Photos show activity this week at the site where the 100-story Waldorf Astoria Hotel & Residences is planned.

A foundation permit was issued for the tower in May, and equipment from foundation contractor Keller is now at the site.

Expect these foundations to take some time, especially since they are building a foundation.

That is discouragingly little activity post ground breaking for a future supertall tower. Hopefully things will move into full swing over the Summer. This has got to be the one. Everything is aligned. They have the foundation permit. 80% of the building is sold. Go Miami!

as an addendum it appears these photos were taken early in the morning if the lighting is any indication. But I expect more hardware on site before work begins.

Is it really 80% sold or is that reserved. Big difference. Also has there been financing or utilities agreement announced yet?

80% sold with hard contracts. Go Miami!

You can get a permit for a building right now and have to wait for a crew to install foundations. Then wait for the shell crew. Then wait for others.

It is a very tight labor market in construction and many out of state contractors are VERY ACTIVE pulling workers away from Miami right now to plug their gaps.

The developer still hasn’t received financing. That’s why they haven’t started yet

With what they have done to the economy, can you blame banks on taking second and third looks before financing ?

He’s been out of office for a year and a half. The economy was better off even still deep in the pandemic when he left office.

I wonder if your karma cliche also applies to Michael Avenatti. Meanwhile, your star “witnesses” in the January 6th soap opera are in deep sand for lying under oath.
