Olakino House (Previously Edition Residences) – Fort Lauderdale

An entity led by Miami Beach couple Alex Kleyner and Diana Ulis won approval for its proposed condo development at 551 Bayshore Drive in Fort Lauderdale Beach. Besides Kleyner and Ulis, Parag Mehta of Kelta Corp., plus Keshal Parekh and Vatsal Shah of MICL Global are also part of the developing LLC. Previously, the Coral Gables-based embattled firm Location Ventures was approved to build the two-tower, 11-story, 65-unit Edition Residences on the site.

This January, Fort Lauderdale City Commission approved amended site plans, allowing 551 Bayshore SPE LLC to build the (larger) two-tower, 13-story, 83-unit condo Olakino House on the waterfront site, as it would still remain under 144 feet and with a floor plate of less than 16,000 square feet. Designed by Garcia Stromberg, the newly approved towers carry a similar architectural profile as the Edition Residences.

Kleyner and Ulis had acquired the 1.5-acre parcel for $30 million last year. The couple, partners in the previously approved Edition Residences, has also filed a civil lawsuit against Location Ventures' former CEO, Rishi Kapoor, alleging he defrauded them of $25 million in investment funds.

Opinions and Advice New Emotional Support Animal (ESA) Law Florida: Complete Condo Guide
Finding and moving to a new home can be a strenuous experience, even when you like the change you’re making. This is more so when you have an emotional condition or disability and part of your treatment involves having an Emotional Support Animal (ESA). In this case, finding a new home comes with a whole new set of challenges only you and your furry friend can know. And no one needs the added fear and stress of possibly being denied housing or being discriminated against for owning an ESA. Thankfully, a new Florida law on emotional support animals that went into effect July 1, 2020, explicitly states what you and your current/prospective landlord or HOA can and cannot do regarding Emotional Service Animals. The law applies to all condos, apartments, and rental homes. Last updated on March 27, 2024.
