First Tower At Miami River Complex Submitted To FAA At 640 Feet, Marking Westward Expansion Of Skyline

Developers of the first tower at the Miami River complex have applied for Federal Aviation Administration height approval.

It will become the westernmost 600+ foot tower in Miami, if the FAA approves.

The tower is proposed to rise 640 feet above ground, or 645 feet above sea level, according to the FAA application submitted on June 14.

There are fewer than 15 towers in Miami that now surpass the 600 foot mark, with all of them located further east closer to Biscayne Bay.

The Miami River complex went through Planning Approval in 2015, and the developers recently obtained financing from Michael Dell’s MSD Partners. A construction permit was applied for in June.

The first phase will include 632 residential units and ground floor retail in a 54-story tower.

Eventually, the project will include five phases, including a second tower at an identical height.

If they actually build this with all of that glass it will be the most beautiful project built on the river.

Glad to see those eyesore lots getting developed. I wonder why it took so long. Location is perfect and so close to BCC and Metrorail

When Utility deals happen, this project will actually start. plenty of empty lots get FAA approval.

They need to build the over 600ft tower first.

It will be the crown jewel of West Brickell/Southside. With the river interaction and connectivity with the park, it even beats that Frankenstein’s Monster project.

the tower that offsets the floor plats is a much better interpretation of this concept that the proposed Waldorf Astoria tower on Biscayne.

Waitaminute.. what do we need county and city commissions and county and city mayors for? Forget state and local governments and just let the FAA run everything.
