The FAA granted approval yesterday for SkyRise Miami to be built at a height of 1,049 feet above sea level.
SkyRise was approved in 2008 for a height of 1,000 feet above sea level, at a time when the FAA had stricter height limits. Under newly eased height restrictions, towers in Miami have recently been approved at 1,049 feet above sea level.
The SkyRise site sits at just four feet above sea level, so the tower can rise 1,045 feet above ground – the tallest in Miami. Nearby, PMG was approved for a condo tower that is 1,041 feet above ground at 300 Biscayne.
