10-Acre Swimmable Lagoon Seen Under Construction At Solemia

Solemia’s swimmable lagoon appears to be under construction in a newly released aerial photo of the project site.

Also under construction are two residential rental towers with 398 units, a car dealership, and a new Costco. The old Costco site was recently bought by the developers, giving the project direct access to Biscayne Boulevard when it closes.

The 10-acre lagoon is the largest in America for Crystal Lagoons.

A massive shopping center is also part of the plans.

Enjoy your traffic chocked non-walkable community.

Just please don’t go complaining to the state for new and wider roadways..

Funny, aren’t you one of those “walking people?” This is a self contained community their building.

People like love to complain just for the sake of complaining.

Will the lagoon be open to the public?

10 acres would make one think so, but liability risk and South Florida lawyers push me to doubt it.

Regardless, there will be a fence, people will work their ways around it, and something bad will happen with a lawsuit entailing with repercussions.

Is this gonna be a public lagoon or for residents only? Please let it be open to the public.

By open to the public I meant can i pay to get in or do i have to strictly own a condo to use it.

Sure…so the development can lose the “excluisivity” of its amenities by making them public…I dont think so. If Soffer and LeFrak really wanted to make this site a community project open to the “public” they would’ve developed a public park instead of a Mixed-Use residential project….You wanna swim in their lagoon? great..buy a unit in their project so the developers can get back some of the 1.2Billion they spent building it !! $20 entry fees are not gonna cut it Bud…

Well, I feel sorry for the residents then. It’s going to cost a lot of $$$ to maintain and they’ll have sky high fees.

Beautiful towers, but is that a parking pedestal facing the lagoon?! Yes, parking is crucial even if this is utilized as a TOD (crossing Biscayne Boulevard is the only obstacle), but can’t a use better coordinating with the recreational area face it?

TOD? Are you nuts? The bus shelter on 6lane Biscayne doesn’t count as transit.

I think they are referring to a future FEC rail station but I haven’t seen one proposed near here.
