Brickell’s Supertall Towers By Foster & Partners Resubmitted To The FAA At 1,049 Feet

Plans to build two supertall towers in Brickell have been resubmitted to the Federal Aviation Administration.

The Tower by Foster and Partners is a joint project of McCourt Global and Tibor Hollo’s Florida East Coast Realty.

According to the newly filed application submitted November 18, the project will rise 1,044 feet above ground, or 1,049 feet above sea level.

A construction schedule attached to the application says that work is planned to begin in November 2021, with completion in December 2024.

No construction permit for the property appears to be pending as of today.

The Towers by Foster and Partners is proposed to include residential, with an optional hotel.

The project had already been approved by the at 1,049 feet in 2016, but that approval expired.

Hollo also obtained FAA approval in January 2020 for another supertall building on Biscayne Boulevard, called One Bayfront Plaza. That tower is also approved to rise 1,044 feet above ground, or 1,049 feet above sea level.

You do, with the interior units staring at each other? Seems strange to me. Clearly designed to maximize FAR and little else. Cheers.

Would love to see this project build but I doubt it. They’ll keep resubmitting for the next 4 years then sell the site to someone who actually wants to build

The good news is that this is the last (or one of the last) water front parcel left in the Brickell area. Therefore, it will come out of the ground sooner, or later for sure.

maybe, been saying that for years. Frankly there would be a better chance of it being built if it wasn’t as big. this is a once every decade window type of project.

True. I feel One Museum is the once per decade building for 2010-2020. It will be years before we see something this beautiful get built. One can hope tho!!!

So if you want to break ground in November 2021, you should file the permit now. Someone tell them that.

Submissions to the FAA don’t mean anything, utility deals and construction permits is all that matters.

FAA approves the height, then a developer can spend money on the permits, etc.

Always liked this design, hopefully they are serious about building the thing. Damn renders are so old that the skyline looks totally different from what’s shown in the render!

Because of the current market conditions, they should redesign this and make it one building.

The building won’t be unique anymore if they plan on merging it into one building that’s 1,049 ft above sea level.

They proposed this design years ago… market conditions have changed since then.

Miami 21 is so “passe,” just redesign it into a beautiful and sleek tall tower.

They are just renewing their agreement and meanwhile for the past 20 years this is just a horrible parking space that gets flooded every month. They are blocking the Bay walkway and they don’t have any tree around the lot.
So the Brickell residents can’t jog next to the water and have to go around the horrible parking lot with no shade to protect them. The City should force the owners to at least put trees there.

Yep.. and people come on this site and bash The Melo Group.

Go figure….

Because Melo builds uniform crap. FECR builds more impressive projects. Panorama took time, so will this. They’d rather wait for the right market conditions than scale back for subpar development.

Wasn’t FECR trying to stop a building across from it because it would mess up their bay views 🤔

What does that have to do with my statement that they don’t build subpar cookie cutter crap like Melo?

“Because Melo builds uniform crap”

Hmmm… I didn’t know The Melo Group just wants to build uniformed crap in glamorous areas?

Well, keep on waiting then.. meanwhile, Melo, continue building.

Go north of 395 and name each building without looking up their names first. They all look the same.

Panorama a rental, and this needs to be justified as a condo, so not quite cannibalizing.

Panorama was originally supposed to be a condo then changed to rental bc of the market. They could do the same thing with this if they want.
