Plans have been submitted to demolish two historic homes on Sunset Island and replace them with a single home designed by Kobi Karp.
Diana Ulis and Alex Kleyner are the owners of the property that submitted the plans.
The pair purchased the two properties at 1753 and 1771 North View Drive through their Sunset Island Land Trust in September 2020 for a combined purchase price of $44.47 million. In total, the two properties have 73,091 square feet of land.
The owners replace submitted plans to demolish the two homes and replace them with a single home.
The design of the new home is described as modernist in a letter from the attorney of the property owners sent to planning officials.
The new home is proposed to have a total of 25,317 square feet of indoor space spread over four levels, with a garage and understory on the ground floor and outdoor rooftop lounge area.
There will also be a separate guest house next to a tennis court.
Both of the homes that will be demolished are considered by Miami Beach officials to be architecturally significant. Since they are historic, the new home is required to be reviewed by the Design Review Board before a construction permit can be issued.
