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.
