More Miami Worldcenter: FAA Application Submitted For Naftali Group Site

Developers appear to be moving forward with plans to bring additional towers to Miami Worldcenter, with a new height approval request just filed with the Federal Aviation Administration.

The latest application is for the Naftali Group site at Miami Worldcenter.

According to the September 19 filing, developers plan to build up to a height of 684 feet above ground, or 691 feet above sea level at the property.

Naftali Group purchased the property in March for for $40.5 million.

A sales center for Paramount Miami Worldcenter previously operated from the site.

According to the March press release from Naftali, condo sales were planned to begin before the end of this year. Twin towers were being planned for the site, Naftali said at the time.

I was confused when they announced supertalls for this location. Kind of an embarrassing oversight for Naftali to put out that press release meanwhile this area is zoned for a max of 750′ or something like that.

Do some research on this developer and you’ll see this is par for the course for them. They haven’t done a great job on entering the Miami market and getting along with others.

Looks like One Thousand Museum dwellers have to kiss those sunset views goodbye

A whole city is going to be built west of that building. They knew it was a temporary view when they purchased.

Something tells me they’ll be fine. They can use their dollars to wipe away their tears.

Never expected these to be true supertalls. But at least its Naftali so we can expect a stunning design if their NYC portfolio is any indication. Hopefully as nice or maybe better than RAMSA’s St Regis Residences in South Brickell.

Agreed 1000% we need more inspiring towers than Paramount and Legacy for MWC, as consistent with original visions.

Didn’t they want a 1000+ft here?

not possible under current FAA regulations. Most of World Center is restricted to a cap of 699ft. Okan Tower is the one exception in the area though it might barely fit into the stretch of Downtown and Brickell where 1000ft is allowed.

Baffling that the developer boasted about two supertalls in an official press release…who shells out tens of millions of dollars for property without even knowing the zoning / FAA regulations?

Is 7′ above sea level enough?
