444 Brickell Gets FAA Approval For A Height Of 881 Feet; Developer Buys School Seats

Related Group has been granted Federal Aviation Administration approval to build three towers at 444 Brickell – and has inked a deal to ensure there is school capacity for the building’s new residents.

Two of the towers are the tallest approved by the FAA in Miami this year – and one of the buildings would be taller than any ever built in Miami.

However, one tower in the complex has been reduced in height from an earlier plan for the property submitted six years ago.

Here are the three new approved heights:

  • One Brickell, Tower I (550 feet above ground, 554 feet above sea level)
  • One Brickell, Tower II (828 feet above ground, 832 feet above sea level)
  • One Brickell, Tower III (877 feet above ground, 881 feet above sea level)

The proposed height for the first tower is 81 feet below what it was originally proposed at. In 2014 it was planned at 639 feet above sea level, or 635 feet above ground.

The FAA approval was granted on July 20, with the application submitted on March 4. The FAA previously approved the three-tower complex in 2015, but approval expired.

A deal with the Miami-Dade School Board was also recorded last month. Related must pay $519,992 to the school board  within 30 days of the deal being recorded to make up for a lack of school seats in the area created by adding 1,400 new residential units.

A demolition permit for a four story building on the property is active. The BG Group is approved to take down the building at an estimated cost of $375,313, the permit states.
