Proposals

Resorts World Miami’s Bus Terminal Redevelopment – Arts & Entertainment District

Still unsuccessful in fetching an approval for their casino resort, Resorts World, a Genting Group subsidiary, has submitted plans for a $200 million redevelopment. After the county requested suggestions on redeveloping a bus terminal and adjacent Metromover station in the A&E District, the Group’s proposed putting a 36-story tower on top of the terminal. This tower will front a grand public plaza and feature 20 floors of residences and a 300-room hotel. While the residences will average 918 sq. ft., the hotel rooms will average 350 sq. ft. Whether the residences will turn out to be condos or rentals is yet to be seen.

Approvals

Atlantis – Bay Harbour Islands

A mid-rise condo project by the Saba Group, Rilea Group and Grupo Burotto has won zoning approvals from the city’s planning and zoning board. If developed, the building will feature contemporary island architecture with condos ranging between 1,033 sq. ft. and 1,990 sq. ft. in size. Other noteworthy features include a 60-foot-long rooftop pool, extensive landscaping and 15 different floor plans to choose from. The project now has to seek approval for 11 TDRs or “transfer of development rights” from the city commission.

Other Updates

Missoni Baia - Edgewater

A highly anticipated first from the fashion house famous for its zigzag designs, Missoni Baia has had a change of sales team. The Fortune International Group now handles sales and marketing for this OKO Group development instead of Cervera Real Estate. Fortune will also be managing sales for the Group’s 2-acre waterfront parcel sitting north of Missoni.
 
The waterfront Missoni Baia will be a 57-story, 146-unit luxury condo development. Amenities include interiors by Italian fashion house Missoni, a bayfront boardwalk, bayfront lounge and pool, children’s water features, beauty salon, one of Miami’s largest spas and a flow-through pool deck with cabanas, among others.
 
Prices continue to average $900 per square feet with a choice of two + den to four bedrooms


 
Issues & Lawsuits

Related Group’s Proposed Luxury Condo Project – Terminal Island

Coast Guard raises objections over security concerns

The Related Group’s 25-story, waterfront luxury condo tower proposed for Terminal Island has run into troubled waters. The 90-condo development will be positioned to overlook the Coast Guard Miami Beach station. As obvious, the base’s Captain has cited this as a security and operations concern. Another objection raised by longtime activist, Frank Del Vecchio is that for any private owner to request re-zoning, they would have to own majority of the frontage. However, Related only owns about 3.7 acres of the 18-acre site, which is only about 20%. For more info, click here.
 
P&O Global Technologies’ Proposed Condo Tower – North Bay Village

Residents oppose height increase ordinance and more

Malaysian-based company, P&O Global Technologies has proposed a 77-condo, 340-foot luxury tower for the sleepy village. However, a residents’ outcry ended up deferring North Bay Village commissioners from approving three ordinances - and stalling plans for the new building.
 
If passed, these ordinances would have allowed the development of 340 ft. structures on an overlay district in Harbor Island - higher than the current 240 ft. approval and more than double the current tallest structure at 170 ft. The second rejected approval would have allowed for a transfer of development rights from Vogel Park, which would have delivered $2.2 million in revenues. And, a third would have allowed for a mechanical elevator parking space for the proposed tower along with a lease option for residents of the island. P&O’s only option is to come back with a shorter and skinnier tower, with a reduced height of 290 feet and width of 50% of street frontage instead of the original 60%.
