Clevelander Submits Plans To Turn South Beach Party Spot Into Housing

The owners of the Clevelander Hotel and Bar submitted plans to the city of Miami Beach on Monday to transform the famous party spot into a restaurant and 18-story housing development, shorter than the 30 stories first floated last month but substantially taller than other buildings nearby on Ocean Drive.

The proposal calls for a 200-foot tower above a ground-floor restaurant where the Clevelander currently stands. The project would have 137 residential units, 55 of which would be designated as workforce housing.

Monday’s submission comes more than six weeks after Jesta Group announced its intention to redevelop the Clevelander and adjacent Essex House hotel under Florida’s Live Local Act, which lets developers circumvent local height and density regulations if they commit to designating 40% of new housing units as affordable to renters earning up to 120% of the area median income.

Clara Homes is the latest developer to seek a piece of Wynwood.

The Miami-based company is under contract to buy a 17,000-square-foot lot for $7.7 million, with plans to build a luxury rental building on the site under Florida’s newly enacted Live Local Act, according to a company spokesperson. The sale is expected to close by the end of 2023.

The parcel holds a single-story retail building that’s home to the Austin Burke men’s clothing store at 2601 NW Sixth Avenue, located between the Interstate 95 and the 545 Wyn office building,

The clothing retailer owns the property and will remain there for now, as the deal includes a sale leaseback for one year. Austin Burke purchased the property, completed in 1967, for $340,000 in 1988, according to property records.

Clara Homes plans to build a 152-unit luxury rental building with ground-floor retail designed by Miami architectural firm Kobi Karp. The developer plans to utilize a provision from the Live Local Act, a state housing law enacted earlier this year, that allows added density in return for designating at least 40 percent of apartments as workforce housing.

Miami Beach To Consider Mixed-Use Development Deal For City Land

1000-washington_photo credit sfbj 1170x435

On the city parking lot next door, the owner of Miami Beach’s Washington Park Hotel has proposed to create a mixed-use project.

On October 18, the City Commission will consider how to move forward with WPH Properties LLC‘s offer for the 14,694-square-foot parking lot at 1000 Washington Ave. It may decide to suggest that municipal employees make a contract, look for additional bids, or decide not to proceed with any proposal at all.

For $43.75 million, WPH Properties purchased the nearby Washington Park Hotel in the beginning of 2021. The business made the city an unsolicited bid for the parking lot later that year. The preliminary terms of a development agreement have been considered by city employees.

The developer wants to pay $2 million over the first three years, as well as $470,000 annually with a 2% annual increase, to lease the lot from the city for 99 years. The property was evaluated for $8.8 million, according to the city.

WPH Properties presented their ideas for a seven-story structure that would house 1,75 parking spaces, including one level of underground parking, 4,065 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor, and 33,640 square feet of office space. On the roof would be an amenity deck with a pool.

The term sheet does state that, contingent upon the developer’s choice of business plan, the middle three stories of office space—roughly 25,000 square feet—might be substituted with workforce housing apartments. Still, the applicant wants to keep the office space on the top floor regardless.
