The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has given developers Gazit Horizons and Atlantic Pacific Companies the green light for Brickell Gateway, a 61-story mixed-use skyscraper set to rise at 90 Southwest 8th Street in Miami’s bustling Brickell neighborhood. Designed by Corwil Architects, the development will encompass a total area of 933,209 square feet. This inclusive space will house a variety of features, including 504 multifamily residential units and 18,287 square feet of retail space at ground level. Internalized parking facilities will cater to 348 vehicles. The residential units will span a range of sizes, from cozy studios to spacious three-bedroom layouts, covering an area of 493 to 1,328 square feet. The development will offer a well-rounded living experience, including enticing rooftop amenities such as a pool deck with covered terraces, grilling spots, and inviting dining areas.
A more in-depth analysis of the five approved building permits for Brickell Gateway unveils that the FAA has determined that the structure would not significantly impact the safe and efficient utilization of navigable airspace by aircraft or the operation of air navigation facilities. With the ability to rise to a height of 761 feet, or 772 feet above mean sea level owing to the 11-foot site elevation, the structure has been thoroughly reviewed, and this process was concluded on August 23. These permits are set to expire on February 23, 2025, indicating that the developers are poised to embark on construction shortly, especially considering that the site is now cleared and primed for groundbreaking.
BG Group LLC finalized the demolition work for the former structure that once occupied the 0.49-acre development site at the southeast corner of Southwest 8th Street and Southwest 1st Avenue late last year.
