The Federal Aviation Administration issued height approval this morning for one of the construction cranes that will help build Miami’s 100-story Waldorf Astoria supertall tower.
Tower crane #3 is approved at a height of 365 feet above ground level, or 376 feet above sea level, according to a letter sent to Moriarty Construction today.
Two other tower cranes are planned to rise 1255 above ground level, or 1266 feet above sea level, according to separate FAA filings.
The FAA filings were made on May 31.
A work schedule for the cranes is estimated to run from October 24, 2023 to August 23, 2027, the filings state.
In 2021, the FAA approved a permanent height for the Waldorf Astoria of 1038 feet above ground, or 1049 feet above sea level.
Construction at the site is already underway. A groundbreaking ceremony took place in October 2022.
