Planned Apartment Tower Gets FAA Approval For Permanent Height Of 444 Feet

The FAA has issued height approvals for an Edgewater apartment tower that will soon begin construction.

The 42-story rental apartment tower is planned at 1775 Biscayne Boulevard.

The FAA issued approval on April 1 for a permanent height of 444 feet above ground, of 448 feet above sea level.

The agency also approved two tower cranes at a temporary height of 541 feet above ground, of 545 feet above sea level. The cranes are estimated to be in place for around 19 months.

A master construction permit for the new tower is in review by Miami’s Building Department, as is a phased vertical permit. A site work permit has been applied for but not yet entered the review process.

Coastal Construction is the contractor for all of the permits.

 

The tower is planned to include:

  • 544 rental apartments
  • 10,106 square feet of ground-floor retail
  • 628-space parking garage

ODP is the architect.

More condos up and up which means more miserable traffic in this city.

Glad to see efforts to place balconies in a pattern and not so random.

Looks completely random.

Yes, probably one of the worst I’ve seen since the 2010s. IDK why this is a thing, because it’s not playful or edgy, only makes the building look cheap and nasty.

why would they approve a building with a parking podium that looks like a federal prison?

But they added fake windows – isn’t that supposed to make it automatically amazing???

I actually think it’s a good design for the area. It will compliment all the projects around it and bring much needed density.

Terrible looking building for such a prominent location.

Agree! As a very nearby neighbor, my only hope is that the rents are high enough to attract desirable tenants. We don’t need another Opera Tower situation in this vicinity.

The original article states the screen will be custom art installation

Still doesn’t excuse the horrendous, irregular balcony and ledge placement.

The same reason they approved Downtown 5th, they are blind.
