Chabad Russian Center broke ground yesterday on a new Sunny Isles Beach Jewish Community Center.
Groundbreaking for the new center comes weeks after Sunny Isles commissioners approved a variance to build a 28-story, Carlos Zapata-designed condo tower on the property. A deal with developer Avra Jain allowed Chabad to fund construction of the $15 million center.
The new JCC will include a synagogue, preschool, restaurant and banquet hall. Schapiro Associates is the architect.
