Construction Activities:

06/26/2016 Update – With the Hotel being topped out on the East side of the pedestal, we have been able to further reduce the amount of night activity.  We have and will continue to use our best efforts to manage night activity without slowing down progress.  

04/11/2016 Update – In an effort to further reduce noise from the site, the General contractor is building an enclosure for the concrete pump which will be in place before the 3am Tuesday pour.

04/04/2016 Update – As you are aware, we have been working on the recent increased noise issue at the Panorama site since hearing from the neighborhood over the past 10 days.  after investigating the issue, we determined the noise, seems to be the vibratory consolidators used when pumping the concrete.  These are a required part of the pour procedure. 

The first tactic, the General Contractor and their sub-contractors reviewed was if the pour schedule could be shifted to another time.  The issue with shifting the pour schedule becomes the inability to perform a 3-hour pour at 7am or 4pm on Brickell Bay Drive.  The traffic congestion this will create for the residential community at large is makes these times unfeasible. Also, the congestion would likely expand beyond Brickell Bay Drive, much like when the Miami River bridge goes up.  The General Contractor also looked at 7pm pours, but the Cement plants do not have drivers available due to FDOT restrictions on the drivers’ hours.

So, the General Contractor currently has their sub-contractors working overtime this afternoon and evening to build 120 lineal feet of 8-foot-high acoustic panels.  These will be attached to the working deck of the hotel.  These panels, coupled with the fact that the hotel will be above the Yacht Club and Mark parking pedestals after this week, should alleviate most if not all of the vibratory consolidator issue.  Additionally, the hotel structure will be complete in May. 

Ownership and the General Contractor continue to monitor this situation closely and thank everyone for working with us.

03/30/2016 Update – We have recently been hearing that their were complaints of a sawlike sound coming from the jobsite in the middle of the night.  This noise is in fact work that was/is being done on Brickell Bay Drive, which is unrelated to the Panorama Tower project.

05/27/2015 UPDATE – A few days ago, the right of way on Brickell Bay Drive was re-striped to reverse the center lane from Northbound to Southbound allowing for 2 Southbound lanes based on multiple requests from the Brickell Key neighborhood to the city.  The contractor shifted the lanes to an incorrect location.  We are currently working to get the situation rectified as soon as possible and will provide a timing update on this website when we have a schedule available.
