The second 52-story tower at Downtown 5th is about to top off.
Shell contractor L&R Structural Corp. wrote on Tuesday that the roof pour for the west tower is scheduled for this week.
The milestone comes exactly a year after foundation work for the twin-tower project began. Production pile work for the first tower started in December 2019 (test piles began two months earlier).
The first Downtown 5th tower topped off in October 2020.
Downtown 5th is the biggest residential project ever built in Downtown Miami’s Central Business District.
It is also the biggest project ever for Melo Group, the prolific Miami developer.
There will be 1,042 apartments, 1049 parking spaces, and 12,506 square feet of retail between the two buildings.
The towers are being built to a height of 495 feet above ground.
