‘Responsible’ Condo Building At Former Kubik Site Features Large Units

An environmentally and socially responsible condo project is coming to the former Kubik site at 57th and Biscayne.

Green Dragon Group will build the project, called Fifty Seven, with large floor plans and high ceilings. Unit sizes will range from  2,200 to 4,700 square feet, with ceiling heights that are between 10 and 12 feet.

The project was first reported on by Curbed.

Green Dragon, managed by Carlos Cuevas, bought the 2.3-acre property in July for $15 million. A previous developer had plans approved in 2003 to build a 300-unit condominium project, but neighborhood activists delayed the development with lawsuits.

Sieger Suarez is the architect.
