UM Gets FAA Approval For 310-Foot Health District Tower

The Federal Aviation Administration has approved the height of an upcoming tower planned by the University of Miami.

The new tower is approved at a height of 306 feet above ground, or 310 feet above sea level, according to the February 1 approval letter.

The project site is listed as 1099 NW 14th Street.

UM is planning to build Project Ignite on the site, which will allow the Miller School of Medicine to consolidate teaching facilities from 17 facilities into one. The building is expected to cost hundreds of millions of dollars

It’s so true. You end up talking to some outcall center that doesn’t speak English but knows enough to deny coverage and bill you for mistakes and the doctors code everything wrong to get more money, or don’t know what the codes mean. Get rid of these codes.

I’ll keep our scam. I lived in Spain, where technically it is free, although it is not, they tax you to death for it, and had to wait a year and four months to have surgery.

The USA has the ability to get enough tax money to pay for everyone’s health expenses multiple times over and yet we throw it away – completely unaudited and largely wasted – into the military industrial complex. I, for one, will not “keep that”. It’s a joke. Prefer your private insurance? Go for it! Take out a plan. But we need a public option for citizens at a minimum. The two are not mutually exclusive.

Thank you former President Shalala for your vision and investments into UHealth. Incredible to see how much better healthcare facilities around the area have gotten the last 15 years.

This is far enough from the airport that 150 m would hardly be pushing it extrapolating from 200 meter Edgewater back to runway trajectory.
FAA approval is always required but 100 meters isn’t pushing it for civic center.

The U wasn’t about to get wacked and forget about where that garbage came from.

MDC needs to do something like this on the site of the Wolfson campus, and sell all their surrounding holdings to pay for it.
