Construction activity has commenced at One River Point, where twin condo towers are planned.
Sitework, including excavation, piles, seawall and foundation, are now underway, according to developer KAR Properties.
The buildings are expected to go vertical in early 2019. An article in the New York Times last week stating a project start date in 2019 actually referred to vertical construction, a representative said.
The towers are approved by the FAA for a height of 928 feet above ground, or 933 feet above sea level, making the towers the tallest either completed or under construction in all of Florida. By comparison, the recently completed Panorama Tower in Brickell is now the tallest in Florida at 868 feet above ground.
