Take a look: Brickell City Centre’s construction progress

The finish line is in site for Brickell City Centre, which is on track to hit its completion date of 2016.

Developer Swire Properties, which put up all $1.05 billion needed to fund the 5.4 million-square-foot project, led the media on a tour of the construction site Tuesday.

Much of the site’s walkways are bare concrete, and most of the glass is still covered in blue protective film. Stephen Owens, president of Swire, said construction was moving around the clock up until recently.

Stops on the tour included a preview of the Sugar rooftop bar and lounge, which will occupy the top floor of the 40-story East Hotel. Its outdoor seating area will have views of both Brickell and the bay.

The skeleton of the development’s  500,000-square-foot shopping center is in place, and the thousand-foot-long “climate ribbon,” which will cool shoppers by focusing breezes through the complex, is beginning to resemble initial renderings.

Both of the project’s residential towers topped off earlier this year, promising 780 luxury condos, and Brickell City Centre as a whole is more than 80-percent complete.
