As Belle Isle Blog reported previously, a development group including members of the Soffer family (think Turnberry) want to build a five-story structure featuring restaurants, retail, parking and high-end rental apartments on the two properties, which would be linked over the Alton Court alley by an overhead ramp connecting the parking garagess.

According to the Real Deal, plans call for a 30,699 square foot ground floor with a “prominent” supermarket and the upper levels would include 221 parking spaces, along with 29 residential units.

It’s supposed to go before the Miami Beach Planning Board next month, Next Miami reports.

  1. Is there a possibility that the new Whole Foods will move there instead of the location on the other side of Alton Road?

  2. Don’t forget Trader Joe’s. (Could happen…)
    I think that instead of opposing redevelopment of the Beach, we should be pushing for more transport alternatives including true bike lanes, more pedestrian streets, real public transport (not silly tourism trolleys).

  3. Of course it is more appealing than a gas station, however they are needed too, Larry’s Chevron , no more. Maybe …there will not be room for automobiles, only bikes and walkers!!!! Whatever. I wish it was like it was in 1991…etc.
