78-Story Tower Gets Final Approval To Replace Brickell Burger King

Miami’s Planning & Zoning Department has granted final approval for the proposed 18 tower in Brickell.

If built, the 78-story tower would have 392 residential units along with retail space, replacing a strip mall that includes Burger King across from Brickell City Centre.

The developer is proposing 923,000 square feet of total FLR, on a lot where 615,384 square feet is permitted, requiring a public benefit contribution. The project height of 78 stories also exceeds a 48-story height limit, requiring additional public benefit contribution.

Waivers also include a reduction in parking from the 794 spaces required to just 457, and vehicular service and parking access from a principal frontage.

The project was approved by the Urban Development Review Board in February.
