About 1,400 truckloads with more than 14,000 cubic yards of concrete will fill the foundation of Aston Martin Residences in downtown Miami this weekend.

Coastal Construction is handling the 36-hour continuous pour at the site at 300 Biscayne Boulevard Way. It’s expected to be the biggest concrete pour in Miami, surpassing others at about 13,000 cubic yards of concrete, like Paramount Miami Worldcenter in 2016 and Residences by Armani/Casa in 2017.

The steel piles at the 818-foot Aston Martin Residences will run 15 feet deep. The piling was completed in December, according to a fact sheet about the tower.

G&G Business Developments is developing the 66-story, 391-unit luxury condo tower. Coastal’s construction contract exceeds $400 million, according to Sean Murphy, co-president of Coastal.

Cervera Real Estate is handling sales and marketing of the tower’s units, which range in price from $750,000 to $50 million for the penthouse. Presales are currently at about 50 percent, Alicia Cervera Lamadrid said.

A four-story, 42,275-square-foot amenity section will include a chef’s kitchen, infinity pool, gym, virtual golf, two theaters, a full-service spa and more.

The developer secured a $200 million construction loan from Brazilian lender Itaú BBA International in November.

Coastal Construction will go vertical on the project shortly after the concrete pour is completed, and the building is expected to be delivered in 2022, according to a release.

Murphy said that the location of the site and its proximity to the Brickell bridge will mean that boom trucks, which typically surround the entire construction mat, will be offsite.

The pour will start at about 10 p.m. on Friday and continue through until Sunday, likely around noon, Murphy said.
