Shark tank will greet luxe Florida condo owners

Large Rendering #2 (Tower): https://cmgpbprealtime.files.wordpress.com/2015/02/pmg-echo_brickell-01-aerial_view-cityplan-14.jpg

Quote:
Buyers at the luxury Echo Brickell condominium will be welcomed home by a greeter not usually known for its hospitality.

The 180-unit Miami building will feature a 12,000-gallon shark tank in its opulent lobby.

While the rendering appears to show two very large sharks circling a center column, it’s more of a guideline than a picture of exactly what the aquarium will look like.

Planned for completion in mid-2017, the unique Echo Brickell building designed in collaboration with Carlos Ott, already has more than 85 percent of its units under contract.

And what’s left isn’t cheap. Most of the remaining units are penthouses, the most expensive of which runs upwards of $18 million.

In comparison to Echo Brickell’s 12,000-gallon tank, the largest residential aquarium in the U.S. is a 20,0000-gallon tank in Wisconsin, according to Aquanerd.com.

Thanks plopplop for the update. Looks like in a few weeks this should be u/c by SSP standards. Good news for Miami; last couple of weeks have seen a flurry of projects being started metro wise. More cranes will dot the coast line.

The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) already has this listed as under construction. Anyways I can't wait to see this skinny tower go vertical and plug in that gap in the skyline between the Chase tower & the Four Seasons.

It also looks like some new equipment was moved onto the site over the last couple of days.

Yes, that's the base for the tower crane.

That makes like 11 or 12 500+ footers under construction in the greater downtown area?

Yeah, its a pretty crazy number of 500+ foot towers u/c in this area. I'm excited about this building in particular because it has a really smooth look that isn't chopped up by miami-style balconies. By the way, at what point can we move this to the under construction section?

Nice another one u/c. This and 1000 museum are the sleekest things rising. Although I am quite a fan of SHoPs recent proposal for the Innovation Tower. A twisting design thats unlike others that tend to be dramatic. Fits in right.

So can we call this under construction or is it still not u/c by SSP standards?

Looks like advanced shoring is occurring. I don't see any caissions, but it might be a question of image resolution. But by any real world standards this is definitely u/c. Definitely advanced foundation work.

Also CTBUH lists this as under constriction. I'd say another 2 weeks or so and we should see caissons. Looks like there getting ready to dig them in.

I have Sixteen 500+ footers under construction within the city of Miami now. The Edgewater district immediately northeast of downtown has four out of those sixteen towers but that depends if you consider it part of the greater downtown area though.
