A “smart” rental tower with over 690 rental units is planned at 400 Biscayne.
Residents will have keyless entry to their apartments, and audio, video and thermostat control from an app on their phone. There will also be a co-working space, business center, and library.
Canada’s Greybrook Realty Partners and PMG are equity partners on the project, with Greybrook contributing $32m.
PMG has previously said that a second tower with condos will also be built on the 400 Biscayne site. Retail space and a rebuild of the First United Methodist Church currently on the site is also planned.
One block away, Greybrook and PMG are co-developing an ultra-luxury 1,049-foot condo tower at 300 Biscayne.
GREYBROOK REALTY PARTNERS MAKES AN INITIAL INVESTMENT OF CDN$40,484,720 IN A RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT PROJECT WITH PROPERTY MARKETS GROUP IN MIAMI, FLORIDA
OCTOBER 12, 2017
Greybrook Realty Partners Inc. announced today the successful closing of an initial equity investment by its managed issuer of CDN$40,484,720. On the scheduled closing date, the investment proceeds will be used to fund the acquisition and development of a prime parcel of land located in Miami Florida. Together with its developer partner, Property Markets Group (PMG), the firm will develop the land into a mixed-use multifamily residence consisting of over 690 units and 20,000 square feet of commercial space at grade.
The property is located within Miami’s rapidly growing Downtown Miami neighbourhood at 400 Biscayne Boulevard. The planned development will feature unobstructed waterfront views of Biscayne Bay, Miami Beach, South Beach and the Atlantic Ocean. The development site, which is adjacent to Bayside Marketplace, Bayfront Park and American Airlines Arena, will provide future tenants with convenient access to public transit, including the Brightline intercity rail system and everything Downtown Miami has to offer. The future site of one of the largest private master-planned projects in the United States, the Miami Worldcenter, is located one block northwest of the development. The Miami Worldcenter is expected to bring over one million square feet of luxury retail, dining and entertainment to the area once it is completed. Greybrook and PMG are also currently developing a nearby property, located at 300 Biscayne Boulevard, into an ultra-luxury residential condominium.
“We are thrilled to partner once again with PMG on our third investment offering in the South Florida market,” states Peter Politis, CEO of Greybrook Realty Partners. “The region is experiencing a shortage of high-quality rental inventory as supply is unable to meet the growing demand for rental accommodation. We believe that 400 Biscayne will provide an attractive rental offering featuring luxury amenities and efficient floorplans that are well-suited to millennials and students of the nearby Miami Dade College (which does not provide housing facilities for local or international students due to lack of available land nearby).”
The development will provide residents with an array of premium amenities, including: smart home features (keyless entry and audio, video and thermostat control via a mobile app); a large co-working space with integrated library and business centre; a fully-equipped fitness centre featuring a pool, a spa and a yoga studio; on-site bars; restaurants; retail shopping; and seamless wi-fi access throughout the building.
