80-Story Cipriani Height Filed With FAA: Just Short Of Supertall Status

The developers of the 80-story Cipriani condo tower in Brickell have officially submitted tower heights to the Federal Aviation Administration.

Cipriani will come very close to being a supertall, but will fall just short, according to criteria from an organization calling itself the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat.

According to the March 28 FAA filing, Cipriani will reach a height of 940 feet above ground, or 950 feet above sea level.

The CTBUH criteria for meeting supertall status is 984 feet.

Cipriani will still be taller than any building that currently exists in Miami, although a number of other towers in the city are planned to reach 1,049 feet.

The Cipriani complex will include three towers, with rental apartments in the shorter buildings.

In addition to the 80-story tower, there will be a 59 story apartment tower (693 feet above ground, 710 feet above sea level, according to an FAA filing.

The third tower is planned to rise 50 stories and 604 feet according to a UDRB filing (it does not appear to have been filed with the FAA yet).

The Four Ambassadors have served their purpose. It’s time to move on. A developer needs to offer 400k a door, expensive for worth it.

… and where would the owners buy a place with comparable views and location for $400k? That’s why they’re not selling out.

The Four Seasons bought the air rights there so they didn’t block the view, so there won’t be any tall towers there.

IIRC, Panorama Tower was built on the site of a parking garage of a neighboring office building.

Wish they would demolish them instead. What a shame that those eyesores are on such prime property.

Well, they were the first condo towers to be built in the 1960s for said reason.

Theyre developing a mandarin oriental in boca and boca has the boca ratón a former Waldorf property. Also palm beach is probably the wealthy municipality in the country… we get it you love miami and think it’s number one but there’s also a lot of wealth located throughout south Florida not just miami.
