Downtown Property Owner Applies For FAA Approval To Build 831-Foot Tower (Again)

The owner of a surface parking lot in downtown Miami has applied for Federal Aviation Administration approval to build a tower rising 831 feet.

According to the filing, a potential building on the property would reach a height of 840 feet above sea level.

It is at least the third time an application has been filed with the FAA for a building to reach that height.

The FAA approved applications for the same height in both 2015 and 2019, but those approvals expired.

The property is located at 130 SE 1st Street and includes 23,800 square feet of space. The Centro condo tower is across the street.

FTP Investment Corporation of San Francisco is the owner of the site. The company bought the land in 2006 for $6 million.

I’ve always loved this street. The trees make it very different. Always reminds me of NYC. Wish we had more sidewalk trees like this instead of so many palms. Sidewalk temps are usually cooler in these two blocks.

Any redevelopment here should include the piece of crap flea market next door, which was supposed to be temporary as a taxpayer until ripe for development of a skyscraper. Please… some innovative architecture that complements the historic Huntington Building.

Are there enough 1% ers to go around? Or is all this housing built for them is to enable them to live in multiple buildings at the same time (perhaps splitting body parts)? I am just not seeing how the pure numbers work over the long term. At this rate are we hoping that the well heeled buys into 11.2 apts on average + an estate somewhere? Way to go.
