Tibor Hollo will break ground on the 92-story One Bayfront Plaza in January 2019, according to an interview he gave this week with Miami Today.

Completion is estimated within 40 months of starting, he said. The building will top off at 1,049 feet, since that is the maximum permitted by the FAA in the area, Hollo said. He expects other developers will follow him and build at that height.

Most of One Bayfront Plaza will be devoted to apartments, with 1,052 units. The project will also include about 500,000 square feet of office space and 200,000 square feet of retail, along with a 200-room hotel. It will be directly connected to a Metromover station by bridge.

Residences will start on level 22. A sky recreation deck will have two giant pools, including one for hotel guests. A second amenity deck will be located on level 40.

Hollo is 90 years old. He currently has Panorama Tower under construction in Brickell, which is already the tallest structure in Miami. Hollo said that Panorama will top off at 867 feet, surpassing any other building in the area by 100 feet, and the tallest (residential) tower south of New York on the eastern seaboard.

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.

The developer just 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.

Developer PMG received approval today from the FAA to build a 1,049-foot tower at 300 Biscayne Boulevard, and they fully intend to build to that height.

PMG’s tower will be taller than the Empire World Towers once proposed for the same site:

PMG principal Ryan Shear told TNM that the developer “has full intention to use every foot.” The tower would be the tallest in Miami.

The approved height is 1,041 feet above ground, or 1,049 feet above sea level. At that height, it will be taller than the 93-story Empire World Towers project that was once proposed for the same site.

Details of the project haven’t yet been revealed, but it is expected to include about 500 luxury condos.
