Santander, of course, is a Spanish bank and so intimately involved in the Club Med/Euro mess. The bank itself is probably in much better financial shape than the Spanish government (in part due to its extensive business in Latin America), but it is an open question what effect a government debt crisis might have on them (would the government try to force them to loan it money?) Furthermore, it surely wouldn't be surprising to see them pulling in their horns a little right now and, perhaps, putting projects like this building on hold until Europe sorts itself out.

Well, of course, there's plenty of good news this morning on the "Europe sorting itself out" front. I still think Santander may find it prudent to be cautious though.

another design proposal for Banco Santander



Here is another new design proposal that has just surfaced with few details except for what is stated. I imagine it's from KPF & plinko was spot on his floor counts with the 60 floors and 840 foot height estimate.
This is certainly a lot better design compared to that 12 story monstrous garage that was supposed to front Brickell Avenue that Dylan posted!
Now we get an open plaza facing Brickell and the building sits on a diagonal in relation to the Espirito Santos on the left & the Four Seasons tower on the right.

This one might be coming back from the dead. The bank has bought a Miami bank branch, and is keeping their options open. They purchased BNP Paribas

Banco Santander wants to keep their options open. They're seeking an extension to the FAA's 2010 determination that the tower would not be a hazard to air navigation. Before being put on hold, the tower had more than a few crazy .....

Seems like they are seeking approval to increase the height to 950 feet now. It would be cool if they shot for another extra 50 feet and make it an even 1,000 footer. Hopefully they will build it.

Santander Bank Tower At 1401 Brickell Cut To Size After Feds Warn

Quote:
Santander Bank’s planned office tower at 1401 Brickell Avenue has been reduced in height to 844 feet after the FAA warned that a previously approved height for a taller building could affect flights from MIA.

In 2010, the FAA had approved a tower at the site that would be built at 950 feet above ground level, and that approval was later extended for a year. The approval expired after Santander postponed construction due to the economic crisis in Europe (Santander is the largest bank in the Eurozone).

Last May, Santander filed a request with the FAA to once again approve a tower up to a height of 950 feet. The feds reviewed the request and warned Santander that the height exceeded obstruction standards. Subsequently, Santander agreed to reduce the height of the building to 844 feet above ground level ‘in the interest of aviation safety and in being a good neighbor’, according to a letter sent to the FAA.

The newly reduced 844-foot height was approved yesterday by the FAA and expires in October 2015.

I think this is old news but still nice to see another tallest underway in Miami.

I believe the two 1000 footers planned are likely to be approved though, how on earth would they not "affect the flight path?"

The FAA is freaking dumb

I believe they actually did get approved which is great news. The FAA did approve this tower but not at the height the developer wanted, but they have made an agreement to make it 844 FT. This project is essentially ready pretty much. Just a matter of tenants and financing.

The Bank is considering a move to Miami too so I would imagine this tower will be good when it comes to tenants. Plus, the demand in Miami is great. I was just reading a article on how there is a shortage of office space. Which in retrospect, means more towers!

This building is located farther south closer to the flight paths from MIA.

Banco Santander Brickell Avenue Site Listed, 80 Stories Permitted



Quote:
Up for sale: the Prime Banco Santander property at 1401 Brickell Avenue.

The Spanish bank once wanted to build a 950-foot tall Americas headquarters tower on the site, but those plans were cancelled in 2008 with the worldwide recession.

Santander held a design competition for their new Brickell Avenue Headquarters tower, with entries from KPF, SOM, Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and others. The KPF design won.

The FAA initially approved the 950-foot building height, but cut it to 844 feet in 2014 when a new approval was requested.

A call for offers on the property is due November 1.

Remember that vision for Sky City 1000 in Tokyo? This looks like a miniature version of that. I like it.

It looks almost 400 meters tall compared with the Four Seasons. As for the design... it's interesting, I suppose.
