750-Foot Cranes Planned At Brickell Construction Site

Plans were submitted to the FAA on June 3 for two cranes at a Brickell construction site.

The cranes are to be installed at the St. Regis Residences property on Brickell Avenue.

Two cranes are each planned to rise 741 feet above ground, or 750 feet above sea level, the filing states.

Earlier this year, Miami’s Building Department issued a total demolition permit to clear a 17-story building currently on the site.

The new St. Regis tower is planned to rise 52 stories, or 630 feet above ground and 639 feet above sea level. A master construction permit is in review, and phased vertical and site work permits are in process.

Stunning bay walk! If only it would connect all the way.

Brickell was flooded horribly with the rains this week. Who would want to live there?

About 15 million people, but only 40,000 actually do.

Some streets in the area flood occasionally, less frequently than other parts of Miami, but clear quickly with little damage due to the elevated infrastructure. Brickell, especially around Southside Park, is about 15-20 feet above sea level, making it one of the highest points in Miami.

This tower is fantastic and will make the city’s skyline even more beautiful. In the original project, there would be two towers, the second, behind this one, with slightly smaller apartments. I believe that, in the future, this second tower will be reintroduced. I think they are just not being built together, to convey the image of a single tower, luxury and exclusivity.

The second tower isn’t being added. The architect and developer have both confirmed this.

Copy and paste that original design up the road in Brickell north of SW 15th Road, along the Miami River, and/or in Edgewater.

More buildings 200 to 350 m. Cranes are allowed to hit 380 meters. For residential buildings, elevators and other logistics should be efficient up to near 100 floors, unlike some office buildings that have more significant rush hours where increasing height and floors gives steep diminishing returns.

Urban planning be damned. Are people who already live here, and will be exposed to this strip of construction bedlam for the next 5 years receive some form of Real Estate abatement? Because the City will not be able to improve infrastructure to accomodate 150 k more people living in this area without proper education facilities (schools) 50,000 more vehicles trying to access brickell from the North (bridges). This development craze smells of severe corruption and political funding

I am afraid the beautiful view of the skyline might be blocked by the Santa Maria to the north of this building.

If you can afford it, you’re not paying for the view of a skyline in a city. You’re paying for the bay.

we need tons more that DO NOT allow short term (AIRB&B) rentals. These units do NOTHING to address the housing shortage. Build more hotels if you want to house tourists
