Developer Tibor Hollo Dies At 96

Developer Tibor Hollo has died, according to the Herald.

The Hungarian-born Hollo was one of the first to develop Miami’s urban core in a big way, with projects including the Omni mall and multiple surrounding towers.

Brickell’s 85-story Panorama Tower, which is currently the tallest building in Miami, was built by Hollo’s Florida East Coast Realty when he was in his late 80s.

Florida East Coast Realty recently sold 1201 Brickell Bay Drive for $363 million, where billionaire Ken Griffin is planning a supertall tower.

The company is also in the process of demolition at One Bayfront Plaza, where another supertall tower is planned.

I worked for Mr. Hollo nearly 40 years ago when he owned the Eden Roc. He was very good to me, always very kind. May he rest in peace. He will be missed.

EVERYONE. PLEASE READ THE HISTORY OF MR TIBOR HOLLO. He was an incredible man. I had the pleasure to greet him & chat with him twice this past year. The company offices are in their building in front of Panorama. I asked Mr Hallo, why are you here? He said I’m working , why not! There’s a traffic light , and turn into the Panorama Brickell ave entrance. At both Brickell north & south lanes. It would be so respectful to call the little strip of street TIBOR HALLO WAY.
ALSO. I HOPE & WOULD ASSUME , that the family & company will put an honorary plaque on the building. In his memory. Mr Hallo built so much in Miami . And Panorama Tower! Is the tallest residential tower south of Manhattan.

Experiencing both sadness and appreciation for the trailblazer who set the path for others, I recently discovered that Aston Martin is now the tallest residential building south of New York City. It’s a meaningful reminder of the lasting impact his work has on us all as we strive to carry his legacy forward. Honoring him at Tibor and Sheila Hollo Park ensures that his memory will be commemorated by many as Miami continues to grow, paying tribute to those, like him, who helped pave the way.

We can only hope his legacy is honored, and what was started is finished, i.e. OBP.
