Plans Call For Brickell Flatiron To Rise 731-Feet; Marriott World Expo Center Goes For 640-Feet

Developers have submitted plans to the FAA for two towers in the downtown area.

Brickell Flatiron is proposed to rise to a height of 731-feet above ground level, or 737-feet above sea level. Only two towers in Florida currently exceed that height – the 789-foot Four Seasons in Brickell, and the 764-foot Southeast Financial Center in downtown Miami.

Construction on Brickell Flatiron is proposed to begin on February 15, although that could change.

MDM Development’s 1,800 room Marriott World Expo Center is proposed to rise to a height of 640-feet above ground (or 653-feet above sea level). Construction is expected imminently .

The developers also recently filed plans with local authorities showing that a 1,400 seat theater will be built within the World Expo Center (more on this to come).
