Tibor Hollo On The Future Of Development In Miami

Tibor Hollo On The Future Of Development In Miami

Tibor Hollo was recently honored by Miami Today. He shared his thoughts and future plans at a celebration dinner, the paper reported.

According to Hollo, Downtown and Brickell are still developing, and are the most important areas in Miami thanks to being endowed with “fantastic” transportation options.

After that, Hollo thinks the next area that will be developed will be Biscayne Boulevard, past 36th Street.

Hollo emphasized that City leaders must build infrastructure to keep up with the population – something that developers are unable to do. Millennials live different lifestyles than their parents did, he added.

Brickell’s Panorama Tower, which was developed by Hollo, opened to residents for the first time this month as the tallest building in Florida.

Hollo is now working to build even taller and grander, with the 1,049-foot One Bayfront Plaza preparing to begin construction soon.

He also announced that he will be building Mikado as a rental apartment tower with amenities similar to Panorama. It will be located at 407 NE 17th Terrace.

When asked about retirement, the 91-year-old Hollo said “I will retire when I get old.”

I’m so tired of people complaining about the infrastructure and metro expansions, when you are going to realize that this is the job of the City of Miami, not condo developers/builders. Complain with the mayor of Miami and the Miami Dade county, move your “A” from the keyboard and go elect someone who will build these improvements that we need and if they don’t do what you elect them for, go to their offices and held them accountable for their false promises.

I.e. Eileen Higgins! Go out and vote if you want change! DT/Brickell are one of the most underrepresented parts of the county because NO ONE votes!

Eileen has already come out against future metro rail. She is anti-development and pushes the same ideas that killed San Francisco like rent control, historical status and height restrictions.

killed San Fran? LOL!!

Substitute “gave SF the most expensive rents in the country” for “killed SF” and it’s a true statement.
Rents are high because demand is high relative to supply. Increasing supply is the best way to bring down rents or at least stabilize them. True there, true here.

Agreed. Both options in the runoff are crap.

Forget about San Francisco, She represents the same racist self-called activists, who killed the Wave Streetcar in Fort Lauderdale and condemned the MiMo District to an economic stagnation with the help of Sarnoff and Elvis Cruz who behind wall negotiated an arbitrary 35 FT height restriction in the Biscayne Corridor.
They are nothing but a gang of White Baby Boomers who want to perpetuate their archaic semi-segregated suburban lifestyle to the rest of the community.

This is an age old debate in every municipality – the impacts of development, and who bears the cost. The city has a comprehensive plan to forecast total build-out, and then the zoning code to implement it. But the plan is just a guess, and not everything is accounted for. It would be perfectly appropriate for the city to have a more rigorous approach to assessing development impacts as a part of the approval process, and to be honest, Miami doesn’t versus a lot of large cities. That may eventually change as limits start getting reached and infrastructure is strained, and then accountability may become more direct. But for the time being life is good, unless the bridge is up. Cheers.

Great post Miamicondo…I think.
So you are saying that making a plan for the future is just guessing about the future.
Okay. That sounds smart the way you write it….except that, with the exception of Madam Cloe, no one knows the future.
You are suggesting a more “rigorous approach” to guessing?
Cheers…
There are a lot of people who study the masterplan, impact, use, planning, and zoning.
Miami does a great job compared to other cities.

The proof is in the population. People vote with their feet (choices on where they live).

I just went to visit my grand uncle for his 80th birthday. He was so out of it he could hardly finish his slice of cake. Tibor is 11 years older than him and still in the game. I can only hope and cross my fingers that I will age like him… hey! one can dream, lol. Love him or hate him he is still a player, good for him!

No, Mikado will be on the lot directly behind opera tower and next to the podium for Aria, the lot with the car wash is being developed into a much larger project (50+ stories)

His buildings are not quality. It’s more about money for him. Melo and other builders are building better product

Are you out of your mind…just look at the cheap railing and finish in every single Melo’s building. They suck.

I’m not against the parking garage on the Mikado, rather how it looks with all the stupid irregular slots. Otherwise, it could be another solid building.

What does he mean by infrastructure? More roads, highways? He doesn’t say, but the saying actions speak louder than words.

He builds supertall buildings with thousands of car parking spots.

Why should he?
We are the ones who keep electing politicians who only respond to the pro stagnation demands of the segregated Miami coastal neighborhoods.

Yet another asinine comment… Not everyone works on the metro or metromover lines! Some of us have to commute to get to work. Get your head out to the sand, it is 2018 not 2118, people need cars, period!

What does he mean by infrastructure?
I would guess the Baywalk, the Riverwalk, the Underline, the trolley, the Metromover, the Metrorail, the Citibikes, the Lime Scooters, Monkey shuttle (or whatever it’s called), and the city buses.

Oh yeah….and US-1, I-95, and the roads.

The future for Hollo is to finish Panorama which far from being finished! It really starts to be an issue! No pools, no amenities, no common areas, highest floor can’t move in! Late for move-in! Before starting some else, maybe finish what you started!!

real talk… dude is 91 and has been developing in Miami forever. He should be blamed for some of the lack of infrastructure. he was certainly part of contributing to a majority of the urban planning problems the city faces. I understand (as a developer myself) it’s not his responsibility as a businessman, but as a Miamian, he could have been up on progressive thinking. it’s silly for him not to complain about this.

As a developer yourself, yave you have bought into the idea that there is a transportation problem in Brickell?
I live in Brickell, work in Brickell and diner collusuon arbor much.
If there is a transportation problem, then people who keep flocking to Brickell don’t seem to mind.
Assess it honestly, people who whine about Brickell RARELY, if ever, live in Brickell.
Tibor Hollo is wise, AND correct about the infrastructure in Brickell.
