Two Cranes Now Installed At Construction Site Of 54-Story Miami River Tower

Vertical construction is now set to begin at a Brickell property where the 54-story Miami River tower is planned.

The newly installed cranes are eventually planned to rise 760 feet above ground, according to a filing with the FAA.

The Miami River phase 1 tower itself is planned to top off with a permanent height of 640 feet above ground, making it the only tower to surpass the 600-foot mark this far west in Miami.

The first phase of Miami River will have 632 apartments, retail space, and a promenade on the river that will be open to the public.

Eventually, there will be multiple phases, with a total of 1,678 residential units, 330 hotel rooms, 196,882-square-feet of retail space, and 98,040-square-feet of office space.

Looking at the location of the cranes, it looks like the oval looking tower will be built first.

I was worried at first because the footprint looked like the boring square one.

Yeah but they need to connect jose Marti park, instead of doing this patch work-one side then the other river walk that doesn’t connect.

Excellent bookend for West Brickell to transition into mid-rise Riverside/Little Havana, and connect José Martí Park to what will someday be a southern Miami Riverwalk.

Little Havana riverside isn’t mid rise, it’s t4… meaning only three stories of height. That’s not mid rise to me. They need to upzone that are yesterday.

I’m talking about buildings like Neo Lofts and Amistad Apartments, the latter which frankly looks better than most market-rate housing even when half of it is transitory housing and the other “affordable.”

But look closely, you’ll see that between 8th and Flagler there is a wasteland of 2 story antiquated buildings that could easily create a new walkable neighborhood. There needs to be an upzoning in that area ASAP.

Amazing! Keep expanding westward!

West Brickell, Park West, and the A&E District are still full of empty lots. No need to turn Riverside into another parking podium hell without a Metrorail extension. The area is already gentrifying anyway, no matter what Joe Corolla feuds about.

Which tower are they building first?

I am assuming it is the curved tower?

Those curved ones can be tricky, but once you get the hang of it, it feels the same.

I wonder how many piles were needed for this building, and how deep they were required to go. I can’t find any pics of the piles, of course, they must have cameras to record construction so everything should be ok, but it never hurts to double check.

I sure hope the sewer treatment plants, street pipes, and pumps were sized properly for the thousands and thousands of new condos being finished each year. Someone better double check , then triple check.

I wonder why they didn’t install the crane in the elevator shaft. Hopefully they don’t swing and hit each other during hurricane season.

Nice development! Pulling that skyline further west. Too bad about that enormous highway cutting off what should be a beautiful walkable neighborhood though

The highway is suspended about 8 stories over the Miami River Greenway.
Shouldn’t matter at all.

Just significantly upzone the other side of the highway in Little Havana, then you won’t see the highway at all, it will be hidden by buildings.
