Tower To Replace Burger King Across From Brickell City Centre Resubmitted To FAA At 960 Feet

The owners of the Burger King property across from Brickell City Centre have applied for Federal Aviation Administration approval to build a 960 foot tower.

The application lists a height of 953 feet above ground, or 960 feet above sea level.

FAA approval was granted for an identical height in 2016, but is set to expire in November.

In 2017, city approval for a 78-story tower called “18” was granted. It is planned to include four stories of retail at the base, with the upper levels to include 392 residential units, in a tower designed by Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates.

NBWW said the tower would be among “the most architecturally-compelling structures to rise in downtown Miami.”

Owner Karam Group later listed the property for sale. Claro Development was managing the development process for the new tower.

A strip mall including the Burger King is currently on the site, along with perhaps one of the most lucrative parking lots in Miami, where cars are regularly booted after their owners leave to shop elsewhere in Brickell (and then forced to pay a fine).

Space in the strip mall is still listed as available for rent as of this month on real estate website Loopnet.
