723,241.49.
