The Federal Aviation Administration has granted approval for the E11EVEN Residences tower to be built.
According to the FAA approval letter, E11EVEN is permitted to rise to a height of 698 feet above ground, or 709 feet above sea level.
The 709 foot height above sea level is the tallest permitted by the FAA in the neighborhood.
The Zaha Hadid-designed One Thousand Museum tower nearby was also built at that 709-foot height, as was Paramount Miami Worldcenter. However, One Thousand Museum sits on land at a slightly lower elevation, so it was able to be built at 704 feet above ground (Paramount is 699 feet above ground).
E11EVEN is planned to include 375 condo units.
The 65-story tower is planned to be built across the street from the E11EVEN 24-hour nightclub across the street.
A soft sales effort began in January, and buyers quickly snapped up units. By March, over 70 percent had been reserved, rising to 90 percent in April. By June, the building was completely reserved.
The developer has also said a second E11EVEN tower is also possible.
The project still needs city approval, and a construction permit isn’t yet pending. Soil testing was conducted in May.
