Top-Offs Sometimes Include Pig Roasts
Everybody loves a good topping-out, even though they’re happening with startling regularity here in the Miami skyline (especially when it comes to multifamily). This week Melo Group’s 165-unit Bay House, which is now 97% sold out, has topped-off construction at 38 stories. Earlier this year, the developer topped off the 300-unit Flagler on the River; a few months later, the property was fully leased before opening for occupancy.
Also, Swire Properties topped off its east block tower, the first of six buildings under construction at Brickell City Centre, its $1B master-planned mixed-use development. The east tower, located at 89 SE Eighth St, will house the project’s luxury hotel, EAST, Miami. Over 500 construction workers celebrated with a ceremonial tree installation and pig roast luncheon. Even better for them, after the luncheon they got the rest of the day off. (You need time to sleep off all that pork.)
