It looks like Nine Island Avenue (and Asheville, N.C.) resident Josh Fisher has puzzled out the mystery address on the former Venetian Isle Motel, 20 Venetian Way.
Belle Isle’s newest high-rise condo, the Grand Venetian, carries the address 10 Venetian Way.
But the condo site used to carry the address 20 Venetian Way, Fisher notes, back when its owner was involved in a protracted zoning fight and lawsuit with Belle Isle residents and the city of Miami Beach.
Throughout that battle, the address of the proposed condo (owned by developer Victor Labruzzo), was 20 Venetian Way. The same address was used for the Grand Venetian construction office.
So there you go. And it sure looks different now.
