The FAA has determined the structures may rise 472-feet and 500-feet above sea level as they will not have any substantial adverse effects on the navigable airspace. The development will give way to a pair of rental towers yielding over 700 units of 42 and 45 stories designed by NBWW Architects and developed by Nitin and Dev Motwani’s Merrimac Ventures.
