The developer Swire Properties originally wanted to build the new skyscraper up to a height of 1,111 feet above sea level. However, after negotiation with the Federal Aviation Administration, the company settled for 1,049 feet. After studying the proposal for twenty months, the FAA finally approved the height of the new development and they said that it won’t endanger airplanes flying to and from Miami International Airport. Miami-Dade County’s Aviation Department is also expected to approve the building’s height.

The One Brickell City Centre would be taller than Manhattan Building and even taller than the 789-feet Four Season Hotel&Tower which is currently the tallest one in Miami with its 70 stories.

The Eastern National Bank building at 799 Brickell Ave. and the one of the former Northern Trust Bank at 700 Brickel Ave. are going to be demolished to make room for the new development. They reportedly combine land that cost more than $13million and another site next door bought by the project developer for more than $64 million.

The project will feature a luxury shopping center, two residential towers, office space, condos, a five-star hotel and a $20 million innovative wellness center Climate Ribbon.

The Brickell City Centre is likely to become the most anticipated real estate project in the region and it is currently half sold. The prices for a one-bedroom unit start from $580,000. Two-bedrooms range from $700,000 to $1million. As you can see, you don’t have to be a millionaire to live there.
