Three full blocks just west of Aventura could be developed into a trio of mixed-use buildings.
West Aventura Developers LLC and West Aventura Exchange LLC, both managed by Marina Kessler and Gustavo Lumer in Sunny Isles Beach, filed a pre-application with Miami-Dade County officials for the 7.9-acre site at 2375 N.E. 186th St. The property runs from Northeast 23rd Court to Northeast 24th Place and from Northeast 187th Street to Northeast 186th Street. It currently has some single-family homes, but it’s mostly vacant.
It’s located just north of Greynolds Park, on the south side of the Michael-Ann Russell Jewish Community Center.
The property is in the Ojus Urban Area, an area west of Aventura that the county rezoned to allow mixed-use development and more density. This has attracted a flurry of development.
The westernmost block of project would have an eight-story building with 378 apartments, 31,375 square feet of retail, and 585 parking spaces. There would be a rooftop pool deck.
The central block would have a 12-story building with 114,385 square feet of leasable office space; 16,715 square feet of retail, including a café on the ground floor; and 552 parking spaces. There would be a rooftop amenity deck with planters.
Finally, the easternmost block would have an eight-story building with 247 apartments, 19,160 square feet of retail, and 386 parking spaces. It would also have a rooftop pool.
Both apartment buildings were designed by Corwil Architects. Arquitectonica designed the office building.
Miami attorney Greg Fontela, who represents West Aventura Developers in the application, couldn’t be reached for comment. Developers file pre-applications to receive feedback from county officials before submitting official applications.
