And the pipe / street construction going on in this area (unsure if related to Aston Martin) has absolutely crippled traffic. Northbound lanes on Brickell Bridge merge into one lane, which continues through the bend past Aston Martin and through the Intercontinental Hotel. Working in Brickell and having to get home to South Beach, I bought an electric bike just to pass over the bridge and then get an uber around bayside. Saves over a half hour vs. if I was driving because of the traffic.

Why don’t you just continue on to South Beach on the electric bike?

Because it makes too much sense.

I have once, went over the Venetian. Going over the MacArthur is just too dangerous. The venetian ride was just a tad bit too long to do on a regular basis. From the AA arena to west avenue, I can get there in about 8 minutes in an uber – going over Venetian on electric bike and then back to 6th and west where I live took about 25 minutes.

I test rode an electric bike recently; it was fantastic. Admittedly, it was a high-end one, but there are bike share companies introducing them in certain markets. With the right infrastructure, these could be a hit in Miami. The pedal-assist would help not drenching yourself in sweat during summer months, and they move considerably quicker than traditional bikes.

This project is a disaster for traffic in downtown. What a joke that two of three lanes in a major road are on ice for a billionaire’s tower #Miami

Can you guess how much property taxes the city, county and state will collect from these billionaire condos?

There would be your answer to the temporary inconvenience.

Cervera is an expert in coming up with lame excuses to make you all think that the project is going to move forward. They haven’t started construction and all they do is move dirt from one side of the lot to the next… Theres a huge rumor that this project is actually trying to be sold with the deposits they have collected to date. Any developer would be stupid to pick up what these guys have done.

Um yeah, that’s really smart to pay for these heavy equipments and their operators to be there just to move dirt around.

I guess you’ve tried and have been successful at that tactic yourself?

Lol. Amazing how you have no idea what’s going on. What you’re seeing is the DSM process. (Deep
Soil Mix). It takes time. It’s part of the foundation construction. It’s not “moving dirt”. Rest assured, it full steam ahead.

Instead of taking up so many lanes on the street they should have barges to store the material on.
