The Federal Aviation Administration has approved a plan to install two temporary tower cranes to assist with construction at the 1 Southside Park megaproject.
Approval was issued by the agency on March 15.
According to a letter sent to the developer, two cranes are permitted to rise up to 891 feet and 834 feet.
The permanent height of the tower is planned to be 62 stories – 754 feet above ground, or 766 feet above sea level.
Foundation work is already underway.
