Casa Bella By B&B Italia Submitted To FAA At 648 Feet

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.

not a pure box and decent height seems like a solid offering

It could be far better, but certainly worse. I’ll take it as one of Related’s recycled projects (Auberge). Still better than Baccarat, and might block mundane Melody from view.

Finally! Looking forward to the demolition of that crusty old strip mall.

Which render should I believe… They show two different styles. It’s great that they are building something here. The entire area is empty and ripe for development. With the Signature bridge, southern Edgewater will be transformed.

It’s the A&E District.

Absolutely nobody here uses that name. People either say Downtown or Edgewater for this area. Where are you commenting from?

I lived at Miami Plaza up until a month ago, I always called it either the Melo District or Omni.

Let’s hope people realize the name is in Italian and not in Spanish. The pronunciation is bella, as in rhyming with ‘hella.’

What was that stately old high-rise that used to be a block west from here? The b*****d School Board demolished it for a parking lot, I believe.

Why does this need FAA approval if the 1000+ ft Waldorf Astoria was approved along with 1000 Museum, which are all nearby?
