Brickell Burger King Could Be Replaced With 960-Foot Tower

Brickell’s only Burger King serves thousands of meals to construction workers, but it may soon be replaced by a skyscraper.

Plans were submitted to the FAA last week for a 954-foot tower on the site, which would replace the entire Burger King strip mall at 10 Southwest Eighth Street. It would top out at 960 feet above sea level, thanks to a six-foot elevation of the property.

The developer behind the proposal wasn’t listed.

The property is surrounded on all sides by active development sites. They include Brickell City Centre, SLS Lux, Brickell Heights, and Solitair.
