Estates at Acqualina developer Jules Trump is requesting Federal Aviation Administration approval to build at 700 feet above sea level, or 692 feet above ground.
The application was submitted last week.
If approved at that height, it would be taller than any other building in the city.
In September 2014, the developer applied for approval of a 649-foot tower height at the site, and approval was granted in June 2015 after ten months of review. An extension was granted that required construction to begin by Jun 2018, and the developer notified the FAA in May 2018 that construction would begin in June using the previous approval.
Sunny Isles Beach has a skyline full of 649-foot towers, which is the maximum the FAA has permitted until now for the city (there is no city-imposed height limit). The city is in the path of the Opa Locka Executive Airport runway.
