Legacy Miami Worldcenter Applies To FAA For A Height Increase

The Legacy Miami Worldcenter is now proposed to go even taller than originally planned – just months after height approval was granted.

In January, the Federal Aviation Administration approved a project height of 661 feet above ground, or 671 feet above sea level – making it the second tallest tower at Miami Worldcenter.

The developer of the project filed a new plan with the FAA on May 19 that would see the height of the tower increased.

Under the newly filed plans, Legacy would rise 681 feet above ground, or 691 feet above sea level.

That would make it just slightly shorter than the Paramount tower across the street, which is the tallest at Worldcenter at 699 feet above ground, or 709 feet above sea level.

Legacy’s condo units are now 100% sold out and the project is about to break ground, the developer said recently.

This can however create a delay on groundbreaking. This tower is majestic and should have been the tallest in the MWC.
Shame it was not thought out from the beginning

They should file for the max height of 1049 FT! But this is certainly a step in the right direction!

The height limit in that area is 709 FT MSL. A 1,049 FT tower in that area is NOT going to happen!

Asking for a height increase of just 10ft?.. that’s nothing, approve it.

I’m just happy we’re finally getting something tall and elegant in that spot. Now it’s time for them to do something with that Hotel/Convention spot.

We need a legendary skyscraper with observatory like The Edge in Manhattan.

The SkyRise, the Waldorf Astoria… But yes this could have been similar to the Edge if they made it a supertall.
