FAA Approves One River Point To Be Built At 817 Feet, Construction Permit Pending

Downtown Miami’s One River Point towers have been granted approval by the Federal Aviation Administration for a height of 817 feet above ground.

Construction permits are now being reviewed by the city.

Rafael Vinoly Architects was the applicant that received the FAA approval. A total height of 827 feet above sea level is permitted.

It is the second time the FAA has approved the height of One River Point, although a previous approval was for a taller building. In 2014, the FAA approved a building height of 928 feet above ground on the same property. The approval expired in September 2018.

City records show two construction permits now pending, including a phased foundation permit being actively worked on as of this month. A separate building permit for vertical construction of the tower is also pending.

Developer Kar Properties recently completed a foundation pour for the 38-story 2000 Ocean tower in Hallandale Beach.

Nice addition to the skyline. If that’s actually a giant waterfall that will be stunning.

If it gets build with the fountain, it it very likely that it be turned off most of the time. It was a problem in Apogee and Jade in Sunny Isles. The breeze keeps blowing off the water, and it gets stained in no time.

Also, they ended the waterfall at EPIC. It’s now just those mosaic tiles that do not look good with the EPIC logo.

Sorry, but you’re wrong. I lived there back in the day. The Wind is not that narrow and there is not that large of a gap from the Ivy from that angle.

According to iBuild, the only permits on this site are for seawall/riverwalk improvements….not foundation. This ain’t going anywhere any time soon.

I hate to say this but the development won’t happen for years. No sales number have been released and this is the 2nd or 3rd time getting a construction permit from the FAA.

FAA doesn’t give construction permits or have any authority to stop a building…they just say “hey we approve this height” they have no authority on the ground

They actually have no authority to tell the City or county how high a building can be built, they only suggest due to what they think a plane will do if it’s running on one engine.

(If anybody doesn’t believe me, you can research it yourselves)

Who in the City is going to approve the traffic volume capacity on a cul-de-sac shared by three other towers? No one will be able to get out during peak morning and afternoon rush hour. Who would want to live here?

Lol, residential buildings don’t even have parking minimums. They encourage high density residential development without parking. Wouldn’t be surprised if they didn’t even look at trip generation for these types of projects. If there’s retail or office, different story.

That’s why I said it would look better with just one of these buildings on this spot.

KAR Properties are crooks. That Iranian asshole Sahib Karmley or whatever his name is, is a Dick Head. Doesn’t pay his subs. Oh yea, and the entire property is a hazardous waste site. Don’t get suckered in to overypaying an Iranian mobster.

This has to be the ugliest and most out of scale project in the downtown river area. Let’s hope it never gets built.

I’m not against the design or concept of these towers, I just think for this spot along the river, a structure this massive looks awkward. I think if this twin tower concept was somewhere along Biscayne overlooking the Bay, It’ll definitely have a better impact.

Sales aren’t great in my opinion, but my opinion doesn’t matter. KAR has a lot of money behind them, they own the land, and they are not lowering any prices. Shahab Karmely has stated a hundred times that he is not lowering the quality or prices to accelerate sales.

Yep, he can sit on this and the other parcels in Riverfront for as long as necessary.
