at first it was going to be 1,180 feet
but since Miami has its airport so close and the FAA won't let it be that high
its now going to be 1,049 feet

the building is actually the same height , all they did is took out the spire.

If the close airport wasn't a problem and looking at Miami construction boom right now, they could've made ginormous towers.

Horrid at any height. Miami can do better than this given it's status as a new tallest.

The building is having an identity crisis imo...looks better without the spire though.

HIGHER AND HIGHER: Miami commissioners last week agreed to allow the Miami- Dade County aviation department to raise the maximum building height in the city's urban core from 949 to 1,000 feet. That would allow Tibor Hollo to develop One Bayfront Plaza — a $1.8 billion, 70-story mixed-use tower with 2.13 million square feet of rentable office space, 112,000 square feet of retail and 850 hotel rooms at 100 S. Biscayne Blvd. — almost as high as his desired 1,049 feet.

May not look good in daytime, but it will look gorgeous at night.

MIAMI: One Bayfront Plaza (proposed) - 1,049 feet, 70 floors

One Bayfront Plaza is a proposed supertall to be built by developer Tibor Hollo (Florida East Coast Realty) in Miami, Florida. Historically Miami has had strict height limits due to aviation concerns, but a new ordinance passed last month will now allow buildings over 1,000 feet, which will allow Miami to get its first supertall (building over 1,000 feet). Originally introduced as more of a vision, this project was supposed to be nearly 1,200 feet to the spire. At that height, it would have almost never gotten approved. With the new ordinance for downtown, however, Hollo realized he had a legitimate shot at getting it built. So the new design called for a height of 1,049 feet with 70 floors. The spire was reduced and the tower was redesigned to help the tower's chances of approval. It has yet to be approved, but both the FAA and Hollo beleive the tower has a legitimate shot of being approved. It approved, it would start construction most likely in 2010 or 2011. Completion is estimated for 2013. The building would feature retail and hotel space on the lower levels, and offices throughout most of the building. Although Miami's residential boom is fading, the office market is expected to pick up in the coming years, and has already shown signs of doing so.

The 21-story Citibank Plaza, which currently leaves a huge gap in the middle of the skyline between the 750-foot Wachovia Financial Center and the 500-foot One Biscayne Tower, would be demolished at last (built in 1959) to make way for the new tower, which would be centrally located near Bayfront Park, a mass transit station, and Biscayne Boulevard, the main thoroughfare in Miami. It will have a very prominent spot in Miami's skyline.

New Design, which will be the one submitted for approval


It would also be the tallest building in Miami if built, even taller than the proposed Empire World Towers which would be over 100 floors.

They were originally proposed at 1200', but since they didn't have a realistic shot at being approved for that height, the towers were reduced to just under 1,000 feet.


.....and yes, go ahead and merge this with the existing thread, I didn't see that one.

I like the first(front?) view..but the second(back?) looks like two completely different buildings somehow got stuck together-awkward looking just a bit.

This Project Is Serious...So Expect To See This Building In The Construction Thread.
The Reason It Will Take Three Years Before Ground Breaking Is Because They Will Have To Take Down The Building Which Now Sits On The Property.

FECR RECEIVES MUSP APPROVAL FOR ONE BAYFRONT PLAZA

Landmark project to be Miami’s tallest building

MIAMI, Fla. (July 25, 2007) – Florida East Coast Realty, Inc. (FECR) has received the City of Miami Major Use Special Permit (MUSP) for One Bayfront Plaza, a $1.8 billion development to include two 70 -story mixed-use towers at 100 S. Biscayne Blvd. in downtown Miami. The combined project will comprise two million square feet of rentable office space, 112,000 square feet of retail space and a four-star convention hotel with 850 rooms and 120,000 square feet of exhibition and banquet facilities overlooking Biscayne Bay and Bayfront Park. The property is to break ground in 2011 and should take approximately three years to build.

The signature design by TERRA Architecture will be matched only by the building’s size; the tower is poised to be the tallest building in Miami, at 1,049 feet. Unique will be its steel structure with fluid dampers to absorb wind gusts and its Green designation by LEED. It will also be the first hotel to be built north of the Miami River in 25 years.

“We have a vision for an icon,” said Tibor Hollo, Miami business and community leader and FECR company chairman and president. “As part of my legacy, I want to leave this city with a high-profile building on par with the Chrysler building in New York or the Sears Tower in Chicago, a tower that is home to major banks and law firms.”

Philip Dahan, FECR vice president, added, “MUSP approval confirms that the municipality recognizes the need for downtown to have a signature building that is functional in its multi uses. The futuristic features, pedestrian bridge and minimal environmental and traffic impact will all contribute to a new way of life for this city.”

FECR is also currently developing 2020 Ponce, a premier office condominium in downtown Coral Gables.

FECR was founded 55 years ago and is now co-managed by Hollo’s two sons, Jerome and Wayne. Since inception, FECR has built over 55 million square feet of landmark residential, commercial, industrial, and governmental properties and marinas. Among them are Rivergate Plaza, a mixed-use office tower in Brickell; Opera Tower; Bay Parc Plaza, downtown's premier rental building; and The Club at Brickell Bay. Hollo is also hailed for the development of a significant portion of the Venetia/Grand area, now part of the Arts District, just north of downtown Miami.

A community and business leader that has been integral in changing Miami’s skyline, Hollo was recently honored by the House of Representatives for his contribution to Miami’s growth. In 2006, Catholic Charities Legal Services and the Archdiocese of Miami presented Hollo with the New American Award, which recognizes individual immigrants’ contributions to society; and Florida East Coast Realty was honored by “South Florida CEO” magazine as Best Condo Developer.

FECR is headquartered at 100 South Biscayne Blvd, Suite 900, Miami, FL 33131. Tel: (305) 358-7710. For more information, visit www.fecr.com.
