Great to see the old Dupont Building mentioned, Hurricanes. A classic design that very few newer structures compete with from a grace and proportion scale, imo.

It also has the most beautiful elevator doors known to mankind. Bronze with gorgeous Everglades scenes. Wish I could find a pic.

Anyway...a classic.

I believe Cima's undergoing foundation work? Can anyone verify that?
I will go down and look! :) I mentioned on one of the downtown pics threads a while back that one of the pics seemed to indicate the site had been cleared for foundation work to start soon and was no longer being used as a staging ground for the other towers, so I'm curious myself in spite of the price of gas these days.

No, it's cancelled! The banner is in shreds along the Miami River and the site has weeds growing up around a rusting Kelly forklift beside the banner with a small pile of rusted rebar on the other side of the site. One of the hardhats doing landscaping work for the other towers confirmed it was "dead" after I found one who spoke English. I spoke to a security guard who said something was going up on the site eventually, but he didn't know what or when, just that it won't be Cima. :eek:hno:
