42-story Condo Tower – South Beach

Developer Crescent Heights has proposed to build a 42-story condo tower at the entrance to South Beach on Alton Road. After talks with city administration, the condo tower will now be slimmer with a 13,900 sq. ft. floor plat opposed to its initial proposal of 17,000 sq. ft. The 5th Street tower will also feature only 42 stories with 400 units opposed to 60 with 510 residences.

One of the major highlights of the new plan is a 2.5 acres park that will be donated to the city for public use. The tower will also feature a single-story commercial plaza towards the east, inclusive of cafés and other establishments fit for community activities.
