Photos: Gran Paraiso Gets Its Second Crane Back

A second crane was installed at Gran Paraiso last week, replacing one that was damaged during Hurricane Irma nearly two months ago.

(One crane remains out of service today.)

Prior to the storm, sales agents said that the 53-story Gran Paraiso was scheduled to open in Spring of 2018.

As of early August, contractors had been preparing to pour level 49 of the tower, according to emails sent by Paraiso staff.

Darn, was hoping they’d have to tear down this monstrosity.

These people continue to litter our skyline with ugly, ugly mammoth buildings…cookie-cutter and bland. Wish the public had more input into these kinds of things before they become an eye sore for generations…

How many floors of generic painted stucco over concrete block and outdoor fire escape halls with ridiculous one bulb “porchlights”do we have now thanks to Felated? Several thousand at least. The more textured the stucco, the faster the mildew grows and the faster repainting is needed. Several-year old buildings in Brickell and downtown look like slums already because of the mildew and dirt. Will Miami ever grow up and use use real exterior cladding materials like every other city in the country?

We don’t have a Lowes/Home Depot or a LA Fitness in this gigantic area of half a million well to do populace of SouthBeach/MiamiBeach + Downtown + Park West + Edgewater + Wynwood + Upper East Side. I think both these corporations are blind AF. Is someone listening?

Against big box retailers, no. Against Walmart after seeing what it does to communities with higher crime rates and traffic and lower property values reversing revitalization efforts, yes.

There is one in Little Havana on 8th Street and one in North Miami on 123rd. Plenty of other hardware stores around.
