Legacy Miami Worldcenter is getting a height increase.
The tower is now expected to rise 20 feet taller than originally planned, according to a new approval letter issued by the Federal Aviation Administration yesterday.
Legacy was originally planned to rise 661 feet above ground, or 671 feet above sea level – making it the second tallest tower at Miami Worldcenter.
Now, the tower will rise 681 feet above ground, or 691 feet above sea level – still the second tallest at Worldcenter, at least for now.
Paramount Miami Worldcenter across the street is currently the tallest at 699 feet above ground, or 709 feet above sea level.
Legacy is planned to have an iconic atrium with a spire at the top of the tower, along with a glass pool hanging off the rooftop’s edge.
The developer has applied for a construction permit and recently selected a contractor. Condo units are 100% sold out.
