NMB Board Approves 26-Story Venus Apartment Tower With 440 Apartments

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.

North Miami Beach will be unrecognizable in about 10 to 25 years

If metrorail goes up there will explode as little river. Unique neighborhoods.

NMB is quietly growing and evolving into a very nice neighborhood

This is a very ugly building. I guess there’s a certain copy/paste architecture in South Florida? I particularly hate how the columns flare up at the top. Very 70’s and ugly.

What’s wrong with it? The windows and balconies all line up, and it has some nice curves. The mural might not turn as nice as proposed, but still a solid development. I’d like to see stuff like it in West Brickell, Little Havana, and Allapattah.

NMB is really trying to densify the area and I love that idea. Can’t wait to see more developments come in and see it really form it’s own downtown.

They’re destroying Miami one high rise at a time 🙁

Without adding density and housing supply, housing costs would skyrocket even more, and then many natives will have to relocate to more affordable areas.

Then they(and I) will have to move out. In the long run, this area cannot support more people. The fact that everything unique about Dade County is being destroyed in the process is nothing to celebrate.

I’m sure you would say the same if you lived in NYC in the 1890s or 1920s.

Yes… better hire Arquitectonica to recycle a ten-year-old box with juxtaposed balconies. LOL.

One buys a unit here, thinking “North Miami Beach” is close to the beach, and when they see it, it’s 2.5 miles from the beach.
