The North Miami Beach Planning & Zoning Board granted approval last week for an apartment tower called Venus.
Venus is proposed to rise 26 stories, with a total of around 660,000 square feet. It is planned to include:
- 440 rental apartments
- residential amenities including a pool and fitness center
- 11,000 square feet of retail
- 499 parking spaces
Burgos Lanza is the architect of record, with landscape architecture by Kimley-Horn.
A local artist will be commissioned to design a large-scale mural on the exterior of the parking structure at Venus, Developer Carpe Real Estate said.
Carpe purchased the 1.1-acre property at 2060 Northeast 164th Street in December 2021.
Construction on Venus is planned to begin in Q4 2022, a Carpe representative said.
Carpe, which is led by Managing Partners Erik Rutter and David Weitz, is also developing Wynwood Plaza with partner L&L Holdings. In addition, they developed The Oasis, and brought Spotify as a tenant to the office space there.
