Approved: Miami Plaza At 368 Feet, Downtown 5th At 495 Feet

Three Melo Group towers were granted Federal Aviation Administration approval last week.

The first, Miami Plaza, was approved for a height of 368 feet above ground, or 381 feet above sea level. The project also received final approval from Miami’s Planning & Zoning Department last week.

Also receiving approval was a twin-tower project called Downtown 5th. It is approved at 495 feet above ground, or 508 feet above sea level.

As of yesterday, a construction permit has been applied for at Miami Plaza and is pending review. Site work has not yet started, however.

Miami Plaza is planned as a 35-story apartment tower with 437 apartments and a token amount of retail. Downtown 5th will include twin 50-story towers, with an unknown number of apartments.
