July 2023: Miami’s New Development and Pre-Construction Condo News

Aug 10, 2023 August 10, 2023

Miami’s new construction condo market was buzzing with announcements this July. From 72 Park soft launching sales to Terra Group going bullish on a condo bulk buyout deal, there was plenty to watch out for as the market stepped into the second half of 2023.

This July, about 8 new residential projects were proposed, of which we’ll be keeping a close eye on Ugo Colombo’s Four Seasons in Coconut Grove, Lefferts’ second “72” condo tower in North Beach, and South Beach’s filler condo between the Sagamore and Ritz-Carlton. 

There were plenty of approvals to accelerate development at some highly anticipated projects such as E11even Residences Beyond and 600 Miami Worldcenter. Australian ATP Pro tennis player Nick Kyrgios could be your new neighbor if you plan on moving into the E11even Residences Beyond. Genting received four new bids for its massive waterfront parcel in Downtown Miami. And, Location Ventures’ Rishi Kapoor landed in a major soup with litigations and bribe allegations. 

Read on for more details on these and other updates in our monthly Miami condo pre-construction market roundup for July 2023:

Damac Properties’ 57-story Luxury Condo Tower – Surfside

Damac Properties’ 57-story Luxury Condo Tower – Surfside

Voting against an ordinance submitted by Damac Properties, Surfside commissioners shot down the developer’s plans to tweak setback requirements that would help accommodate a memorial built on 88th Street. The memorial would stand in honor of the tragic passing of residents of the collapsed Champlain South Tower. Commissioners argued that the setback would lead to the developer maximizing profits in the name of building the memorial.

Dubai-based Damac Properties has proposed building a new, luxury-branded development at the site of the collapsed Champlain Tower South. Designed by the internationally acclaimed Zaha Hadid Architects, the site will be home to two visually appealing towers connected by a 100-foot, glass-bottomed pool at the top.

Damac’s stunning pair of condo buildings will rise 12 stories with “cloud-like” design elements and a “precision-engineered” façade. Carrying a total of 57 luxury residences, buyers can expect to come home to extra-large units ranging from 4,000 to 15,000 square feet in size. Looking to deliver “the most luxurious project ever in Surfside,” Damac is yet to finalize a luxury brand partner for its waterfront residences.

Genting’s $1B+ Resorts World Miami Site – Downtown Miami

Genting’s $1B+ Resorts World Miami Site – Downtown Miami


Although talks of building a SmartCity with Terra fell through this June, Genting continues to attract bidders for its waterfront parcel. Currently, the Malaysian casino giant has received four offers for its 15.5-acre site, where it had previously hoped to build a multibillion-dollar resort. All offers are upwards of $1.2 billion. The Related Group, one of South Florida’s most prominent developers, passed on the deal as Genting expects to receive the whole acquisition price up front rather than in stages.
 


Location Venture’s Rishi Kapoor Caught in $25M Lawsuit

As CEO of Location Ventures, Rishi Kapoor, resigned from his post at the real estate development firm this July, the future of many condo developments went up in the air. There are multiple condo, co-living, and coworking projects being developed by Location Ventures and its Urbin affiliate in Miami, including Edition Residences Fort LauderdaleUrbin Coconut Grove and Urbin Miami Beach.

Here's a quick peek into how this affects Rishi Kapoor, Location Ventures, and their condo projects:

  • Rishi Kapoor is entangled in allegations that Location Ventures made multiple payments to Miami Mayor Francis Suarez for a private consulting gig as the company was seeking permits for its condo projects. This is being investigated by Miami-Dade’s ethics commission and the state attorney’s office.
  • A trio of investors has sued Kapoor to get back the $25 million they invested in some of Location Ventures’ condo projects.
  • In May, Location Ventures’ CFO, Greg Brooks sued the company, seeking unpaid commissions and accusing them of violating the Florida Whistleblower Act.
  • SB Architects also filed a lawsuit in June, claiming the firm did not pay up for their design services.
  • Construction at Urbin Miami Beach has been suspended due to a lack of building permits.
  • The future of Edition Residences Fort Lauderdale remains uncertain as the firm launched sales for the project but has yet to close on the land.
  • With the firm embroiled in litigation, Location Ventures’ new boss, Alan Fine (a retired Miami-Dade Circuit Court judge) is looking to avoid bankruptcy proceedings by going ahead with an orderly liquidation of the company and finding buyers willing to pay top dollar for its new construction projects.


Terra Group and Crescent Heights’ New Residential Tower – South Beach

Developers Terra and Crescent Heights are working on a deal with Miami Beach to rebuild a public health clinic in exchange for the right to construct a brand-new residential tower along Alton Road. The new residential tower will rise north of Terra’s Five Park condos and Canopy Park at 710 Alton Road, where the Miami Beach Community Health Center sits.

As per the proposed agreement, the developer duo is willing to build a 13,000-square-foot Community Health Center plus a 7,000-square-foot library at 663 Alton Road. In exchange, the duo has proposed redeveloping the former health center site into a 150-foot residential tower with up to 158 units. They are also willing to deed 6,838 square feet of this site to further expand Canopy Park.

For 710 Alton Road, Arquitectonica is developing an elegant design language that blends seamlessly with its existing landscape and the lush canopy of Canopy Park. Terra and Crescent Heights are leaning towards building a condo project on the site rather than a rental tower. 


Terra Group Bids for Amethyst Condo Site – Mid-Beach

Terra Group has entered the chat at the Amethyst! Where Mast Capital had been working on a bulk buyout for years, David Martin’s Terra Group decided to go bullish on acquiring a majority stake in Miami Beach’s Amethyst condo tower. So far, Mast Capital has managed to close on only 8 units in the building and is in contract for the remaining.

The 11-story, 120-unit Amethyst sits on Mid-Beach’s historic Millionaire’s Row. Affiliates of Terra recently started sending offers to unit owners at the 1964-built tower. In the meanwhile, unit owners have sued Mast Capital for dragging out the condo buyout deal with contract language that left them feeling trapped. With Terra in the picture, it is yet to be seen whether the two firms will work together on acquiring a majority to terminate the condo association and redevelop the property or move forth individually.


Former White House Inn Property Re-sale – North Miami

With rising construction, insurance, and labor costs, developers Related, BH, and Sagi decided to list their 1.1-acre, North Miami development site for sale. Seeking more than $25 million for the parcel located at 2305 Northeast 123rd Street, the developer trio previously planned a luxury condo project for the waterfront site. The partners had purchased the parcel for $11 million about two years ago.

The former White House Inn site stands approved to carry a 10-story luxury condo called Sky Villas at Bay Harbor with 53 units. Boasting 500 linear feet of water frontage, right off the Broad Causeway, the property was supposed to be home to an Arquitectonica-designed luxury condo tower, inclusive of a rooftop pool, spa, baywalk, and other amenities.
