Is This Gil Dezer’s Town For Millennials In North Miami Beach? Possible Sneak Peek

Developer Gil Dezer may have just dropped a big hint of his plan to build a “very special new town” for millennials next to Sunny Isles.

The sneak peek was uploaded yesterday to an Instagram account which is rumored (but not confirmed) to belong to Dezer. The account owner is listed as anonymous.

In the upload, at least four new towers can be seen, on property that appears similar to the Intracoastal Mall site in North Miami Beach. Dezer owns the mall.

Dezer has previously said his town for millennials there would include 2,000 residential units, connected to downtown Miami and South Beach by high speed vaporetto boats.

The project could also include the largest metropolitan wine cave in the world, virtual reality rooms, top of the line fitness facilities, and shared office space. A total of 2.5 million square feet of nonresidential space was said to be planned.

The tallest towers could top off at 495 feet, which is equivalent to around 40 to 50 stories in height.

A new canal could also be built into the property.

Miami architect Zyscovich was said to be planning the development, and the Zyscovich logo can be seen in the upload.

Young people want to walk, bike and take mass transit.

This has none.

It has a state park and the beaches nearby so there is plenty of biking that could be done and this place isn’t dense enough for rail. Plus they proposed water taxis for this project.

who the heck takes a water taxi in Miami aside from a tourist.

How long does a water taxi take from Sunny Isles to Downtown Miami? What if the seas are rough?

I’m sure the towers will be nice but they will probably be expensive. If that’s the case, wouldn’t a millennial just live in downtown? Especially if they work there?

What part of miami would you consider not expensive?

Plenty of places.

Good luck with the traffic….. and millennial wants to have everything nearby

Horrible development. North Miami Beach commissioners should be ashamed. Traffic will be horrendous. Property taxes will rise to meet infrastructure needs, such as sewage, emergency management, etc. No benefit to current residents expect new towers hovering over their homes…y’all will down vote this but it’s the truth. NMB is not DWTNMIA.

the thing is, no city in South Florida gives a rats ass about infrastructure so don’t worry about prop taxes.

What type of cheese would you like with your whine?

If it wasn’t for “whiners” Biscayne Bay would be dumped with nuclear waste on a daily basis.

I’ll attempt to answer your extremely ignorant and dumb comment with this.

You do know that nuclear waste has to be buried deep underground don’t you?

Yeah bc for 50 years from the 40s-90s it was dumped in the oceans util “whiners” highlighted the dangers, and dumpers began to bury it under ground. But appreciate the condescending attitude.. Much love!

Condescending… boy, you do love your whine.

You’re probably the only person who remembers when Biscayne Bay was once under consideration as a dumping site for nuclear waste.

Why millenials? What youngish person wants to live in Sunny Isles? You meant to say Russians that don’t have quite as much as the ones on the “other side of the tracks” 🙂

Millennials want to live in Wynwood and other Urban neighborhoods.

Millenials don’t all have the same set of interests and values, just like all other age groups.

The ones that want to be near the beach and bay–you know, the REAL reasons for living around here–will chose somewhere like this.

The pretentious Dbags that just want to be seen at trendy bars and restaurants and clubs, desperate to get laid, their place is Overtown–oops I mean “Wynwood”.

How many city officials do you need to pay off for that plan. 4 down already.

The restaurants next to Duffy’s are doing great. More of that. Many Young ppl want to be in urban areas

Across the bridge from the beach and Newport pier and across the street from Oleta River State Park. Lots of Millenials want outdoor recreation, and this has it in spades. There’s more to life for some than eating out and shopping. Or than sitting on a train playing with your phone.

Gil is that you?

how many millions and millions of millennials are there? and you talk about this huge group like they all want the same thing? geez. get a grip for crying out loud.

The millenials at my job all live in the western suburbs and drive pickups and SUV’s. They’re building home equity while these fools rent with roommates in overpriced downtown boxes so they can be seen at trendy locales.

Unless they are old millennials they probably are still living with their parents and wasting their equity on those large pickups and SUVs they don’t need.
