31-Story Midtown Miami Apartment Tower Gets FAA Approval, Advances In Permitting

The Midtown 7 building planned in Midtown Miami has received height approval from the Federal Aviation Administration while making new advances in the permitting process.

According to a May 22 determination letter, the tower is permitted to reach a maximum height of 352 feet above ground, or 367 feet above sea level.

The developer is listed on the FAA letter as PPF AMLI 3001 NE 1st Avenue, LLC.

A construction permit for the new tower was applied for with Miami’s Building Department in July. It entered its second review cycle in April, and remains in review as of this morning.

Coastal Construction is listed as the contractor on the construction permit.

Midtown 7 is planned to include:

  • 389 residential units
  • 28,000 square feet of ground floor retail space
  • 501 parking spaces

Developer AMLI completed the AMLI Wynwood development nearby last month, with 316 apartments.

Time for the Walmart-that-thankfully-never-happened lot to be developed with a crown jewel and worthy tower of Midtown’s tallest, and I’m talking articulation, a crown, and spire.

Once this one and midtown 1 gets completed, the row of NE 1st ave highrises will finally be completed. Only thing left will be proposals for the walmart lot and the grassy field next to target.

And not having a metro mover with heavy traffic above the core, hoping to see it more connected in time

Doubtful the metromover gets done anytime soon. City of Miami has a bunch of fools running things

The only fool is you who thinks a 30-mph glorified airport APM is going to help with transit, especially when there is an existing railroad that will have a nearby stop.

Seems like you haven’t been informed about all the delays with rail, which is much less efficient than Metro Mover, mainly due to frequent pedestrian accidents.

Yeah can’t wait to see $7 lattes and bland $12 soggy bagels replace the local food scene

i think they’re thinking more with these big developments the cost of building is very high and the retail units are very large so they can only be occupied by large chains, midtown is hardly a gastronomic wonderland but without prior planning and only building large scale developments, there isn’t space for independent retail.

Not core, outer ring. Next thing we know, you’ll be calling Redlands the core.

False. Midtown is within the accepted definition of the Urban Core.

Cite the dictionary 😂 reasonable minds understand you need a metro mover station to be in the core.

I like it but it’s a little tall for being so far above the core without a people mover.

This is squarely within the core, but thanks for playing!

so sad to have an inactivated podium when you have so much land to add liner units. You could literally put luxury townhomes on the perimeter and they would sell like hot cakes

Beggars can’t be choosers, at least their isn’t and tacky murals or clutter. It’s a nice clean parking podium.

I don’t get why Miami has almost no townhouses or rowhouses? So many great areas put these such as north or south of Wynwood or west of the design Design District. Most larger cities have lots of these and we could add so much density between larger pockets of buildings this way

Agree we should have low rises in this area and town homes, here and maybe along the river too

skyscrapers and single family suburbs both offer space for parking, townhouses and midrise apartments cant accomodate that without sacrificing living space. Edgewater is essentially a skyscraper suburb, very little at the ground level, towers with entire towns worth of amenities contained within, hence they always become too expensive to maintain after a few years. We’re missing the middle!
