Proposed

New 16-story Condo Tower – 5775 Collins Avenue, Mid-Beach

Mid-Beach’s Marlborough House will be replaced with a brand-new 16-story condo tower housing 86 units and 185 parking spots. The company behind the development is owned by Brazilian billionaire Jose Isaac Peres. Arquitectonica has been roped in for design. The project is pending review by the Miami Beach Design Review Board this June. With a two-story underground garage, the proposed condo can run into trouble with the city’s planning and zoning department that has approved underground parking restriction in the wake of sea levels rising.

Issues & Lawsuits

Biscayne BeachEdgewater

Sued for debris-related physical damage
It’s just been a month since Biscayne Beach received its temporary certificate of occupancy, but developers are already being taken to court. The condo association of neighboring Bayside Terrace along with the Plaza Construction Group and Baker Concrete Construction have alleged that the building exterior, landscaping and residents’ cars have suffered direct physical damage due to construction debris. A lawsuit is filed in the Miami-Dade Circuit Court. Read more here.

Aston Martin ResidencesDowntown Miami

Off-site private beach club on hold
What could have been one of the most unique amenities could now turn into a distant memory. Developers G & G Business Developments failed to secure approval for an off-site beach club at the Virginia Key Beach Park. Residents would have been ferried to the $4 million pavilion that would feature a public events space and members-only enclave. The Virginia Key Beach Park Trust wants the venue open to and owned by the public.
