The Federal Aviation Administration just granted approval for the tallest building ever in Sunny Isles.
According to the newly issued approval letter, the north tower at the St. Regis Residences Sunny Isles is now approved to rise 744 feet above ground, or 750 feet above sea level.
That is one foot taller than the Bentley Residences proposed down the block, which is approved by the FAA to rise 743 feet above ground, or 749 feet above sea level.
The south tower of St. Regis Residences is now approved to rise 739 feet above ground, or 750 feet above sea level.
The tallest existing building in Sunny Isles is the Estates at Acqualina North Tower, which developers say topped off at 667 feet above ground. Construction actually has not been completed yet.
Prior to that, buildings in Sunny Isles hit a maximum height of around 650 feet above sea level.
Construction at both Bentley Residences and St. Regis Residences are expected to get underway in 2023.
