The Federal Aviation Administration has approved the planned height of six Miami condo towers, all by the Related Group, that the agency had earlier said needed “further study.” The agency did not ask the developer to reduce their size.

Related is planning three towers each at two downtown sites.

One Brickell, at 444 Brickell Ave., has been approved for three towers with heights of 881 feet, 832 feet and 639 feet above sea level, after the FAA ruled that the buildings would have “no substantial adverse effect” on aircraft in the area.

Auberge Residences, at 1400 Biscayne Blvd., also got the green light for two towers at 649 feet and one tower at 533 feet.

The FAA ruled in early September that it needed more time to review the projects in order to ensure they would not interfere with local flights. At the time it said that neither project should exceed 470 feet.
