Major Supertall Tower Planned In Brickell Submitted To FAA At 1,049 Feet

A proposal to build an 82-story supertall tower on Brickell Avenue called Major has been submitted to the Federal Aviation Administration.

Major is planned to top off at a height of 1,042 feet above ground, or 1,049 feet above sea level, according to the new FAA filing

The application was submitted on March 31.

The developer of the project, JDS, is now based in Miami, according to its website.

The company recently completed the 1,428-foot 111 West 57th Street in New York, which is said to be the tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere.

In Miami, aviation restriction have limited buildings to a height of 1,049 feet above sea level, so far.

According to plans submitted to county reviewers last month, Major is proposed to include:

  • 259 residential units
  • 50,490 square feet of commercial / food and beverage spaces
  • Approximately 250 parking spaces (stacked spots accessible by car elevator)

Studio Sofield is the design consultant, with ODP the architect of record.

FAA filing doesn’t mean nothing I need to see utility deals and a loan for construction

It looks great. It looks like a New York or Chicago 1930s tower. Looks beautiful. Developers should push for a 1300ft high limit.

What, a measly 50 or 75 ft height increase is too much to you?

Yes! Like that we can build a tower that will be a beacon! a second statue of liberty, but for people that come from Latin America

What about from from New York? Sound more fitting. Also, the whole narrative the Statue of Liberty is a beacon for immigrants is B.S. It was a re-gifted expensive lighthouse celebrating America’s centennial after Egypt rejected rebuilding the Colossus of Rhodes.

Yes, that 1,049 cap is actually ridiculous, especially on Brickell. I can see Park West and the southern part of Edgewater because of the plane’s path but not Brickell

When MIA is an a west operation, the approach to runway 30 takes the planes very close to Brickell.

They were landing on runway 30 most of the day today. It gets used for arrivals about 50 percent of the time.

259 units seems extremely low for 82 floors and no mention of office/hotel

A super tower in NYC being planned will have only 1 Suite pet floor, so this does not seem unusual any more.

Per floor, not pet floor.

Not sure why the FAA has the limit so low. Most of brickell is not under any direct flight paths of commercial travel, even for emergencies. So 1,500ft+ should be a possibility.

There are buildings with a tenth the stories of this that have the same number of residential units. When will something be built for the people who live, work, and raise their families here and not something for millionaires and billionaires to hide their stolen wealth in?

Developers who have the money build these towers for people who can afford them.. there is nothing you or I can do about that. Big money makes money and expressing emotional concerns about how millionaires and billionaires they spend their money is futile.

Plenty of cheapshit apt buildings getting slapped up in Dania, Hollywood, North Miami, South Dade….. TNM rarely covers them, and if Fern Sixpack keeps looking for cheap homes in places like Brickell then he deserves futility.

Will be interesting to see how the entrance to parking is designed when completed. Either street they do it on will create major backup of traffic.

Now it just seems that we can’t break 1049. Why is there a cap? We should be trying to break that record like ny not build 10 buildings with the same height.
