This past weekend saw a huge construction milestone for yet another residential development in Miami with 'Brickell' in its name. Construction contractor Moss & Associates completed a 24-hour continuous concrete foundation pour for Brickell Flatiron, an incoming 64-storey project nestled in the expanding financial district of Florida's largest metropolitan area.

The operation at 1001 South Miami Avenue involved approximately 700 workers and 150 concrete mixing trucks that produced and poured about 50 million pounds of concrete into the excavation, a carefully orchestrated act that ended around 10 PM on Saturday. The concrete pad now rests upon 700 steel pilings, dug 100 feet into the ground to provide structural stability.

Sitting at about 60 percent sold, the luxury condominium's 549 units range in price from $465,000 to $2.5 million. Big spenders will have to shell out up to $15.5 million to acquire a penthouse suite. But no matter where your unit is located, it will come equipped with Italian-made custom cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, marble flooring, and high ceilings. The development is bursting with amenities, which have been grouped at strategic points in the building. The 64th floor Sky Spa will boast a rooftop pool, spa, and a 6,300-square-foot fitness centre. Another amenity deck on the 17th and 18th floors comes equipped with an additional resort-style lap pool, while indoor-outdoor conveniences include a theatre, wine room, event space, play room, and business centre.

Developed by Ugo Colombo's CMC Group, the development will be given a unique identity courtesy of architect Luis Revuelta, interior designer Massimo Iosa Ghini, and artist Julian Schnabel, who is designing exclusive artwork for the building's public spaces. Expected to open in 2019, the development is charging ahead despite a slowdown in Miami's building boom. While the market takes a breather, this one is just beginning its ascent into the skyline.
