The “Great Cement Event” took place in Sunny Isles Beach this weekend, with 24,000 tons poured at the foundation for the south tower of the Estates at Acqualina.

It was one of the biggest residential pours in the history of the region, the developer said.

More than 1000 concrete trucks took part in the 17-hour event, which started on Friday December 14 at 9pm.

A second concrete pour for the North Tower will take place in early 2019.

The Estates at Acqualina is a $1.6 billion, twin-tower project with 245 ultra-luxury residences. Construction began in May 2018.

Each of the towers will become the tallest in Sunny Isles at around 700 feet above sea level, pending FAA approval.
