Instead of Miami Beach condos let’s focus on a slightly different type of Miami Beach real estate, in this case the Venetian Islands and more specifically Belle Isle. There are some new developments currently taking place in this small residential neighborhood but moving from development to actual construction is proving to be a little tricky.
Designers are seeking to build a pair of new apartment complexes near the northwest corner of Belle Isle to be located at 31 Venetian Way. The buildings would stand at five stories (54 feet high) and would include a total of 181 apartments available as new Miami Beach real estate complete with amenities such as a tennis court. The two new buildings would replace the existing Belle Isle Key Apartments, a slightly smaller building at three stories.
Local residents and city officials haven’t been entirely thrilled with the new idea, forcing the designers to tweak certain aspects of the building. The biggest concern is the uncommonly large size of the two buildings and to a lesser degree, traffic concerns. On July 6 the Miami Beach Design Review Board will evaluate the project; does it stand a chance of becoming the next desirable piece of Miami Beach real estate?
