Earlier this year developer Tibor Hollo (a guy that's been building things in this town for as long as anyone can remember) announced his stalled project 1101 Brickell, Miami's future tallest building, would begin construction at the end of the year. Well, continuing today's apparent Curbed Miami theme of previously stalled big name projects that are back on line, Hollo told the Daily Business Review, in an article about one of Miami's last Bayfront parcels, that site work has already begun on 1101 Brickell. (How's that for a run-on sentence?) That would mean things started happening in late September or early October, three solid months before the end of 2012. The building was originally designed by architect Kobi Karp to be 80 stories, 849 feet tall, and entirely residential except for a retail segment at ground level, which is presumably still the case.
