Federal Aviation Administration height approval is being requested for the 57-story Casa Bella by B&B Italia tower on Biscayne Boulevard.
According to the September 6 filing with the FAA, the tower is planned to reach a height of 638 feet above ground, or 648 feet above sea level.
In May, brokers for the project announced that 60% of the project’s 312 condo units had been sold.
In June, an application was submitted to Miami’s Building Department for a demolition permit to clear the site.
A construction permit does not yet appear to be in process, but an FAA filing is often a precursor to a construction permit application.
Construction was expected to begin in late 2022, with completion in 2026, brokers said earlier this year.
Alta Developers and Related Group are the developers.
