Slurry wall foundation construction underway at $900 million Echelon Seaport mixed-use development
Construction of the $900 million, 1.3-million-square-foot Echelon Seaport development’s below-grade slurry wall foundation is now underway. The 3.5-acre project site is being prepared for excavation of trenches for the wall’s first sections, which will be excavated using slurry wall rigs with hydromill and grab excavators. Steel reinforcement cages will be installed in excavated slurry wall trenches, after which concrete will be poured into installed reinforcement cages to complete the slurry wall. Afterwards, slurry wall sections will be excavated, exposing the hardened concrete surrounding Echelon Seaport's foundation and underground parking garage.
Echelon Seaport, which broke ground last Wednesday, will feature three mixed-use buildings totaling 1.3 million square featuring 733 luxury residences, 125,000 square feet of first-class retail and restaurants and a 560-vehicle underground parking garage. Echelon Seaport is due to open in 2020; sales of the development’s condominium residences will commence this Fall. The following are photographs of Echelon Seaport:
