FAA Approves Brickell Tower To be Built At 765 Feet Above Ground

The Federal Aviation Administration has approved construction of the Summit At Brickell tower after a relatively short review process.

The project height was filed with the FAA on April 5, with an approval letter issued this morning.

Summit At Brickell is planned to rise 765 feet above ground, or 769 feet above sea level at its highest point, according to the approval letter.

The 60-story tower is currently in review by Miami-Dade County planners. It is bypassing city review under the county’s Rapid Transit zoning plan. There does not yet appear to be a construction permit filing submitted to the county.

Summit is planned to include 500 apartments and 480 parking spaces.

Lore Development Group is the developer. Brazilian billionaire Daniel Dantas’ Opportunity is partnering with Leste Group to form Lore.

Corwil is the architect.

A little bit of a Waldorf theme.

Not the best building to copy either.

This is the third project to be approved for this site. Hopefully, it will be built this time.

Or the previous proposal with pizza-slice cladding.

Love this one. Great location. We’ve been waiting for something to fill in the chicken lot forever!

Cool, now get rid of the 7-Eleven and post-war low-rise apartment building. I’ve taken a liking to the shotgun shack. If the owner ever sells, clean it up for an interesting little restaurant.

I think the owner sold it recently. Good idea. Great location.

That thing is beyond saving. The owner neglected it to such a degree that it’s likely full of mold, rodents, cockroaches, everything. It will be nice when it’s finally razed.

Another missed opportunity to create a more esthetic and interesting skyscraper in the US. We keep settling for standard, square (if not tall) boring buildings (see China, Dubai etc). The architects and cities don’t seem to care what a blight these buildings impose on a cities skyline. Go figure…

Why does it seem that sincere and positive posts from residents are unfairly and artificially downvoted at times, as seen here, on this forum, despite conveying universally shared sentiments. Let’s encourage people to feel proud of our collective advancements and take an active role in shaping the future of our city.

500 apartments and only 480 parking spaces? Setting residents up for a miserable long term experience.

This is an iconic game changer.

For such a prime central location, I really recommend that the podium be lined with glass-fronted offices and residences (if not included already) with decorative awnings and moldings. Two floors should be dedicated to cafes and retail, featuring lofty ceilings, and ground-level cutouts at street-level for garden-side dining.

The first two floors, with a lovely view of the Metrorail/Metromover flyovers. If anything, this stretch is where parking podiums would be defensible.

Have you ever visited a park with trains passing through? I stayed at a five-star resort once, and they offered massages outside near the trains. My friends actually preferred it because they found the sound soothing and enjoyed the unique ambiance. Some people even opt for outdoor massages because they find the motion’s sound calming. Observing the trains and people strolling in the park is one of Miami’s most captivating aspects and shouldn’t be overlooked because of the influence of sponsored detractors.

Don’t let anyone convince you otherwise—this area is one of the most desirable and beautiful spots in Miami. It would be a waste not to enhance and distinguish it with new world-class improvements. With this in mind, remember your worth and value in the heart of Brickell.

This location is the least defensible for podiums. It’s among the rare pedestrian-only promenades in Miami and home to one of Miami’s most popular attractions, our beautiful Underline park.

2nd reference in as many days, this is not really the forum so a waste of our time though obviously you’re trying to promote it

One of my top picks in Miami, right in the heart of the city along the Underline, with new lively restaurants and cafes popping up along the linear park! The architecture is stunning, and the Brickell skyline is becoming even more iconic with about a dozen amazing buildings 🌆 It’s really putting our neighborhood on the map worldwide! 🌎

It’s on the same block as a 7-Eleven and chickenland. Get real.

This prime spot is right next to Marion, one of Brickell’s most exclusive and elegant dining establishments, as acclaimed by Condé Nast Traveler.

Picture it as described by one reviewer who spends her time between NYC and Cape Cod, “The atmosphere can be quiet and cozy one minute, and an all-out dinner and dance party the next… Let your hair down and never look back.”

Take a cue from the thriving neighboring garden seating for inspiration on crafting a chic inviting vibe along the Underline, akin to the ambiance of Champs Élysées in Paris. Alternatively, draw inspiration from Felice or Harry’s in West Palm Beach’s burgeoning urban center.

This will be a true gem in the center of Miami soon! 💎 🍽️ 💃🏻🌳🚝
