Buildings are getting taller and taller in Miami, and the Federal Aviation Administration is stepping in to place height limits on projects east of Miami International Airport. DBR reports the 1010 shell as it is referred to, allows buildings to be as tall as 1,010 feet above sea level. According to Dade county’s chief of aviation planning Ammad Riaz, there are projects half as tall as current buildings being rejected that the FAA considers potentially hazardous to aviation safety and the reasons are unknown. Their next step is to reveal why some projects in downtown Brickell were allowed to go over the new FAA limit of 475 feet.
