Developer Applies To Install 500-Foot Tower Crane At 37-Story District 225

An application was filed on December 16 for a tower crane to help build the 37-story District 225 tower in downtown Miami.

The crane is proposed to rise 500 feet above ground, or 511 feet above sea level.

While the crane is now under review, the FAA approved the permanent height of the tower on December 10.

According to an approval letter issued by the FAA, the tower will have a permanent height of 426 feet above ground, or 437 feet above sea level.

District 225 is planned to have a permanent height of 37 stories.

The project is being built without a parking garage, which accounts for its relatively shorter height.

A construction permit to begin the tower was applied for with Miami’s Building Department on November 5, and full plans were submitted on December 1 and are now in review.

Also in November, the developers said that 87% of 434 planned condo units had already been sold, in “record time.”

Love the infill but it sucks that we have this hole in between Brickell and upper downtown, Mana and Rok Family are ruining core Miami’s growth!

Not to mention MDC, and a county government who would rather build an ugly replacement courthouse and unalign roads for more cereal box towers.

Lol the amount of comments about nice infill. I will note that this building has no parking and it’s basically sold out! See, it’s possible!

This building has no parking because it’ll be built next to the MDC/NWSA parking garage.

If the height is shorter than what’s allowed to be built there, then what’s the need for FAA approval?

Downtown 5th should have been this quality. For the first time in years, Related delivers something decent.

it’s a beautiful building but I cannot understand why related wouldn’t build a dedicated drive/valet aisle that allows vehicles to move off the street during pick up drop off. This street is going to be a mess.

Perfect example is the Hyde Midtown (co-developed by Related!) which has a curbside valet that causes major traffic buildup during peak weekend hours.

This is urban planning 101!

Unlike like you, it appears a lot of people don’t care.

Would you rather have some ugly juxtaposed balconies where somebody could jump off from the side and land in the middle of another? It would look hideous and unnecessary for such a landlocked area.
