FAA Approves Supertall At 1201 Brickell Bay Drive

 

The FAA has approved a plan to build Miami’s tallest tower at 1201 Brickell Bay Drive.

FAA officials have been studying the plan to build a supertall tower since January. Yesterday, after an eight month review process, the proposed height was approved.

With the new approval, the developers of the project can build up to 1,044 feet above ground, or 1,049 feet above sea level.

Tibor Hollo is partnering with New York’s Corigin Real Estate Group and former L.A. Dodgers owner Frank McCourt’s MG Properties to develope the project.

Lol, Hollo is trying to ensure that his legacy is to have the tallest towers in Miami between 1101 brickell, 1 bayfront, and now the former Villa Magna site…..awesome, wish he would spend a bit more on the designs though.

Awesome height but horrible design

Wouldn’t it be nice if they hire BIG, or other top notch architectural firm to design the towers (or tower). Instead is going to be another plain tower on top of a gigantic podium (Panorama Tower).

This is the most desirable remaining land in Brickell, the new hottest neighborhood of Miami. They need a starchitect for this project. Since this is the last empty waterfront land in Brickell, with good marketing they could ask for prices never asked before.

True, this could easily be more iconic than ‘Icon’ and more exclusive than ‘Jade’. They need to incorporate high end restaurants and a fancy hotel brand.

Brickell is fast becoming the city of twin towers. Infinity and SLS are almost identical, Brickell Height 1 and 2, now this project, and the CCCC twin towers formerly known as Capital Brickell. It’s going to be a very interesting skyline in a few years.

That is an old design. The new design by Foster and Partners is much more architecturally appealing.

Hey look, another massive parking podium! You can’t complain about traffic if you buy in Brickell. If every unit has two cars it’s pretty clear they’ll be traffic on the limited grid.

Horrible Design. Good luck with pre set sales requirement in this soften market..

Tall is cool, but does it like, HAVE TO be offensively ugly? Seriously could they just start copying 80s condos if they’re gonna build concrete lumps? At least they had some spirit of modernism. This trash is just a self-storage with windows.

Panorama is a dump too. Everything Hollo has built has been awful. Everything in Omni is horrible at street level and inside. I guess at least this attempts to conceal the parking so the neighbors don’t have views of cars behind bars.

Agreed Panorama is just garbage looking.

Agree, …the Atlantis , the imperial, villa Regina the palace…. Great architecture that define an era gone now….. When architectonica created great designs and the apartments were decent size and with materials of good quality!!!
Modernism, Postmodernism…..And Now Boxenism ( most all those buildings are boxes, some at least have setbacks that reminds the great era of New York and Chicago golden era of Deco and skyscrapers

Keep in mind there have been many supertall or near supertall proposals and approvals this past couple years since the faa starting virtually rubber stamping heights after they gave up on the scary one engine inoperative plan, but none of them have any real indication of happening yet. There’s been at least five including the downtown metromall, OBP, obcc, this, one Brickell , at least a couple more obscure 900-1000 footers.

What does it matter how tall the building is? If it has no eye catching architecture and quality, then it might as well be a giant cardboard box soaring the skyline.

This is not a bad architectural design, it doesn’t even rise to the level of architectural design. It’s a utilitarian building with little or no design. Nothing like this has been built in Manhattan for decades. There are a hundred or more towers under construction there and they all have decent architectural design. Why supposedly sophisticated people in Miami keep embracing this crap is the real question.

Because it’s bland and hideous.

Looks like It was approved at 1044 feet above the ground (rather than 1011).

This is obviously the old design with the 720-780 height range.

No architecture? No glass? Cheap materials used. Yes, another super tall eyesore soaring on Miami’s mediocre skyline of dullness and cheap plaster architecture.

It’s great to have more new buildings ugly or not( everybody has a different taste for women or architecture)
instead of empty lots that will never become parks but…,
This developer is famous for the poor quality material and horrendous insulation between apartments ( ask any person that suffered while living in one of his buildings units and get to hear the neighbors when they fart ). word of mouth says that one condo association included in its rule not to eat beans after 6pm and renters can’t be lactose intolerance!

The walls between apartments so thin you can get Zika from your neighbor

A great solution to this problem is one apartment per floor!!!!!

And price? Don’t go by market price but by quality of the second hand Chinese materials his company use…. Fair value will be at .27.90$ per sq foot!!!

At that price the building will be Funny Mae approved

If Miami, extremely condo parking pedestals were underground, we should go all the way to China to park or the heat from the earth core will melt the cars

Nearly all developers in Miami (and the country, and world probably) cheap out on interior construction between units because they don’t care and consumers don’t seem to care either.

This would have been such a great location for a park or public area. So many people at night are jogging, walking dogs, taking babies for a stroll, etc. Now, the views of the water will be more limited. Pave paradise, and put up a parking podium.

I’m sure he’d be happy to sell it to you for $300 or $400 million dollars. You’re free to turn in it into a public space once you own it.

That would be my dream come true! I’ll wait a year or so to see if the building slowdown will cause him to lower the price. I also have a goal of funding improvements to mass transit so I can’t spend all my money in one place.

I’m really curious how you made that kind of money when you’re business model is to give things away for free and eat a huge loss, but more power to you. Good luck.
