TBT (February 27, 2015) - 4 years ago, the tallest building in Miami - Panorama Tower was just starting to go vertical with two cranes installed at the site. The building would top off in April 2017 at 868 feet with incredible 360 views of all of Miami. Panorama Tower would eventually open in May 2018.

Since starting construction and pouring the foundation at Panorama Tower, the building is slowly making its way above ground level.

Two cranes have been added to the site at 1101 Brickell Bay Drive.

TBT (February 26, 2015) - Four years ago the under construction Grove at Grand Bay was about to top off at 20 stories in Coconut Grove. The two twisting buildings designed by Bjarke Ingels would eventually officially top off in June 2015. The buildings were completed in August 2016. Construction progress photos of the Grove at Grand Bay can be viewed here.

The Grove at Grand Bay is an architectural marvel located in Coconut Grove, Miami. When you drive into Coconut Grove the two twisting towers immediately catch your eye and are gorgeous to look at. At night is when the towers really come to life and the twisting columns are more pronounced and prominent. 

The two twenty story towers were designed by architect Bjarke Ingels and developed by Terra Group. Both the towers are a floor away from being topped out to their maximum height.

Cranes Removed At Park Grove

Since topping off in March, the crane is being removed at the Club Residences of Park Grove. One crane has been removed from Two Park Grove with the third crane coming down soon.

One Thousand Museum Reaches The 38th Floor Of Construction

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.

Panorama Tower is getting closer to topping out and is currently on the 81st floor of construction. The building has surpassed the Four Seasons Miami as the tallest building in Miami and when Panorama Tower tops out, it will reach 83 stories and 868 feet.

Previously, we showed views from the 57th floor, the 67th floor and now in the photos below, we show the views from the 81st floor. Panorama Tower has no doubt the best views in the city as you can see Miami Beach, Key Biscayne, Sunny Isles Beach and even as far away as Fort Lauderdale from top. The last two floors, the 82nd and 83rd, will hold all the mechanical units of the building.

The hoist has been removed from the hotel, which will be a Hyatt Centric and most of the hotel rooms are nearly finished.
