Metropolitan Miami is a mixed-use development covering three downtown Miami city blocks on a site previously occupied by the historical Henry Flagler's Royal Palm Hotel. The development includes five towers housing offices, hotels, and residents, as well as a supermarket, several retail spaces, and a cinema. Langan performed subsurface investigations for all structures, as well as observed and monitored the installation of test piles and load tests for all structures. Additionally, Langan performed environmental studies in order to determine the extent of petroleum and creosote impacted soils due to a former marine bulkhead that traversed the property.
