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.
