First Tower Cranes Installed At Downtown 5th After FAA Approves Three Of Them

Downtown 5th has had its first cranes installed.

Last week, the Federal Aviation Administration granted approval for three tower cranes to be installed at the project site.

One crane will reach 591 feet above ground, with the other two to reach 550 feet above ground. The permanent tower heights will be 495 feet above ground.

Downtown 5th is the biggest ever residential project in Miami’s Central Business District, with 1,042 apartments and 12,506 square feet of retail. Twin towers will rise over 50 floors each.

Melo Group is the developer.
