Miami Beach delays action on 90-foot Sunset Harbour project

With Mayor Philip Levine sitting out the discussion because of conflict of interest questions, the Miami Beach City Commission delayed action on a mixed-use project proposed for Purdy Avenue that seeks to build 90 feet high where only 50 feet is permitted.

The project proposed by Deco Capital LLC is across from Maurice Gibb Memorial Park, and would include 15,000 square feet of retail and a parking garage topped by 15 three-bedroom condos priced at $1 million plus.

Deco, which calls its project Sunset Harbour Residences, has said the taller, mixed-use project would have less traffic impact on the neighborhood than what is allowed for the property under code, about 45,000 square feet of retail.

There is plenty of neighborood opposition, from residents to the towing companies on Bay Road, the back side of the project.

The Miami Herald’s Joey Flechas has a complete story on Wednesday’s discussion.

Commissioners delayed a decision to its May 11 meeting.
