Brickell Avenue’s First Miami Presbyterian Church won approval to sell land to developers this week, paving the way for an iconic 80-story residential tower, according to the Herald.
A sale contract to the developers is now being finalized, church leaders told the paper.
The new tower is reportedly being designed by Sieger Suarez. It will become one of the tallest in Miami, in a deal that could net $240 million to the church.
In October 2021, plans were revealed for the tower, to be built on church land currently used as parking and for a school building.
That same month, church members voted in favor of the deal.
In November 2021, a member filed a complaint with the church’s regional governing body.
This week, the governing body ruled in favor of the church.
In a statement this week, church leader Dr. Christopher Benek said the new tower would be “iconic.”
13th Floor and Key International are the developers.
