‘Art Deco’ Apartment Building With Ground Floor Target Store Proposed In North Beach

North Beach could soon be getting a Target store, with a 12-story apartment building above.

The design of the tower is described by the developer as “expanding off the local Art Deco architectural heritage.” When complete, it will “create a surrounding atmosphere similar to Purdy Avenue in Sunset Harbour,” the developer wrote in a letter to city planners.

The project is proposed to include a 30,089 square-foot Target store. That is similar in size to a recently opened Target in South Beach, but much smaller than a full size Target such as in Midtown Miami.

The apartment building will have 170 multi-family units. There will also be a 179 space parking garage.

Since the project will be built higher than a 125-foot height limit imposed by Miami Beach, the developer will expedite development construction as a public benefit.

North Beach Town Center Development, LLC, an affiliate of Pacific Star Capital, LLC, submitted the proposal.

Cube3 is the architect.

The Miami Beach Planning Board is scheduled to review the proposal at a meeting on February 25.
