Miami Herald Staff

More than 170 trucks will pour 13,600 cubic yards of cement into the foundation of the 83-story Panorama Tower in downtown Miami starting late Friday night.

The pour — which developers believe will be the single largest in Florida’s history — starts at 11:00 p.m. and could last as long as 30 hours.

Several dozen City of Miami police officers will control traffic near the construction site at 1101 Brickell Ave.

Previous big pours include Trump Royal in Sunny Isles in 2006 (13,511 cubic yards), the Porsche Design Tower in Sunny Isles in 2014 (nearly 12,000 cubic yards), and the Santa Maria Condominium in downtown Miami in 1995 (10,327 cubic yards), according to Angelica Langston Nelon, a spokeswoman for the Panorama’s developers Florida East Coast Realty.

The new tower will include about 150,000 square feet of medical office and retail space, a 2,000 car parking garage, a 208-room hotel and 821 luxury rental apartments.
