This 83-story, mixed use building is the tallest residential building on the eastern seaboard, south of New York. Building use consists of medical offices, teaching facilities, a hotel, restaurants, retail space, and over 800 luxury rental apartments. Slag cement was used in over 13,000 cubic yards of concrete used for the mat foundation (9000 psi required), all vertical elements and 50% of the elevated decks. The Slag cement used in the mass concrete of the mat foundation allowed for higher strength gains and reduced peak heat of hydration.
