In Edgewater, the 57-story Missoni Baia tower is completing a 12-hour foundation pour today that will allow vertical construction to get underway.
Almost 300 concrete trucks began arriving this morning in groups of 30 to 40 for the pour, which will last around 12 hours. A total of 5,825 cubic yards (the equivalent of nearly 416 school buses) is being delivered.
The bottom mat foundation pour will be used to support a large portion of the vertical building structure, including the columns, walls, and elevator shaft.
Missoni Baia will eventually rise to 649 feet, equal to the height of the tallest tower in Edgewater (Elysee also just topped off at that height).
Missoni Baia’s parking garage has already topped off at seven stories.
Asymptote Architecture is designing the tower, which will include 249 units. Completion is scheduled for mid-2021.
Developer OKO Group is also building UNA Residences in Brickell, the 830 Brickell office tower, and will also be building an Aman-branded resort and residences at the former Versailles in Miami Beach.
