Crane Arrives In Brickell To Begin Building 640-Foot Miami River Tower

The first pieces of a tower crane have arrived at the Brickell site where a 54-story tower called Miami River is now under construction.

The cranes are planned to rise 760 feet above ground, according to a filing with the FAA in September.

Arrival of the crane likely indicates that vertical construction will begin soon.

Construction of a sea wall on the property also now appears to be underway.

The tower will become Miami’s westernmost building that is taller than 600 feet.

A $310 million construction loan is financing the first phase of work.

Site work began in August 2021, with a Notice of Commencement officially filed in November, shortly after construction financing was issued.

The first phase now under construction will have 632 apartments, retail space, and a promenade on the river that will be open to the public.

Eventually, several other towers are planned at the complex. When fully complete, the development is planned to have 1,678 residential units, 330 hotel rooms, 196,882-square-feet of retail space, and 98,040-square-feet of office space.

Lookin good. Hope they provide some zoning to East Little Havana/Riverside to enhance that project and spread the prosperity.

The gentrification of E.L.Havana is badly needed

How do you “provide” zoning? East Little Havana/Riverside is zoning to allow mid-rises. It’s still underutilized, both beautiful old pre-war buildings that should be preserved and restored, and crummy post-war shoeboxes that should be assembled and redeveloped.

I was wondering which tower will go up first, the Waldorf Astoria look alike, or the oval one?

Simply put, they only really have one tower design in the drawing board. The other one is a wish list

We’re about to see the construction of many towers going up in Miami.. and just think, we still can see plenty of vacant land and redevelopable lots to build many more towers on north of I-395.

That’s like building your house on say, NE 23d st and NE 2d ave and expect no other houses to be built in front of yours because they will block your view of Biscayne Bay.

The Latitude is the least of anyone’s concerns. It’s so outdated it’s nearly an eyesore at this point.

that is not a tower crane…That is the crawler crane that will handle the large auger drill for undergrounds piles. Tower crane will come once foundation work is done….probably 6 months from now.

And who do you suggest do the work? Heck, planners and construction workers in Miami can’t even get the Tri-Rail platform in Brightline’s Miami Central Station right.
