Man Made Lagoon Nearly Complete At SoleMia, 33-Story Condo Tower Planned

One of Miami’s biggest developments is about to open its first phase, and the developers are already planning additional buildings there, according to the Herald.

Solé Mia in North Miami will open its 184-acre “mini-city” next month, with twin 17-story rental apartment towers to begin move-ins in February.

A 33-story condo tower with 300 units is now in planning, along with another 7-story rental building, developer Richard LeFrak said. Eventually the project will have 4,000 residential units, 500,000 square feet of office and retail, a hotel, school, and other amenities.

A man made lagoon with its own sandy beach and island is also being built on the former superfund site.

Also opening there in February will be a new Costco, replacing a nearby location with a store that is 10 percent larger.

Arquitectonica designed the first two apartment towers, known as Shoreline at SoleMia.

 

The new man-made lagoon will have sailboats, kayaks, and an island. Photographed in December:
