900-Foot Cranes Submitted To FAA For Baccarat Construction Site

Plans for two new construction cranes have been submitted to the Federal Aviation Administration for the Baccarat Residences site in Brickell.

The filing was made on March 15.

One of the cranes is planned to reach a top height of 887 feet above ground and 889 feet above sea level, the filing states.

The second crane is planned to reach a top height of 906 feet above ground and 908 feet above sea level.

Construction has been underway since last year. A site work permit was issued in September, and a phased vertical permit was issued on January 17

The permanent height of Baccarat Residences is planned at 75 stories, or 848 feet above ground and 852 feet above sea level.

A second tower on the property is also under construction. That building will have 506 apartments in a 44-story tower.

Maybe they know they won’t be built? Just as well, too. Sell the lots and let a real developer and architect design something worthy of the location.

The second tower is already moving along, will be done before Baccarat.

So happy this development is proceeding as planned! Major win for YIMBYism.

I hope they respect the archaeological site and the people of Miami by transforming the riverwalk into a top-notch destination with retail, restaurants, and wide promenades, while also opening up the corridor under the Brickel Bridge with green spaces on both sides.

Not sure how this “respects the archaeological site”, but yeah, it would be amazing if they continued to develop the much needed riverwalk area

Honoring the ancient site, Miami could feature a giant circle monument, a recreation of the ancient structure, within a lush green space. The exhibit could extend into the interior space, showcasing images and artifacts. This would be complemented by world-class shopping and restaurants lining the expansive riverfront promenade, mirroring Dubai’s success. Our riverfront could be further enhanced similarly by giving much more attention to public space. If Dubai can do it, so can Miami.

It would be cool if they hired all the people from the original tribe and did ceremonial dances for the public to watch at dusk.

The right mix of amenities along the riverfront would certainly be welcomed by both residents and visitors. Hopefully “they” can get it right.

Can they simply replace the massive waterfront parking garage with a green park, exhibition space, and riverfront promenade as agreed with the city regarding the archaeological site? Hopefully, they’ll unveil accurate new renderings soon for us to admire!

Will all 3 buildings share the same amenities? If not, I’m not sure how the’yre going to fit all 3 podiums with nice pools and everything in such a small space. This location is nice enough to create a 3-tower-complex such as the amazing Icon next doors.

Except Icon has a lot of green space and expansive bay walk with waterfront restaurants – this location needs better pedestrian focus.

It will be a pleasure watching this beautiful building go up. Immigration used to have a large office there to process people for citizenship.

Yep! The third building (notably NOT a park or museum) will eventually replace Capital Grille, but won’t be built for another few years.

No the third lot has been designated as historic, probably only a concession because it’s equally historic and it will frame the bridge to have green space on both sides.

Not entirely true. The development is still in progress so there will absolutely be a third tower on this lot, but the developer will be required to incorporate some sort of commemorative piece to the ancient site. This won’t amount to much, and definitely not green space. See the Met 1 development as an example of what we can expect.

This appears to be wishful thinking from someone misinformed, yet I doubt anyone involved wishes it “won’t amount to much.” It will likely become a landmark destination for Miami, offering something surprising and completely innovative for this statement space at the inlet where we typically see lighthouses along the grand pedestrian-focused riverfront promenades and green-spaces.

Lmao The wishful thinking is exactly what you just posted. Please post your sources showing this will become green space and/or that the third tower won’t rise as planned.

The Hyatt rendering shows plans for the green space across the river, which makes sense given the narrow outdated bridge there, and I recall a decision saying the third lot can’t be built on because it’s historical. So it’s just logical to think developer will do something useful with it that at least benefits the other two towers and the broader location and Miami infrastructure? That’s my hunch. Plus, 2 can be more valuable to investors.

The decision was that the third building must incorporate some sort of commemorative piece to the ruins, but the building is still very much on track.

The riverfront should be built first, this should be mandatory so people can walk through.

Cranes peaking at only 50 ft above the top of the large flat roof tower. This means the 1150 to 1200 ft cranes approved for the 1045 ft Waldorf building could build a building at least 1100 ft high.
