One Bayfront Plaza Approved By Federal Aviation Administration At 92 Stories & 1,049 Feet (Again)

Downtown Miami’s 92-story One Bayfront Plaza tower has been approved to be built by the Federal Aviation Administration – for a second time.

In a ruling issued on January 7, the agency said the tower can be built up to 1,044 feet above ground, or 1,049 feet above sea level.

Review by the FAA took 16 months, after a September 2018 application.

In the application, representatives of the developer reminded the FAA that the agency had previously approved a 1,049-foot height in 2016. That approval had expired, and the developer wrote that they wanted re-approval as they were close to breaking ground.

Developer Florida East Coast Realty was also approved by the FAA in 2016 for a 1,049-foot tower at 1201 Brickell Bay Drive, known as The Towers by Foster and Partners. That approval expired in October 2019.

One Bayfront Plaza was approved in 2017 by city planners to include residences, hotel, office, and retail space.

There doesn’t appear to be any pending construction or demolition permit filed with Miami’s Building Department for One Bayfront Plaza, so work is unlikely to begin imminently.

I still think the old design is better.

Shawn Kouri

Yes. Come on. I even did a whole video on buildings that are supposed to come to Miami between 2020 and 2025. This was one of them. They said that they were supposed to break ground in 2019 with completion in 2021 or 2022. The developer needs to file for a construction permit because this thing has to be built. Somebody has to reach out to Tibor Hallo and start construction on this thing. They can keep the current renderings, but since there is already an oversupply of condominiums, One Bayfront Plaza should be hotels and offices only. The developer of One Bayfront Plaza should break ground this year in 2020 and have it completed by the time frame between 2022 and 2024.

I prefer “wake me up when drawings are done”

Shawn Kouri

Oh they better break ground.

Shawn Kouri

I’ll come on. It’s already been four years and they still haven’t broken ground. Tell the developer to start construction already.

“That approval had expired, and the developer wrote that they wanted re-approval as they were close to breaking ground.” BWWWAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAA

They have to fill up their ugly and overpriced Panorama Tower first…

Shawn Kouri

They don’t have to do that. Anyway didn’t they already fill up the tower’s units? So what is the deal?

This project was originally proposed in 2007. I crap you negative. 2007. Still not even a demo permit on the building on site. Maybe they’re waiting for the next recession. This project is as dead as Kelsey’s nuts.

Totally agree
This won’t happen.
It’s unfortunate though

Git er done!!

Shawn Kouri

Yes! Come on! By the way, this was supposed to be completed before 2020.

Go Miami go!

Build it soon.
Keep building tall and taller buildings.

Shawn Kouri

Go Miami Go, you do have a good point. Somebody has to reach out to the developer of this building, hurry up, and start construction on this thing. Hotels and offices. No condos though.

Pie in the Sky…..

Ohhhhhhhhhhh yeah!!!!!!!! It’s Miami’s own Wmpire State Building. This was a part of the $ 10 Billion mile. This thing must be built.

This is never going to get built.

At least Ross is going to move so maybe it will happen.

The office tower next door that would have to be torn down for this proposal is still actively leasing office space.

Quite easy to terminate leases, but not tear down a sixty-year-old building riddled with asbestos.

It is NOT easy to terminate leases unless you have a redevelopment clause to do so. Ask Perez and how easy the Capital Grille “lease termination” talks went. They missed a cycle.

Anonymous

No it isn’t. Ever leased property before???

Cool proposal but it’s not happening.

OMG just like NYC. Bahhhahaha

Do you usually laugh at your own jokes?

At the rate they are going, this tower won’t be completed until probably 2030!

Miami will be under water by then.

…and Pence will be in his second-term midterm.

Shawn Kouri

Oh for sure! If not 2040 or 2050 as far as when Miami would be underwater due to climate change.

Don’t take this personally Shawn but you’re full of shit

Shawn Kouri

With climate change, this needs to be built sooner than that.
