Tibor Hollo Wants Approval To Build One Bayfont Plaza At 1,049 Feet

Tibo Hollo filed plans with the FAA this week to build One Bayfront Plaza at 1,044 feet above ground, or 1,049 feet above sea level.

The FAA previously approved a height of 1,005 feet above ground for the tower. Those plans were submitted in 2013 and approved almost two years later in 2015, and the FAA has eased up on height restrictions since then.

The application lists a construction schedule that begins in January 2018.

The project will include office space, hotel, and some residential, according to the developer’s website.

An existing office and retail building on the site with the same name will be demolished. A lease with Ross Dress For Less was signed in 1993, and runs for ten years with four 5-year extensions (the final 5 year extension is from 2018-2023).

Besides failing geography, you also failed English:

Brickell is technically the main business section.

But leaving pedantry and going to colloquial definitions, you also don’t understand urban life. “Downtown” usually broadly refers to the urban core, which would include (and arguably be centered in) Brickell.

Do we know that’s the design they want to use? It’s an older design, but is it the current one? I ask because I honestly don’t know.

Very elegant tower. I hope the base (not shown) is not your typical garage podium.

Yes, a very elegant chisel!

Of course it’s on a podium – where do you thinks the cars are going to go?

I really hope this gets done. Few extra feet won’t hurt.

I love this building design. It’s so city like. This project has been circling around forever it seems. If construction is in 2018 then hope it is in 2018 or sooner.

2018 is shaping out to be the year DT Miami will be revitalized into something epic.

They are still actively leasing retail and office for this property as I walk by it every day. I don’t think this will get built any time soon but it’s good knowing Tibor Hollo is behind it. He’s been able to get things built unlike Manascum.

I keep asking about the 600 and 700 Biscayne sites.
Nobody really talks about future developments on these lots.

Yeah right! This won’t get built. I like it, but I’m just being realistic.
