Modani Plan For Alton Road Store Approved – Minus The Red

Furniture retailer Modani gained approval this week to build a  two-story store with rooftop parking on Alton Road, but won’t be permitted to paint the building red.

The 10,000 square foot showroom would be built at 1790 Alton Road on land that has been vacant since an Amoco gas station was demolished. An Office Depot neighbors the property to the west.

Beilinson Gomez Architects is the project architect. Miami Beach’s Design Review Board approved the design earlier this week, but required the architect to switch from a building painted in red to a color that meets the standardized code of the city.
