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.

Residential Building Boom Hits Aventura

Photo Credit-ONE Park Tower by Turnberry 1170x435

Aventura and North Miami are in the midst of a multi-billion-dollar transformation, featuring new housing developments, schools, retail, transit and more.

Aventura, where the median single-family home price jumped 25% from $990,000 in 2022 to $1.237 million in the first quarter of 2023, according to a market report from ONE Sotheby’s International Realty.

Aventura’s population has steadily increased since 1990, when it was about 15,000. It grew to 25,000 by 2000, 35,000 in 2010, and today roughly 40,000 people call Aventura home. North Miami’s population jumped from about 50,000 to nearly 60,000 during the 1990s, and it has remained steady since then.

The same is true just south in North Miami, which has seen a more than 400% increase in residential units from 2019 to 2022, with more on the way, plus seven new schools and a boost to its local commerce. Nearly 20% of the area’s nearly 2,300 businesses opened since the start of 2022.

Now, developers are working to capitalize on the region’s growth with a series of housing developments new to the market, in construction or in the planning stages.

One of the largest is the 184-acre SoLé Mia community, led by Jackie Soffer’s Turnberry Development and Richard LeFrak’s LeFrak Organization. The developers have plans for thousands of residential units, 1.5 million square feet of retail and commercial space and a 10-acre University of Miami UHealth Medical Center, scheduled to open in 2025. The residential offerings will include the 33-story ONE Park Tower by Turnberry overlooking South Florida’s first seven-acre swimmable lagoon.

North Miami developments in the works include:

  • Aliro Luxury Apartments, 1820 NE 142nd St., approved to add 519 additional residential units and a parking garage.
  • Allure of North Miami, 1810 NE 146 St., approved to build a two-acre apartment complex with 360 units and a percentage of affordable housing options.
  • La Maison, 1850 NE 123rd St., approved to develop 297 residential rental units and 18,500 square feet of retail and restaurant space.
  • NoMi Square, 13855 NW 17 Ave., approved to build a seven-story development with 338 units and a public park.
  • North Miami Condos, 840 NE 130th St., approved to build a six-story, 67-unit luxury residential project with green building design and transit components.
  • Oleta, NE 151st St. & NE 20th Ave., approved for four residential towers with nearly 20,000 square feet of commercial and restaurant space.

Aventura is witnessing a wave of building and infrastructure improvements as well. The projects will upgrade Aventura Mall, add the new Brightline train station, bring on a new Hyatt House Hotel and introduce several new restaurants, retai shops and luxury residences.

Some residents there have expressed concerns about proposed changes to the land development regulations in the city’s master plan. They cite the potential for increased traffic and an influx of high-rise buildings along the beach. Last month, a petition launched seeking to “stop excessive development in Aventura,” and it has collected more than 1,400 signatures.

How that might affect the future of development in the area is still unclear, but there’s no denying Aventura and North Miami are booming.

Commuter Rail From Downtown Miami To Aventura Getting $103M From FDOT

The Florida Department of Transportation has agreed to commit $103.5 million towards Miami-Dade’s Northeast Corridor rail project, Brightline told investors last week.

FDOT’s announcement came in a November 9 letter to the county, Brightline said.

On the same day, FDOT also informed Broward that it would provide $74.3 million towards its commuter rail project on the same tracks from Aventura to Fort Lauderdale. The two counties are working together on the service.

That brings the total FDOT commitment for the new train service to $177.8 million.

Brightline expects to execute definitive documents with Miami-Dade in the next several months to allow the service on its tracks.

The Northeast Corridor is expected to run 13.5 miles and cost $682 million, including track and right-of-way access fees.

The county is seeking 50% funding from the Federal Transit Administration, 25% from the state and 25% from local funds, according to the project website.

Station locations are being studied at:

  • MiamiCentral/Government Center (existing)
  • Wynwood/Edgewater
  • Design District
  • Little Haiti
  • North Miami (near Northeast 123rd Street)
  • North Miami/North Miami Beach (near Northeast 151st Street)
  • Aventura (construction already nearing completion)

The service is expected to run 5 AM to midnight, with 60 minute headways. During peak morning and afternoon weekday rush hour times, headways would be 30 minutes.

Engineer HNTB is now working on 30% level rail infrastructure and platform drawings, after the county issued a Notice to Proceed to the firm in August.

Aventura Condo Project Moves Forward

2151 Development Group and 2020 Acquisitions have received conditional use approval for Tal Aventura, an upcoming 86-unit luxury condo tower in Aventura, Fla. IDEA Architects is behind the design of the 26-story, family-oriented project.

Units are set to range between 2,500 and 3,500 square feet, offering roofed porches and views of the nearby Maule Lake, while penthouses are slated to exceed 6,000 square feet. Common-area amenities, along with public green spaces, will total more than 50,000 square feet.

The South Florida Business Journal reported at the beginning of the month that the 1.6-acre vacant site was recently rezoned for high-density residential development. The plot is situated just off Biscayne Boulevard, at 2785 NE 183rd St., roughly 18 miles north of downtown Miami. Top-rated schools, along with various retail and dining options, are within walking distance of the property.

According to Florida YIMBY, the City Commission will allow the partners to construct 56 units per acre—above the city’s standard limit of 45 units. The tower will also be one story higher than the 25 stories permitted in the area. In return for these benefits, developers are set to contribute $72,000 per year toward the city’s public transportation program, for a total of five years.

South Florida’s dynamic condo market

Despite condo purchases being more difficult to finance in the current high interest rate environment, Miami’s condo market has remained active this year. In late August, Bentley Motors and REALM-Global shared plans for an upcoming 62-story luxury condominium tower in Sunny Isles Beach, Fla. Bentley Residences is set to become the tallest coastal multifamily building in the country.

In July, The Related Group announced the development of a 343-unit luxury condo tower in downtown Miami. Dubbed District 225, the 37-story high-rise will offer units ranging between 441 and 847 square feet.
