Billionaire Jeff Greene, who has an assemblage of about 25 acres in the Currie district, is approved to build a two-tower condo complex at 2175 and 2251 N. Flagler Drive across the street from the Intracoastal and Currie Park. Greene had proposed condo plans for the 4.5-acre site in 2019 but didn't follow through. The developer went back to the drawing board after the city rezoned the 65-acre Currie Mixed-Use District to permit taller and denser developments in 2021. 

Greene’s original plans for the project included two Herzog & de Meuron-designed towers connected by a parking/amenity podium. Besides carrying 152 high-end condos, the project would also have a combined 678,000 square feet of sellable space and 325 parking spots. Planned amenities would include a pool, a spa, a gym, and a dining/party room. 

The developer is using a height bonus to build the 350-foot-tall pair of towers. In exchange, Greene will be contributing $6 million towards the extension of Northwood Road from North Dixie Highway to the Currie Park entrance.
