YotelPad Submitted To FAA At 341 Feet Above Ground, Construction Permit Pending

The developers of YotelPad have applied to the Federal Aviation Administration for permission to build their hotel and condo project.

According to the application, the 30-story tower will rise 341 feet above ground, or 351 feet above sea level.

A parking garage is not included in the plans.

City records show that a demolition permit to clear the site was applied for last month, as was a permit to install fencing. A construction permit to begin foundation work was applied for in January, but hasn’t yet been approved.

Buyers of the Yotelpad units will be permitted to rent the units on short term rental sites like Airbnb with no restrictions.

Miami’s Aria Development Group and Kuwait’s Aqarat are the developers.

Looks like something out of a futuristic film noir and Loft 3 would be another great infill if Wolfson sold that surface parking lot.

These new renderings look great! Very nice complimentary building to Loft 1, Loft 2, and Vizcayne. I was previously a bit nervous of the building due to the tight constraints on the site, but it looks well thought out.

I heard these guys were updating the space under the metro mover, in this render, it just looks like it is all paved over. Maybe think about some more green space?

Very solid addition. Love that it avoids the generic never-ending balcony look.

I thought the same when I read that, I guess they spend up when their palms are greased.

341 feet!? Why does the FAA need to get involved, sspecially when there are taller buildings right next door? Seems like the FAA is wielding entirely too much power.

If an aircraft is buzzing by at 341 feet, something has gone very wrong.

Club 50? I think it was rebranded recently and closed for about a year for renovations. But I could be totally off and I also dont know currently it’s status.

thats what the rooms feel like if you have ever paid to stay in on at Heathrow… wonder why they would want that downtown – though could have hourly rooms like at the airport where people turn tricks – the yotel motel…

What are you talking about? In the previous renderings, it literally did look like a jail with cheap and nasty unaligned windows. Quite the improvement here, and hopefully calls for quality stone and materials.
