Yes. Unfortunately portions of downtown Miami are in the airport landing approach so they jurisdiction over building heights.

This is a good shot for showing downtown Miami in relation to Miami International Airport.

Terrific shot, but that's not a good spot for the airport. Edmonton recently closed its city airport and now they're seeing $5 billion+ of development proposed in the downtown. Edmonton's current tallest is only 149m but with the airport gone they're building a 220m hotel and a 257m office building.

I'm not sure if moving MIA would work out as well as it has for Edmonton. It would be a logistical nightmare for sure. Miami gets more international air traffic than any other U.S. city outside of New York. There is also a healthy air freight industry. Then, we have the environmentalists who will scream all bloody hell if we move the airport anywhere near the Everglades. It would just be a lot more complicated than it seems for Miami to move the airport.

To answer your question about the Signature Tower, I quote the following statement from Agung R. Prabowo, Director of Danayasa Arthatama Tbk (SCBD / Sudirman Central Business District), the owner of Signature Tower, in a latest news related to it.
................. (translated from Bahasa Indonesia).......
"In addition, because there has never been such a massive development in Indonesia, on the licensing terms, a lot of new rules that arise and need to be reviewed for eligibility super-highrise buildings," said Agung.

Nevertheless, the company remains optimistic the building that is planned to be as high as 100 floors can be started in the near future.

Agree, it's not likely. Btw, Edmonton's airport wasn't moved. The smaller city airport closed but they already had a much bigger main airport on the outskirts. As you can see, it wasn't the headache that closing MIA would be.

There are plenty of "quality" buildings in Jakarta.
