Grand Station Partners Gets FAA Approval For 322-Foot Tower

The FAA has granted approval for a 31-story apartment tower in downtown Miami.

The structure can be built up to 322 feet above ground and 333 feet above sea level, the agency ruled.

Approval was granted on June 2, after the application was submitted April 20.

Grand Station Partners LLC is planning to build 300 rental apartments on property owned by the Miami Parking Authority.

On March 28, the developer applied for a construction permit with the city, with groundbreaking expected in August. So far, the permit has been denied by 10 of 13 disciplines within the building department, with the other 3 still pending review.

Lets all celebrate that this property was wisely not given Mana. Congrats Parking Authority on being wise enough to see through the Slumlord of Flagler.

What are they building on the Post Office property along NW 3rd Ave?

That whole block is PRIME for redevelopment.

Does the FAA have to approve every single building? 322 feet is hardly a sky scrapper. So much freaking red tape!

It’s all relative, 32 stories is fairly tall and in the direction of a direct flight path from a runway

What it the minimum height the FAA gets involved with? Seems like 300 feet is low…

Anything 200 ft or more.

It could have been a solid filler without those ugly grey horizontal Tetris block strips. Frankly, something more imaginative should be here, across the street from the Wilkie D. Ferguson, Jr. U.S. Courthouse (one of Arquitectonica’s better recent buildings).

Seems like the FAA could do a one time study that produces a map with allowed building height per block.
But that would be too efficient, I guess.

That map exists.
