Chad Oppenheim has been hired as the architect for Metropica Sunrise, a 65-acre development near the edge of the Everglades.
If built, the project could eventually include 2,500 residential condos and 300 townhouses. It is also approved for 650,000 square feet of office and 485,000 square feet of retail space.
Developers have said that they hope to begin construction on the initial 264-unit condo tower in the first quarter of 2015. A neighbor has filed suit over an easement agreement allowing shared use of land as an entrance to the property.
Also on the project team is landscape architect EDSA (1 Hotel South Beach), and interior design firm Yoo (Echo Brickell, Icon Brickell).
