The Federal Aviation Administration has issued height approval for a new tower at Miami Worldcenter.
Apartment developer Lynd acquired the Worldcenter parcel last August, in a $30 million deal.
According to the June 9 FAA notification, the building on Lynd’s site is permitted to rise 698 feet above ground, or 709 feet above sea level
That would make it identical in height to Paramount, which is the current tallest building at Worldcenter.
The approval letter was issued by the FAA to 925 N Miami LLC, in San Antonio, Texas.
The application for height approval was first submitted to the FAA in September 2022, so it took around nine months to receive a determination.
A broker involved in the sale of the property to Lynd previously said he expects the developer to bring “a whole new level of residential living” to Worldcenter “that the market has not seen before.”
Up to 650 residential units can be built.
