Work Underway At One River Point, Could Become Miami’s Tallest

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.

Should this really get built it will be an astounding structure… The fact it’s on the point of Miami river and has much easier access I’m an out of downtown might make this one of most desirable residential towers in Miami …. It’s really nice design….

Looks like all these posts are by the developer’s PR firm. Pricing may be too high for this non-bayfront location. Cheers.

And I’ll take a wild guess and say you must’ve been hired by this developer’s competition.

Totally agree. In addition, what are they talking about “easy access”? You have to take narrow back streets through a homeless encampment. Not to mention the lack of traffic capacity these roads have once they unleash 1000 cars during AM and PM peak traffic from surrounding properties. Good luck to anyone willing to invest here.

Wow.. taking over height advantage

Moving dirt is one thing. When do the auger rigs arrive? Foundation equipment is when money is really moving 🙂

Our next tallest (albeit for a short amount of time)!

Of course, the property is virtually land locked.

Lots of conflicting information on height. I’ve heard everything from 770 to 928.

Building is stunning.. I’m a fan.

I like how it is a project that is under construction and is now considered to be the tallest that is either completed or under construction. It shows that the city is making progress for the future and will have a new addition that will be nice to the skyline. I hope Perez decides to take this to the next level and go to 933 feet. I want the tallest and the best for Miami. It’s time we make a larger shade for the west side of the city haha

Quiero verlo cuanto antes, será un orgullo de todos.

There used to be a beautiful green lawn there. Now all gone :'(

It won’t happen. That’s a 10/10 building on a 7/10 parcel, so prices are disproportionate. Someone should have held their horses before allowing design going that direction. That building should have been built right on the water, not in the river accessing below concrete highways. The explanation from the team members looks soooo trying hard…

Any update on this?

This is such a BS article written by the developers PR to minimize the bad press about them not selling enough to get the construction going.

People were saying the same things about Brickell FlatIron… and now all of those naysayer are quiet and running around with egg on their faces.

Please, there is a differente from Hugo Colombo that has built in South Florida and has a great reputation vs Karmely who has never built anything in South Florida and has been trying to sell this over priced development since 2015

This will be the greatest , tallest building, never to ever be built in Miami, Shahab is Making Miami Great Again…

This is a project that is out of scale for the Riverfront community that was approved based on money/power from developer. Nobody in this community wanted it but money talks in the city of Miami.

Just because people don’t want something doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be allowed. Its called property rights for a reason.

Did you read the part that is out of scale? Greed is no excuse to built ugly cities!

Fake News , just a show , there is no real construction work going on there, hopefully for the few buyers that have contracts the developers don’t start taking money out of escrow to fund this false start , this is a marketing stunt , not meaningful construction work

“no real construction work” always precedes real construction work … except for the unregenerate naysayer.
