Plans Submitted To FAA For Miami’s Northernmost 600-Foot Tower

An application has been filed with the Federal Aviation Administration to build a 649-foot tower in Edgewater, marking a northward expansion of Miami’s skyline.

The new tower would become the northernmost 600-foot tower within City of Miami limits (there are towers at that height in Sunny Isles.)

The new tower is proposed on Aimco’s property next to Hamilton on the Bay.

It is proposed to rise 646 feet above ground, or 649 feet above sea level – the maximum permitted by the FAA in the area.

Aimco recently said the new Edgewater project could include two luxury apartment towers, a baywalk extension, a public park, and the closure of 34th Street.

The application was filed with the FAA on December 1.

Update: Aimco has revealed more details of their plan for the area.

The developer plans a 15,000 square foot public pedestrian plaza directly on the waterfront with open spaces on both sides, and a restaurant on the plaza in the new tower.

A new public baywalk is part of the plans. There will also be an amphitheater, linear park and a kayak launch.

The new tower will have 241 apartments.

Aimco says the goal is to build a livable, walkable neighborhood. The developer wants to close the NE 34th Street street-end in order to build the plaza.

Approval can be done “through a series of minor approvals, which are mostly administrative in nature precisely because the project has been designed to deliver on the City’s land use goals and objectives,” the developer said in a statement.

Glad to see that height in Edgewater but really, the architecture design is lackluster.

I know, I’m all for development and high-rises, but our skyline is becoming pretty repetitive, boring and we can’t undo that

If you mean lining streets up with parking garages and doing minimal infrastructure improvements causing the roads to flood on any given summer afternoon show, then where have you been the last ten years?

Correct….all of the people living between the waterfront and Biscayne Blvd need the streets in order to do their DIY oil changes and fix their cars.

The taller tower closest to the bay is aight and I love the stone base. However, the other tower with Tetris windows? Yuck.

So dull and uninspiring. Are we still in the 80’s!? Do people even like their architecture work anymore? Try harder! My seven-year-old can do a better job!

Love it!

Now take the skyline on the other side of 195 and Biscayne Blvd a few blocks north.

The curves at Northeast 38th and 39th Street could make a nice round tower as a great bookend.
