Stellar Communities is seeking more density for an apartment complex planned in the Ojus neighborhood near the Aventura Brightline passenger rail station.
The Dania Beach-based developer, via affiliate 18801 WDH PO LLC, filed plans in May for 204 apartments in a 15-story building at 18801 W. Dixie Highway. It purchased the vacant site of 1.58 acres for $7.85 million in 2021.
The developer recently filed an administrative site plan review application with Miami-Dade County showcasing a new design and more density. The 15-story tower would now contain 245 apartments, 13,816 square feet of retail and 316 parking spaces, with 42 of them available for electric vehicle charging stations. It would secure more density by utilizing the workforce housing density program, which will require 10% of the apartments leased as workforce housing.
Totaling 318,652 square feet, Element Aventura would have a rooftop amenity deck with a pool, a gym, a yoga room, a clubroom and a barbecue area.
