The concrete pour for the foundation of the 64-story Brickell Flatiron condo at 1001 South Miami Avenue.

General contractor Moss & Associates completed a 24-hour continuous concrete pour for the foundation of Brickell Flatiron, paving the way for vertical construction of the 64-story condominium in Miami’s Brickell financial district.

Moss & Associates orchestrated the 24-hour pour with nearly 150 mixing trucks that carried more than 50 million pounds of concrete to am excavated hole at the project site, 1001 South Miami Avenue.

The pour, which ended around 10 p.m. Saturday, created the condo tower’s concrete pad atop 700 steel pilings, each dug 100 feet deep.

CMC Group, led by veteran developer Ugo Colombo, is developing the amenity-rich, 549-unit condo tower, which will feature a rooftop spa, pool and gym, plus a theater, a billiard and cigar room, a wine cellar, and a 24-hour concierge and parking valet.

All condo units will have Italian-made custom cabinets, stainless steel appliances, marble floors, high ceilings with recessed lighting, energy-saving windows and glass-balcony railings. The unit floor plans have as many as five bedrooms.

Unit prices range from $465,000 to $2.5 million and penthouse prices up to $15.5 million.

Architect Luis Revuelta and interior architect Massimo Iosa Ghini of Italy’s Iosa Ghini Associati designed Brickell Flatiron, which will be one of the tallest residential towers in the United States when it opens in 2019.
