An affiliate of Cabi Developers is planning to build a three-story food hall on a vacant site in Aventura.
The developer filed an application with city officials concerning the 1.45-acre site at 2777 N.E. 185th St. The developer acquired the property for $5.77 million in 2007. It’s located behind the Walgreens and Wild Fork Food stores.
The development design for a retail and restaurant establishment with both indoor and outdoor dining space is being modified by Cabi. On the ground floor alone, plans include various restaurants with a combined indoor space of 14,091 square feet, plus extra space on the second and third floors, according to the preliminary site plan by Miami-based Arquitectonica. A drop-off area and a modest parking garage would be present.
The food hall, dubbed L’Isola, will include select restaurants and vendors with a varied selection of international cuisine, as well as a rooftop restaurant and cocktail lounge, according to Miami-based attorney Brian S. Adler, who represents the developer in the application. He stated that there would be 19,200 square feet of internal area, in addition to rooftop and outdoor eating.
