Liquid Lofts And Edgewater’s Tallest Tower Approved By FAA, City Review Pending

The FAA has approved the height of both Liquid Lofts and 2000 Biscayne, even before the city has approved the two projects:

  • Liquid Lofts was approved for a height of 866 feet above ground, or 875 feet above sea level. Miami’s Planning and Zoning Department is recommending denial of setbacks needed to build the 76-story tower at 35 SW 1st Street. The tower is proposed to include 482 units and ground floor retail or restaurant space. In July, the Planning, Zoning and Appeals Board deferred a decision until October.
  • 2000 Biscayne was approved at a height of 646 feet above ground, or 649 feet above sea level. Verzasca Group has the property in contract and has said that the tower is being designed by a ‘world renowned architect’ and that it will be tallest in Edgewater. It is proposed to include 450 units, but hasn’t been approved by the city yet.

Wow, the ” Miami’s Planning and Zoning Department is recommending denial of setbacks needed to build the 76-story tower” for basically no other reason than just, because they can. What harm can there be in allowing this project the setbacks it needs to get built?

First need to look at the submission package.

The Liquid Lofts project wants to exceed lot coverage and build with just a fifteen feet set back from the property line (instead of the 30 feet that’s required). Exceeding lot coverage reduces green space and will result in a parking garage entrance that hogs the sidewalk and endangers pedestrians. Lessening setbacks results in square (instead of pyramid-style) buildings that block sunlight and air to the street.

This is Miami we want shade but I hear you about the garage ramps.

Two things:

1. This is Downtown Miami, if you want some green space to frolic in, take a short trip over to Biscayne National Park.

2. “parking garage entrance that hogs the sidewalk and endangers pedestrians.”

You’re kidding right? People chose to live in a place that’s a hurricane magnet like Miami and “Parking Garage Entrances” are supposed to be some kind of BIG threat to life and limb? And I haven’t even said anything about the hazards of driving in Miami.

Give me a break!

I’ve never seen any renderings of the 831 footer that the FAA also approved across from Centro (130 SE 1st Street lot).
