With almost six decades of experience, Florida East Coast Realty President Tibor Hollo points to the Genting casino project as the major force shaping the future of Miami. Hollo had a large hand in the development of the Omni/Venetia area, which is the future site for the $3 billion dollar resort and casino project. He told the Sun Sentinel that the plan was “an extremely ambitious undertaking” that would have “a tremendous impact on the immediate neighborhood and Miami as a whole.” Hollo came to Miami in the fifties and is largely credited with the early expansion of downtown Miami. At 84 years old, he remains one of Miami’s most influential developers. His newest project, the mixed-use One Bayfront Plaza, will become Miami’s tallest building upon completion. Overlooking Biscayne Bay, One Bayfront Plaza will stand over 100 stories tall and is the first skyscraper over 1,000 feet to be approved for construction in Miami. [Sun Sentinel]
