93 Ocean – Surfside

With Brazilian billionaire Jose Isaac Peres and his firm Multiplan Real Estate Asset Management acquiring the beachfront parcel at 9309 and 9317 Collins Avenue, plans for 93 Ocean could soon be materialized. The veteran condo developer purchased the pre-approved property for $64 million from a Vivian Dimond-led entity this January.

Both Vivian Dimond and Multiplan had filed plans to co-develop 93 Ocean back in 2022. The Collins Avenue property is currently home to the 34-unit Regent Palace Condominium. Built in 1951, Regent’s condo association was terminated before closing with Multiplan. 

According to plans filed in 2022, 93 Ocean would be developed as a 12-story condo containing 27 extra-large units. Designed by Miami’s prolific Arquitectonica, the building would feature a resistance pool and a reflecting pond along a private path leading to the beach, a rooftop pool deck, a fitness center, a steam room, a sauna, a club room, and more.

Multiplan REAM plans to launch sales for 93 Ocean by the end of 2024. If you’d like to be among the first to know about this sale, email or call us to keep you updated.

Filing for a height increase to 65 stories (or 870 feet above sea level), up from the previously proposed 55 stories, and seeking a zoning review, G&G Business Developments presented updated plans for Calle 8 this January.

Replacing a gas station in Brickell, the tower will rise at 190 Southwest 8th Street. Starting from level 12, units will range from studios to three-bedroom residences.

Bal Harbour

Mixed-use Project at Bal Harbour Shops – Bal Harbour

Whitman Family Development’s proposal to add a mixed-use development to the 18-acre luxury shopping mall has been met with mixed emotions. The owner-developer plans to build a 70-room upscale hotel, a 600-unit high-end residential tower (of which 40% would be workforce housing and 60% would be luxury housing), and 45,700 square feet of additional retail space at the premier shopping destination.

Residences by Armani Casa, the Miami Beach Club is an H-shaped, oceanfront, two-story condo building built in 1951. Related is looking to close on a bulk buyout of the building for $145 million.

Key Point Academy Relocates Ahead of Redevelopment – 

Key Point Academy Relocates Ahead of Redevelopment – Brickell

With the First Miami Presbyterian Church site listed for sale, Key Point Christian Academy signed a lease this January to temporarily relocate to the 1501 Omni Building in Miami’s Edgewater. Developers 13th Floor Investments and Key International are looking to close on the 75-year-old church property at 609 Brickell Ave., for about $240 million. Both developers plan to build a condo on the 2.2-acre site.

The 1501 Omni Building, Key Point’s future home, was once known as the Omni Mall and has been part of Genting’s Resorts World Miami portfolio since 2011. Had the state approved gambling, the ambitious project would have become a destination casino resort.

Court-appointed Receiver Takes Over Location Ventures

In another turn of events in the Rishi Kapoor-Location Ventures saga, the court-appointed Bernice Lee as the official receiver to look into the alleged misappropriation of investor funds. Lee will be managing Location Ventures as well as Urbin, its co-living and co-working-focused entity.

Rishi Kapoor, CEO and the main accused, seems to have welcomed the court’s decision to appoint a receiver to look into the misappropriation of $93 million and if anything could be recovered. Meanwhile, the future of development projects such as Urbin Miami Beach and Urbin Coconut Grove remains uncertain.
