Tibor Hollo Asks FAA Permission To Go Taller At Panorama

Tibor Hollo’s 83-story Panorama Tower is already under construction, but the developer is now requesting permission to build even taller than what is approved.

Earlier this week, the developer filed a request with the FAA to increase the height of Panorama to 868 feet above ground, or 876 feet above sea level. It is currently approved at 822 feet above ground.

Hollo has always wanted to build tall at Panorama. In 2011 Hollo asked for permission to build the tower at 843 feet above ground, but the agency cut it down to the 822-foot height.

After Panorama was cut down, Hollo suggested that MIA’s runways might need to be moved to allow for greater height downtown. Since then, the FAA has eased height restrictions and approved much taller high-rises nearby.

In the heat of Miami, big shadows are welcome.

Tibor Hollo is going to be 89 years old this year and he is still a player in the Miami Real Estate market. You sir are a great inspiration! Hope you build Panorama as high as you possibly can.

You probably sale lots of his condo units but probably never lived in any of them
Cheap material and shady contruction from Plaza Venetia to the last one on Brickell bay drive
They are not only plain and flat THEY ARE BUILD WITH THE CHEAPEST MATERIALS
of course is nice to have lots of high rises but if the price is a 3rd world country building I rather have less

Thank you!. I have wanted Panorama to be taller than what it was. But, why not go taller and leave it at 1000 feet even? Such a pretty building too.

Awesome Hollo! Fight the power man! This will put Miami on the map with skyscrapers. I always wondered how it is possible for the new buildings to be 1000′ while the ones that are currently under construction can’t.

Now, while we’re at it, lets raise the heights for every other skyscraper!

Off topic but I’ve been wondering lately… why do all the Brickell buildings in South Miami Avenue have the same ugly gray color? It’s not only the old ones like The Vue or Axis, it’s also the new ones like Millecento, Brickell City Center and SLS Brickell… Don’t get me wrong, I love those new buildings, but why do they all have the same neutral boring color? On Brickell Avenue they break from that rule, ie Plaza and 1050 are beautiful white…

Most likely the developers hire the same designers for the buildings. Most of these designers don’t really have an interest in being original in their designs. Also, it is much cheaper to build these buildings with the gray color and it also keeps the buildings cool. So, while there could be options to build something new with a truly nice design, the developers would be much more interested in keeping the costs down and profits up.

Plus, look at 500 Brickell. It was painted stark white, but the association doesn’t clean the damn thing, so it’s eventually becoming that ugly grey color mentioned in the original post. Ha!

If you push the Fed beast back and back it will adhere. We went from 800 to now 1049 feet max. If bold people like Hollo which suggested ” that MIA’s runways might need to be moved to allow for greater height downtown ” (which I’m all for) The Fed beast can at some point give in to allow restrictions to go up to 1200 + feet in height. That would be glorious to see towers of that capacity in the downtown.

Really? Move the runways, so that a developer can make more money? How about we put as much concern to solving the traffic gridlock that will soon strangle downtown.

This may be radical but there are other areas around Miami-Dade that could support 1000’+ buildings. The great thing about it is that it would make the county a metropolis.

Are the rails on the building temporary for protection of the contruction workers? or this building is going to have cheap finishes like all the buildings this guy build!!!

Sure, the new ugliest building in Miami, by a developer who has built some of the ugliest existing ones, make it taller! I would be all for supertall buildings if they had any of the architectural design of similar buildings in cool cities around the world. This is just pile of stacked concrete blocks covered with stucco like the majority of new buildings in Miami. I know, all the developer worshipping trolls on this site say good design is too expensive. Then how does every other city in the world do it?

AMEN! Design has a value, anyone disagreeing with that does not understand that Architecture is more than habitable space.
