76-Story Liquid Lofts Resubmitted To The FAA

Charles Sieger’s Liquid Lofts, which is proposed to become one of Miami’s tallest buildings, is again requesting Federal Aviation Administration height approval.

The proposal to build a 76-story apartment tower was submitted to the FAA in 2015, and approved. An extension was later granted with expiration in late 2018.

On June 1 , the building was submitted once again as a new application, while referencing the previous approval. If another approval is granted, it would allow for yet more time to begin work.

According to the new application, Liquid Lofts will rise 866 feet above ground or 875 feet above sea level – the same as in the original application.

In total, 482 apartments and 311 parking spaces are planned.

That is a bad comment. They’re are height restrictions for safety reasons. Get over it.

And the FAA isn’t even the one who is delaying construction. They’ve already approved the plans.

I don’t have to get over anything, it’s the FAA that has to get over it’s over reach of power. Nobody should wait months for the feds approval in downtown. The airport needs it’s own stuff reworked, downtown including one museum and any other building reduced because of the feds should not be punished for the airports bad path.

I wonder if they are just beating around the bush. Okan Tower is being built with enthusiasm. This does not seem to be.

Oh well, my mistake. I was under the impression they did since they started construction since they was activity going on there. Either way, they seem more interested in getting the tower done than these guys.

Why are these people playing games? I have been anxious to see this project grace the skyline ever since I saw the rendering. But I have now come to the opinion that like so many other highrise proposals, they too are just teasing us.

I’m not, and hopefully it’s a flip, so somebody who isn’t Mana can buy it and the adjacent parcels on Flagler Street for something substantial and innovative which isn’t a pencil box. If the FECI courthouse deal fails, but Gimenez doesn’t his way with the crap parcel next to the Miami’s Children’s Courthouse, maybe a deal for relocating the courthouse into the building could be worked out. Paul S. Walker park can be moved to the adjacent parking lot, and function as a plaza for the courthouse and Claude Pepper Federal Building.

You want to see too many steps take place in order for what you would like to take place. This proposal has already been approved and all they have to do is start construction.

Um, the existing garage has to be demolished.

Um, well then, demolishing a garage is just part of the construction.

This is roughly the same height as Panorama?

I hope they approve it but you have to break ground in the next 6 months after that we can only grant a height of 500ft. Then we can see if this developer is serious or are they trying to flip this property.

That area is riddled with bums, so good luck trying to sell an apt. in the area without it being cleaned up first.

Everywhere and anywhere we here of a new building proposal in downtown, people start making comments about homeless people and bums. That’s just like complaining about building new housing somewhere because of the mosquitoes in South Florida.

Sorry, I meant “hear.”

I hear you but that’s not how development works… generally bums hang around undeveloped property. Once you develop an area they tend to find another place to hangout. I read a lot of comments about bums in the city but why don’t we help these people rather than talk bad about them. Before you tell me to practice what I preach I do for the homeless all the time they really need help.

I rather live in downtown Miami surrounded by bums homeless, prostitutes, and their pimps than in ANY of the soulless Miami Suburbs.

Or a realtor might describe it, “a transitional neighborhood”.

Some of us like Backyards for our kids taht do not flood and also not been surrounded by ignorant people like you that think what they have its better than everyone else’ is a bonus.
It’s a rather large city, so are free to live wherever your parents decide to move to.

And some of us like the urban environment, so our kids can grow up interacting with people of different background and races, so they don’t have to live hypnotized by the Disney Channel in the back seat of a minivan filled with ignored plastic toys while we obsessively rush to the next shopping mall (to buy more plastic toys), so they can walk and enjoy life, so they learn that using public transportation doesn’t make you a second-class citizen.
