This massive 1.5 million-square-foot mixed-use, village within a city spans several city blocks. Logistical concerns were thought out before commencing work in the field. The project's most challenging component was the construction of a two-level, 1,001-space underground garage spanning seven acres 25 feet below the water table. Special attention to safety and coordination was critical due to the project's proximity to Dadeland Mall, a major retail destination, businesses and residential areas.
