Purdy Avenue retail, parking and luxury condo project gets early ok for 90-foot height

shopsThe Residences at Sunset Harbor, a mixed-use project proposed for Purdy Avenue across from Maurice Gibb Memorial Park, got a blessing last week from a key Miami Beach committee to rise 90 feet in an area where the height limit is 50 feet.

The trade-off developer Bradley Colmer pitched to the land-use committee: more height in exchange for less intense use. The code allows 45,000 square feet of retail in a 50-foot-high structure. This project would include 15,000 square feet of retail at street level, and two floors of parking topped by 15 large, luxury condos priced at roughly $3 million each.

The project, just north of the Loft condominium and south of the bungalow that features kayak rentals, will face the Gibb Park and Biscsayne Bay. Cars will enter from the eastern back end on Bay Road.

The Miami Beach City Commission still must review the proposal.

  3. Yet another outrageous concession to developers to the detriment of residents. That’s what happens when you elect developers to office. They take care of their own.
