The Federal Aviation Administration has issued a determination that would allow a near supertall tower to be built across from Brickell City Centre.
The FAA had previously approved the same tower height for the property, but that approval had expired.
According to the new approval, a tower height of 954 feet above ground or 960 feet above sea level is permitted – identical to the height last approved by the FAA in 2019.
A supertall is generally defined as being at least 300 meters, or 984 feet.
A Burger King-anchored strip mall across from Brickell City Centre is currently on the property.
In 2017, Miami’s Planning & Zoning Department granted approval for a 78-story tower on the property called 18, designed by architect Nichols.
The plan included 392 residential units with four levels of retail at the base.
