The Federal Aviation Administration has just given the green light to two towers on Brickell Key proposed by Swire Properties.
According to a letter issued this morning (June 22), the towers have been determined to not be a hazard to air navigation.
Tower 1 is approved up to height of 1,044 feet above ground, or 1,049 feet above sea level.
Tower 2 is approved up to height of 691 feet above ground, or 700 feet above sea level.
The approved heights appear taller than what may actually be built.
Earlier this month, Swire announced plans for a two-tower project called One Island Drive.
The towers will be “architecturally spectacular,” designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, Swire said.
The taller tower will be called The Residences at Mandarin Oriental, Miami and rise over 800 feet, with 220 residential units, the announcement said.
The second tower will be a Mandarin Oriental hotel, rising approximately 400 feet. It will include 151 guest rooms, 61 private residences and 28 hotel residences.
Sales will launch in late 2023.
