The Paramount Miami Worldcenter comprises seven residential and office buildings, several hotels, including a 1,700-room Marriott Marquis and a new convention center, all laid out along a six-block long shopping and dining promenade in a gigantic retail, residential, business and transportation complex. The signature 60-floor, 700-foot tall (214 m), $500-million residential skyscraper houses 512 luxury apartments with 10-foot ceilings and private elevators leading to the promenade and a Skydeck on the 60th-floor (with a 360° view of Greater Miami, Miami Beach and Biscayne Bay). Most units have outdoor living room-style terraces.
PENETRON ADMIX was used to treat key structural elements in the foundations of the Paramount Miami Worldcenter. The monumental multi-day pour of over 14,000 cubic yards (10,705 m3) of concrete launched the initial construction phase of the project.
