Photos: Aston Martin Residences Progress, One Year After Groundbreaking

Here’s what the Aston Martin Residences site looks like, a year after the project broke ground.

On October 10, 2017, foundation equipment arrived at the site. A groundbreaking ceremony was held a week later on October 18.

Developer G and G has obtained approval to build a 391-unit, 66-story condo tower at 816 feet above ground, or 820 feet above sea level.

In July, the developer filed for FAA approval for two tower cranes to be installed and begin vertical construction. The first crane would rise 889 feet, or 887 feet above sea level. The second would rise 851 feet, or 849 feet above sea level. Approval does not yet appear to have been granted.

A year and it still has not gone vertical?

Do you realize how long it took to prepare the ground for this huge tower?

This building is pretty damn big and at the edge of the river. Pretty sure this is a normal amount of time taken for the foundation of a project such as this.

I know, that goes to show the extensive permitting processes in the City of Miami.

You do realize it took like a year or two to make the foundation of the World Trade Center, right?

It’s hard to understand how developers delude themselves that they can fool a sophisticated brokerage community and buyers about starting construction when sooner or later the reality is plainly evident to the naked eye. No one can blame Coto for holding off since this project isn’t an exception to the market forces, although it is more attractive than most of it’s riverfront competitors. Rather than further blather about yacht beach shuttles and extensive ground preparation Coto should work now to preserve its credibility for a future relaunch. Frankly no one is listening any more, although they could do the city a great favor by giving back the barricaded street lane in the meantime. Cheers.

Hey TNM, you can show all the construction activity you want on this Aston Martin site, but in the opinion of some of these naysayers who post comments it’s still just “FAKE NEWS” to them.

They had the cash to self-finance and then the Argentinian economy crashed.

It’s evident the lack of a construction knowledge that’s on this thread. There are almost over 300 TBEs “piles” installed to date. The cages are buried. Once excavation starts later this year they will be exposed. The Mat FND is scheduled to be poured in April next year. Unfortunately a building of this size and magnitude requires some time to get out of the ground. It is really not uncommon. This project is under construction whether you want to believe it or not.

Behind schedule and over budget (if it gets built)…tell me I’m wrong.

I’ll assume a lot of site preparation had to be done, considering it’s soft location along a river, and possibility of finding another stone circle. Please almost be done and start going vertical by the end of the year!
