Concrete pour for first-of-its-kind building to span 24 hours
Sunny Isles Beach, FL (March 31, 2014) — More than 175 concrete trucks and a crew of 300+ will work over the course of a 24-hour span to lay the foundation for the highly-anticipated Porsche Design Tower Miami in Sunny Isles Beach. Representing one of the largest continuous foundation mat pours in the history of South Florida, the historic occasion will take place on Friday, April 4, at 10pm.
The concrete pour will utilize approximately 12,000 cubic yards of concrete and 2,000 tons of reinforcing steel to fill the excavated hole for the foundation of the ultra-luxury, 60-story tower.
Gil Dezer, president of New York/South Florida-based Dezer Development, will commemorate the concrete pour of the iconic Porsche Design Tower Miami with an invitation-only viewing party beginning at 9:00 pm in the Tower’s Sales Center. Porsche Design Tower buyers, brokers, city officials and VIP guests will have the unique opportunity to be part of a true construction experience. They can witness the continuous pumping of concrete from cameras affixed to cranes within a lounge-like setting.
“We are thrilled to be hosting this momentous occasion as we lay the foundation for the first-of-its-kind Porsche Design Tower,” said Gil Dezer. “We are not only building a tower that is sure to become a landmark in South Florida, but will serve as a catalyst for future Porsche Design Towers around the world. Today is a very historic day as we make Porsche Design’s first foray into residential real estate a reality.”
Reflecting the brand’s hallmarks of technical innovation, forward-thinking and iconic style, Porsche Design Tower Miami features a one-of-a-kind automobile lift system allowing owners to park their vehicles in ‘sky garages’ directly next to their units. While typically a luxury reserved for the most elite of penthouses, the building features plunge pools and outdoor summer kitchens on the balconies in almost every unit -a true sky residence.
“The Porsche Design Tower will be representative of our company’s commitment to engineered luxury and the fundamentals that deliver technically inspired products.”,says Dr. Juergen Gessler, CEO of the Porsche Design Group
Expansive residences range in size from 4,300 to 17,000 square feet and are priced from $6.1 million to $32.5 million. Occupancy slated for first quarter of 2016.
The Porsche Design Tower Miami, a 132-unit tower has over $600 million in sales, representing over 84% of the building.
