Another exMiami exclusive: Plans have been submitted by The Trump Group for a twin tower project in Sunny Isles called Palazzo Di Acqualina.
It will be built on the 5.6-acre Golden Strand property at 17901 Collins Avenue, just north of the two existing (one still under construction) Acqualina towers. Trump paid at least $100 million for the property, which was operating as a timeshare. The structures on the property, some of which date back to 1946, will be demolished.
A maximum of 448 units are permitted on the site, but the developer will instead be building 190 oversized units. The developer is building up to the maximum FAR permitted on the site (1,089,300 sf), as well as to the maximum height permitted (643 feet to top of aircraft warning lights, 649 feet above sea level).
In contrast to other developers in Sunny Isles who brought in world-famous architects, Trump is using local firm Cohen Freedman Encinosa & Associates – the same architect behind the polarizing design for the first two Acqualina buildings. The towers will be painted in colors that include ‘Oklahoma Wheat’ and ‘Roasted Sesame Seed.’
Elevations, floor plans and other details to be uploaded shortly.
