Edge On The River Moves Forward With FAA Application

The developer behind the tall, narrow Edge on the River tower proposed in Brickell has filed building plans with the Federal Aviation Administration.

According to the filing submitted yesterday, the tower would top off at 625 feet above ground, or 630 feet above sea level.

In 2014, the agency granted approval to a previous developer for a similarly sized building.

The new proposal includes a 198-room hotel and 70 residential condo units. Miami officials have said it is compliant with zoning rules, despite the unusually slim building size.

A rooftop restaurant is also planned, along with a ground floor restaurant.

Leo Macedo of the Brick Group is the developer, and Kobi Karp is the architect.
