Fort Lauderdale’s second tallest building has just received FAA height approval.
RD East Las Olas, LLC, an affiliate of Miami’s Related Group, was granted approval by the FAA to build up to 494 feet above ground, or 499 feet above sea level.
The 47-story tower was approved by Fort Lauderdale city officials in 2019 for the 499-foot height, according to the Sun Sentinel.
RD Las Olas will include 311 apartments and ground floor retail at 201 S. Federal Highway.
City records show that a building permit is now in progress.
The tallest building in Fort Lauderdale is the 46-story 100 Las Olas, which topped off in 2019 at 499 feet above ground.
The FAA had approved 100 Las Olas for a height of 515 feet above ground, or 519 feet above sea level. The extra height clearance was used for a lightning rod.
John Moriarty is the contractor, according to the construction permit.
Cohen Freedman Encinosa is the architect.
