Palazzo Di Acqualina Approved, But Construction Is Years Away
Sunny Isles Beach commissioners approved the Trump family’s plan to build twin 51-story, 643-foot tall condo towers called Palazzo Di Acqualina at a meeting last week.
It could take six years to begin construction though. A lawyer representing the developer said that they would not have title to the property until late November 2017, due to a lengthy termination proceeding for the existing Golden Sands condominium on the site. The project is also planned to be phased, with each tower to begin sales and construction separately.
Commissioners granted an additional 48 months on top of the standard 24 months normally granted to obtain a construction permit, for a total of 72 months.
The property would be connected by bridge to the existing Acqualina property. Only 190 units are planned in the two towers, with two units on each typical floor.
