Plans For 750-Foot Tower On Biscayne Boulevard Submitted To FAA

An application was submitted to the Federal Aviation Administration last month to build a 750-foot apartment tower at 400 Biscayne Boulevard.

According to the filing, the the building would top off at 740 feet above ground, or 750 feet above sea level. The application was submitted on June 12.

The FAA filing is one of several steps that developers PMG and Greybrook are taking to prepare for groundbreaking.

Last week, a Declaration of Restrictive Covenant in Lieu of Unity of Title was recorded with the county for the property, after being filed with the city. It allows the developers to obtain a construction permit.

Also last month, a partnership between developers PMG and Greybrook secured utilities from Miami-Dade County for 704 apartment units to be built at the site.

If built at 740 feet, it would become one of the top five tallest buildings in Miami, surpassing the under-construction One Thousand Museum tower.

 

Miami’s tallest buildings as of July 2018:

  • Panorama Tower (868 feet)
  • Four Seasons (789 feet)
  • Southeast Financial Center (765 feet)
  • One Thousand Museum (706 feet)

Yes, because all the people who will fork over millions of dollars to live there, also have enough money to buy a car, and no, they will not take public transportation.

When you say public transportation, are you referring to the super modern calle 8 trolleys?

They could have at least lined the podium with residential units or office.

If MDC Wolfson sold their surface lots more development would come to the area. They’re basically like Mana and haven’t cleaned up the old federal courthouse yet and about to get the fire station which they will sit on for years to come.

Imagine a Brickell City Centre style development using ALL of the Wolfson campus lots with new classroom and office space built into the project. Hire some economic development people to get companies to take advantage of the programs offered in the college and make it a useful space within downtown.

I’m done dreaming. This is a wonderful project and looks beautiful!

What the hell is this?
This design is the best you can come up with for such a great area?? Jesus Christ – Just google Dubai or Shanghai, can’t you at least try to design something that remotely looks iconic? It’s Biscayne Blvd for crying out loud not Sawgrass.

Shanghai has hundreds of concrete boxes in their skyline, you all crack me up with using shanghai as example. And Dubai got their skyline from ultra dirt cheap labor.

everyone is contractor and designer. Why does every building have to be described as “iconic.”

Are you a first grader? or just slow? Who said anything about making every building iconic? My point is that this is Biscayne Blvd right in Downtown and this is the best they can come up with? We have a ton of rectangular boxes just like all the major cities in the world and that is fine for the infill but it is now time to be a little creative. Just like they have been in Dubai and Shanghai.

Never mind how they got it, the point is, they have many iconic designs in their skyline. Buildings that are memorable and identifies that city. The same way the Chrysler building identifies NY. Not a bunch of flat tops.

Realize this dude, in age Miami is still just a baby compared to those cities you mentioned and Dubai doesn’t have to deal with all the red tape in local government like developers have to in Miami.

It looks messy and cheap, like ninety-nine percent of all architecture following this terrible excuse of a gimmick.
