Four New Downtown Miami Towers Were Approved By The FAA Last Week

Several developers received approval from the FAA to build ‘supertall’ towers in downtown Miami last week.

Each of the approved buildings is taller than any existing tower in Florida.

The newly approved buildings include:

  • One Bayfront Plaza – 1,005 feet above ground, 1,010 feet above sea level
  • 1201 Brickell Bay Drive (Villa Magna) Tower 1 – 995 feet above ground, 1,000 feet above sea level
  • 1201 Brickell Bay Drive (Villa Magna) Tower 2 – 995 feet above ground, 1,000 feet above sea level
  • World Trade Center Of The Americas – 969 feet above ground, 980 feet above sea level

Tibor Hollo is the developer of One Bayfront Plaza, and has partnered with former Dodgers owner Frank McCourt and New York developer Corigin on Villa Magna.

I am glad, but does anybody knows why is the FAA suddenly approving all these heights? They used to be a pain!!!

They hurriedly approved Skyrise. The “cat was out of the bag” then.

I hope Liquid Lofts makes it without too many drawbacks. Something of that height that’s four or five blocks west of the Bay would look super in Miami’s skyline.

I hope the renders are only massing models, and the architecture isn’t that boring.

Villa magna is taller now so hopefully the design is different too..

The design will probably be different. I think the last time I read anything about this project, quite a while back, is that they were looking at going with a one, very tall building, instead of what’s in the rendering we see now.

One Bayfront Plaza has been on drawing board for over 4 years. I really hope it will be built as it is shown in this picture. The shape and the height would re-define our skyline.

Of all the resent height approved towers, the “Chisel” is the most attractive.

Are you people crazy??? Between 5-7 there is gridlock in the brickell area, the grocery stores are overcrowded, no public spaces, and dont get me started on the monthly flooding on Brickell Avenue. Bring in more 90 story towers… Really??? 🙁

Not only that we have over-priced towers being built already in the area, but now we have more buildings going up. Where are we going to fit all these people in an infrastructure that is over 100 years old? Not to mention the horrendous traffic and the shameful transportation (i.e. Metrorail’s 4 car train) that is antiquated (1 main train line, the airport line was a waste of our money)and nothing is being done to update it. Let’s fix the city’s long time flaws first before we can truly make a difference in the skyline.

One Bayfront Plaza would be a iconic and classic addition to the international and official image of downtown Miami.
It’s definitely the one supertall that I want to see built first before any other supertalls that have been proposed, in respect to downtown Miami and its internationally recognized skyline.
