Construction is rapidly progressing at the Missoni Baia site in Edgewater where the parking garage has reached three quarters of its full height since construction teams completed the sixth floor. The tower first went vertical in September 2018 and broke ground in October 2017. Over the phase of construction construction teams poured a total of 5,840 cubic yards of concrete which equates to over 580 full drum loads of a cement mixer truck. Using two crawler cranes on site construction teams also lifted over 2.6 million pounds of precast joist beams, over half a million pounds of precast soffit beams and 675 tons of reinforcing steel; in total roughly 2,255 tons of material lifted or 11 times the weight of the Missoni Baia 200-ton crawler crane. In the next phase of construction, the Missoni Baia amenities deck and tennis court will be poured and cast and foundation work for the tower will continue as the 57-story tower nears its completion in 2020.
Missoni Baia is being developed by OKO Group, the Miami-based development company founded by international real estate magnate and hotelier, Vladislav Doronin, in partnership with Cain International.
