612-Unit Culmer Village Gets FAA Approval

The developer of Culmer Village was issued Federal Aviation Administration approval this week.

The FAA approval was issued on August 8. The developer is now permitted to build the towers up to a height of 325 feet above ground, or 337 feet above sea level.

Culmer Village was reviewed by Miami’s Urban Development Review Board in May 2022.

The developer has said that 40% of units will be affordable, with 60% workforce.

Two towers are planned to rise 20 stories and 25 stories.

The developer also signed a deal in March for water and sewer utilities.

A demolition permit for the site was approved last year.

According to the utilities agreement, Culmer Village will include:

  • 612 apartments
  • 12,804 square feet of retail
  • 376 parking spaces (not included in the utilities deal)

The Culmer Metrorail Station is just steps from the site.

Behar Font is the architect.

KTLC Biscayne LLC is the developer.

Surprise of the down votes … we don’t need more affordable housing? And this is located perfectly. Close to transit and it’s not prime property, but still close and assessable

An FAA approval was issued?.. for something that’s just 325ft tall in that area?

I mean, serious question.. who is running Miami, the FAA, or the politicians we vote for?

I thought about it and they probably have some maps on their end that they need to update incase for any landing/ take off path changes. Also for future technology’s like VTOL lanes in the sky.

Well fuck it.. if they’re that worried about take off and landings, then build a new airport out in the Everglades somewhere and then they won’t have to worry about fucking up buildings on the ground.

Why do they always look for complicated answers for simple solutions?

Um, they tried that in the 1960s. Turns out it’s a lot more complicated than routine FAA review of buildngs.

Yep. They need any potential danger mapped out. They probably have a 3d model of the skyline.

Yet still manages to look better than most Melo and Related’s crap. I mean, look at Soleste Grand Central, too. It’s market rate and looks like a subsidized senior housing project.

Better parking ratio than many so-called recent TODs.

Not gonna lie. It’s actually better looking than most of the high end stuff being built.

Culmer is the historic name of this area of Overtown. G/h/e/t/t/o would be Martin-Floyd-Taylor Homes or something.

Plenty of space further south too, where some people here wanted the soccer stadium plopped in the middle.

If you would have told me this was another one of West Brickells luxury condo projects I wouldn’t have questioned it
