Oct 05, 2020 October 05, 2020

September seems to have been the month of approvals for pre-construction condos in Miami. First, we had Mid-Beach’s Aman Tower through its first round of approvals and ready to replace the historic Versailles Hotel. Next, the masterplan, backed by SHVO, to restore the Raleigh Hotel and include a condo tower has been approved. And lastly, Dezer Development’s 30-acre megaproject will be moving forward with a second plan review after a positive first vote.

But that’s not all. There are plenty of other updates part of the September edition of our monthly roundup of pre-construction condo developments in Miami. Read on for details on these and other South Florida pre-construction condo buildings and new developments in our monthly round-up below, including details on the Fort Lauderdale Four Seasons’ construction status, Villa Valencia’s amenity update, and more.

Approved - Miami Pre-Construction Condos

Raleigh Hotel and Condo Master Plan – South Beach

Raleigh Hotel and Condo Master Plan

The Miami Beach Historic Preservation Board
voted 5-1 to approve a 175 ft. oceanfront condo, part of the Raleigh Master Plan, after NYC-based developer SHVO accepted a haircut (down from 200 feet to 175 feet, or 18 floors to 16) for its luxury condo-hotel designed by Kobi Karp.

The glass condo tower will be part of the 3-acre Master Plan for The Raleigh Hotel, which will also include and unify the neighboring South Seas and Richmond Hotels. The project aims to preserve the front lobbies of the Richmond and South Seas Hotels, while 84% of their space will be repurposed into the condo tower. However, the board has directed that The Raleigh will first need to be restored to all its former glory, and can only be used as a hotel post redevelopment as well, before any of the other plans are put into action.

Aman Tower – Mid-Beach

Aman Tower - Mid-Beach

Co-developed by Vlad Doronin’s OKO Group and Len Blavatnik’s Access Industries, the Aman Tower has won its first round of approvals at a presentation to the Miami Beach City Commission. The condo-hotel has been approved for a height of 250 feet. Though taller than its surrounding buildings, the building’s slimmer design helps it preserve view corridors in the Faena District.

While the development’s hotel component is set to rebuild the historic (gutted) Versailles hotel, the condo tower will sit to the southeast of the property. Japanese architect Kengo Kuma has designed the 23-unit condo tower, whereas Belgian architect Jean-Michel Gathy will be designing the 56-key Versailles hotel. 

According to the OKO Group, the Aman hospitality brand has already built 11 properties close to UNESCO world heritage sites, globally. For its Mid-Beach project too, developers aim to stay respectful of their physical surroundings as well as the culture of Miami Beach. The condo-hotel will be presented for its second round of voting to Miami Beach’s Historic Preservation Board in October.

30-Acre Mega Project with Luxury Condos - North Miami Beach

30-Acre Mega Project with Luxury Condos - North Miami Beach

After a successful first reading, developer Gil Dezer will be moving forward with a second reading to the North Miami City Commission for his proposed 30-acre, mixed-use, megadevelopment transforming the Intracoastal Mall and a 3-story office building close by.

The Zyscovich Architects-designed development will feature 2,000 residential units inclusive of luxury condos and rental apartments, 375,000 sq. ft. of retail with a grocery store, 200,000 sq. ft. of office space, 250 hotel rooms, a harbor, central park, and much more. Further, the four-phased project has been approved on the undertaking that Dezer will also build police and fire substations, a community center, and infrastructure around the megadevelopment.

Awaiting a vote from the City of Miami’s Urban Development Review Board, other proposed amenities at the tower will include a rooftop pool deck, a 9th-floor amenity center with gym and lounge, plus an outdoor dining area, and garden.
