Miami River Developer Files Plans To Install 765 Foot Tower Cranes

The developer of a 54-story residential tower on the Miami River has applied for permission to install two tower cranes to assist with vertical construction.

According to the September 20 filing with the FAA, the two cranes will rise 760 feet above ground, or 765 feet above sea level.

In total, the cranes will be in place for an estimated 18 months.

It is likely that the cranes will become the tallest ever this far inland in Miami.

The tower itself will have a permanent height of 640 feet above ground, or 645 feet above sea level, according to a July filing with the FAA. At that height, it will become the westernmost 600-foot tower ever built in Miami.

Construction is already underway at the site, with piling work now taking place.

The first tower will have 532 residential units.

A second tower will also eventually be built at the same height, part of five phases planned.

When all phases are completed, the project will have:

  • 1,678 residential units
  • 330 hotel rooms
  • 196,882-square-feet of retail space
  • 98,040-square-feet of office space
  • 30-slip marina

G.T. McDonald is the contractor.

Thankfully, there’s something called zoning and comprehensive planning that doesn’t allow construction west of I-95 into Southside and Conch Hill at such heights to look like f-ing Houston. Keep the Little Havana area low- to mid-rise until there’s demand for West Brickell, which is mostly mid-rise anyway, to redevelop more high-rise.

Very silly.
Demand should dictate heights and not rules

One of the towers has the same concept as the Waldorf Astoria Tower.

This lot is so crucial to connecting Brickell with Little Havana. Can’t wait for the riverwalk to extend from the Underline to Jose Marti Park!

To really connect Little Havana to Brickell, and connect all of Downtown for that matter,I95 should be torn down from the 836 south..

I’d rather See Little Havana get torn down than that much needed interstate. Traffic would be constant surface street gridlock without it.

Let me guess, you want Metromover extended to all ends of the county, which would ruin streets and create border vacuums the same as way I-95 flyovers.

So they’re building the tower furthest from the river on the corner of 6th street and 3rd avenue first or is the pin they put for the lot just deceiving?

Fact 1. You are fools
Fact 2. Your friends are fools
Fact 3. Folks who live in Miami think other things. They are struggling with high rents and low pay. None of these comments yet show a true reflection of the what they care about. Pin&@

This site promotes new mid to high end condo and apartment projects—it’s not the market for broke paycheck to paycheck people. What are you thinking?

For whining and self-pity, check out Twitter or Facebook.
