For those of you wondering what is happening with this project, we have an UPDATE!!!

https://www.thenextmiami.com/faa-grants-approval-for-831-foot-tower-in-downtown-miami-replacing-parking-lot/
(Scroll to the bottom of the article)

"Also yesterday, the FAA approved a 706-foot for Skyplex in Orlando. The $500 million amusement tower will have the tallest roller coaster in the world, and is being built by Miami developer Joshua Wallack."

Glad to hear they received FAA approval, that's an important step. I really hope this thing gets built but I'll be skeptical until it actually goes vertical.

If it does get built it will be a must stop for sure.

That's awesome! Glad they got the approval! Is this the last barrier to beginning construction?

Wouldn’t that height just be the tower height, plus the “radio antenna” on top of it?
