DNA Towers In Fort Lauderdale Submitted To FAA At 500 Feet

Fort Lauderdale’s proposed DNA Towers have been submitted to the Federal Aviation Administration for height approval.

According to plans submitted to Fort Lauderdale planners earlier this year, DNA is proposed to include:

  • 612 residential units (198 in the north tower, 414 in the south tower)
  • 74,246 square feet of commercial/retail
  • 890 parking spaces

The north tower is proposed to rise 40 stories, with the south tower 45 stories.

Both towers will have a main roof height of 472 feet above sea level, with the top of the decorative enclosure at 500 feet, according to the submittal to the city (the FAA submission lists a maximum height of 500 feet above ground, or 507 feet above sea level).

Brightline’s Fort Lauderdale station is less than a ten minute walk from the project site.

BH3 is the developer.

Sieger Suarez is the architect.

This is an awesome development. Glad to see more towers in FTL reach the limited FAA height. Hopefully this sparks more developers to push for this height and make the FAA reconsider the limit. I get that FLL is a couple of miles south but if Downtown Miami/ Brickell can have a 1,049ft height limit directly under the approach of MIA’s runways, there is no justification why FAA can’t increase the height limit for FTL when the runways are parallel to Downtown and not under the direct approach for FLL.

Fort Lauderdale has no requirement to conceal parking garages yet still gets something nice at human scale.

Casa Bella’s design is coherent.

It’s coherent to the extent it’s literally is a reused design from Related’s previous proposal. Same with Baccarap.

Fort Lauderdale needs this soo much especially in this area! The area is so dead on Friday nights and Saturday nights. This should help bring life to this area and a decent design.

The city of Ft. Lauderdale needs to fix the sewage system(s) before approving any plans for more development. There have been multimillion gallon breaks/floods of sewage in different areas of Ft. Lauderdale in the recent past. Can you say “The mother of all sewage systems breaks/floods in the near future” if this plus the other new development going up once it is activated!!!

Ummmm, Fort Lauderdale is a millennial hotspot. This particular neighborhood is called Flagler Villiage – thousands of new large apartment complexes have been built in this area over the past several years and are filled with wealthy millennials

Be careful or the admins will remove your comment. Apparently we’re not allowed to criticize their curation of Miami news stories… even if those news stories have nothing to do with Miami.
