Mixed-use project by Crescent Heights and Terra Group

A 519-foot-tall condo-apartment tower has been partially approved by the Miami Beach Design Review Board to stand where the skeleton of the South Shore Hospital once remained. General approval had already been granted for a 46-story, 337-unit residential tower, along with a three-acre park, 15,000 sq. ft. retail pavilion and 578-space parking garage. This pre-construction project is set to occupy three city blocks between 500 and 700 Alton Road. The design variances not yet approved include the creation of 40 apartment units, each 480 sq. ft. in size (whereas city codes prescribe a minimum of 550 sq. ft.), plus two 110 sq. ft. detached signs saying "500 Alton" and "600 Alton" that would be visible from the McArthur Causeway. Other design details are still pending for review by the board.

Developer Avra Jain has planned a new condo-hotel to come up in the Miami River area. The condo units and 175 hotel rooms will be managed under the brand Sixty Hotels of New York. With most of the project being dedicated to hotel and office space, the residential units will only be available for sale post groundbreaking. The developer is hoping to break ground by January 2020. Much like most condo-hotels, residents will surely get access to the hotel’s amenities.

Prices are planned to average at $1,150 per sq. ft., or range between $1 million and $1.5 million

The island has been used primarily to house the fleet maintenance of vehicles such as police cars, and sanitation buildings for the City of Miami Beach, as well as a gas station for city vehicles, an electric plant, and the Fisher Island ferry terminal.
