Aston Martin Residences Approved By The FAA To Become Miami’s Second Tallest

The Federal Aviation Administration has granted approval for Aston Martin Residences to be built.

With the approval, the tower is set to become the second tallest in Florida, behind only Brickell’s Panorama Tower.

FAA review took six months.

In June, developer Riverwalk East Development LLC, controlled by Argentina’s Coto family, applied for approval to build at a height of 816 feet above ground, or 820 feet above sea level.

In a December 5 letter, the agency said that the tower could be built at the height requested.

Construction on the 391-unit condo project got underway in October.

What the hell is the FAA taking six months to review a building proposal for?

Look, I said it before and I’ll say again, “a building on the ground is not a safety hazard… things going up in the air (planes, helicopters, missiles, rockets, jets, satellites, etc, etc) are the things that can fall from the sky and damage, destroy, or kill someone. We, the citizens of this country, are more afraid of that happening because those things CAN fall onto or be aimed at a tall building… not the other way around.

Remember, passenger jets were aimed at the World Trade Center towers in NYC on 9/11.

That is Exactly why it takes 6-months to review…There are Thousands of established Flight patterns to the airport that need to be studied, Unless you want an Airbus 380 Flying by your 45-Mill. Penthouse a few times a day.

Dude, that’s a flight pattern you’re talking about which can be changed by diverting the plane a few degrees this or that way. It doesn’t take six months to do that. And stop making stuff up… they don’t study “thousands of established flight patterns” to make a decision on these projects. They’re doing because they’re wondering what will happen if a plane falls out of the sky and smashes into a new highrise building on their watch.

Ok dude…So When a building HEIGHT is approved by the FAA this means that They stopped wondering about planes falling from the sky and feel the building is safe to build? Are you sure you are not making this up? because if true I’ll like a job at the FAA, you know Wondering.

That’s total nonsense, the problem is bureaucrats like you , and too many people in these agencies

The heights have already been established by agreement, it’s the airlines and their lobbying to push height down to save fuel to avoid steeper assents on take off, they use safety as a ruse , it’s all about dollars , don’t be fooled
