The last of the four towers in the Paraiso District, Gran Paraiso, is close to topping out at 55 stories.

When we last looked at the entire Paraiso District in March, Gran Paraiso was just past the half way mark of construction. 

During Hurricane Irma, the South crane jib collapsed during the heavy winds and causes the counterweights on the back to fall to the ground. Residents at two next door buildings were asked to evacuate for safety reasons.

When completed, over 1,300 units will be delivered to buyers in the Paraiso District.

When we last looked at the under construction One Thousand Museum on 1000 Biscayne Boulevard, the building was on the 31st floor. Construction has now reached the 38th floor of the 62 story tower.

A year ago, the base of the building was starting to take shape on the Pritzker Prize winning architect Zaha Hadid designed tower.

One of the unique features of One Thousand Museum is the exoskeleton, which supports the building. The exoskeleton is made of over 3,000 pieces of glass fiber reinforced concrete, which is made in Dubai and shipped to Miami every week. The panels are clamped around the steel rebar and poured with concrete to the give the exoskeleton a continuous flow.
