Construction Begins At Panorama Tower, Miami’s Tallest Yet

Piling installation began today for Tibor Hollo’s 82-story Panorama Tower at 1101 Brickell Avenue.

Florida East Coast Realty, Hollo’s development company, obtained a phased construction permit late last month. The value of the unfinished structure is listed at $150 million.

Panorama will become Miami’s tallest building at 830 feet above sea level (822 feet above ground), the maximum permitted by the FAA for the site.

The massive project will include:

  • 208 hotel rooms
  • 821 rental apartments
  • 100,000 square feet of medical office space
  • 50,000 square feet of retail
  • 2,000 space parking garage
  • An observation deck on the top floor

Moshe Cosicher, an FECR employee, is the architect of record. Kobi Karp is the design architect. Completion is scheduled for mid-2017.

When have you ever been satisfied with a rendering?

I actually have been satisfied with most renderings. But this building will be the tallest in Miami and should be visually pleasing.

Well at least it won’t be the tallest for long as soon as Swire get their 1,000 footer going.

What a BORING design! A real shame as it will be such a tall tower on the Miami skyline.

Let’s hope it’s run better than his last project, Opera Tower, which is a disaster.

I know… I wish is was a more glassy design. Would’ve been nice to make it look like a real downtown looking building.

I wish architects educate themselves and the public, think beyond inappropriate and boring date palms or any palm…what’s natural to Florida is all going extinct.

The City of Miami Needs something Bigger and Way more Picturesque. How is Miami supposed to be compared to other city skylines if we do not change the architecture?! In addition, the FAA Needs to take a chill people because it poisons my body to see that the city of Miami still doesn’t have a 1,000 Foot Skyscraper! We need to have some changes! We need to remove Tomas Regalado as mayor here in Miami and get a Mayor that can actually speak English good and NOT Cuban style like Tomas!

Good to know others think he should learn better English. Also hes quite a boring guy to be the Mayor of Miami.

He should speak English as “well’ as you do, NOT so good !

I guess it’s not worse than the Plaza next door – that’s the kindest thing I can say about this thing.
Hollo’s buildings are not much better than Melo’s, so I am not holding my breath.

Hollo’s buildings are boring and don’t have any panache to them. These architects should take a field trip to Dubai, Singapore or Shanghai to see where architecture can go. In order for a building to stand out, it should have a crown. Nobody is thinking about this in Miami. Although, I also don’t agree with the FAA on their stupid height ceiling, it’s not about height folks, it’s about a building with a crown. I much prefer a finished looking building standing at 700 feet than one with 1000 ft with a room for the AC unit on top.

It is very sad that this work will be a visual bore. Worse than that, it’s height will force us to look at it. Mr. Hollo. Stop what you are doing and get a design.
