Panorama Tower Is Now Miami’s Tallest

The developers of the $800 million Panorama Tower say that it has passed the height of the Four Seasons and is now the tallest in Miami.

“As the tallest building south of Manhattan, we developed Panorama to become a Miami icon,” said Jerome Hollo, Manager at Florida East Coast Realty. “We’ve seen Miami’s growth and transformation into a global city over the past several decades, and we’re constantly working to bring this city to new heights. We are eager to introduce Panorama to the burgeoning Brickell area.”

The building is scheduled to top off at 85 stories, or 868 feet tall including antenna.

A fire on the 68th floor last week was contained to a single unit and won’t affect the construction schedule. Completion is scheduled for October 2017.

The lower levels of the project includes a 208-room Hyatt Centric hotel, 100,000 square feet of medically-oriented office space, and 50,000 square feet of high-end retail space. The upper levels will have 821 luxury rental apartments.

There won’t be an observation deck on top, but there will be a restaurant and lounge on level 52.

A retail-lined promenade will also be built at the north end of the property, becoming the only public connection from Brickell Avenue to Brickell Bay Drive for several blocks.

Great news. But not sure why they keep promoting this as the tallest building south of New York. Buildings in Philly, Atlanta, Charlotte, Houston and Dallas are taller.

Agreed. It may be the tallest residential or apartment rental building south of New York, but definitely not tallest overall.

I believe that the other buildings you’re referring to that link are proposed. So maybe this is currently the tallest constructed outside New York..

Actually no…. Those are all built projects. On the right hand side it indicates their year of completion.

My bad for not clarifying I am referring to strictly residential.

It’s a hotel, too. I assume “the tallest building south of Manhattan” means along the East Coast.

Correct. Which, is an odd saying, but he means the tallest building on the coast, South of NYC. Its a marketing ploy, and its not a good one. Tallest building in Florida is good enough for me.

That’s good and well, but according to the quote, Jerome Hollo didn’t use the “residential building” qualifier.

There was a fire on the 68th floor of Panorama last week, I could see the smoke from my office, glad it was contained and that no one got hurt. Our first 80+ story building, hopefully one of many.

This building makes me sad every time I see it.. what a lost opportunity. It is one of the least inventive, most pedestrian designs I have ever seen.. in fact its dimensions make it oppressive rather than graceful. I simply don’t think the city ought to allow developers to build anything of that magnitude without considering its impact on the skyline. Yuck!

Agree 1000%, horrible, doesn’t even rise to the level of being called architecture, but most on this site care only about more and taller buildings.

I have to agree. It is a giant rectangular block.

It’s weird that this building is the tallest build in Florida yet it hasn’t had much press. I haven’t seen or read as much on this building as I would have thought. That tell’s me they didn’t have that great of a marketing strategy.
