An application to build yet another 649 foot tower in Edgewater has just been filed.
According to the filing with the Federal Aviation Administration, the new tower would replace two buildings along the water on 29th Street.
The application was submitted on July 6.
It states that the new tower would rise 646 feet above ground, or 649 feet above sea level, if approved by the FAA.
649 feet is the maximum permitted height by the FAA in the Edgewater area due to the proximity of Miami International Airport’s runways, and a number of other towers have either been proposed or recently built at that height.
Two properties appear to be included in the project site for the new tower. The Harbor 29 condo, which has 15 units and was built in 1972, is the larger of the two. A 10-unit apartment building next door constructed in 1954 also appears to be included.
The 57-story Elysee tower was completed this year nearby and is among those built to the maximum height in Edgewater. Its height is 644 feet above ground, and 649 feet above sea level.
