Photos Of 43-Story Luma Miami Worldcenter Beginning Vertical Construction

At the 43-story Luma Miami Worldcenter residential tower, vertical construction began last month following an August foundation pour.

The tower will have a permanent height of 493 feet above ground, or 503 feet above sea level when complete. Temporary cranes will be installed during construction at 586 feet above ground.

Luma is being developed by Zom Living and The Moinian Group.

It will include 434 ultra-luxury apartment rentals, in a tower designed by architect Stantec.

These photos taken last month show massive amount of steel being put into place:
