Miami’s Urban Development Review Board signed off on waivers Wednesday requested by the developers of a Bentley hotel in Edgewater, as well as by Russian developers Vladislav Doronin and Oleg Baybakov for their Missoni Baia luxury tower.

Doronin and Baybakov are seeking city approval for one industrial loading berth instead of two commercial loading berths, extending the parking structure beyond 50 percent of the length or the height of the building’s pedestal, and widening the entrance to the parking area by more than 30 feet.

The developers teamed up with Missoni Baia to create the Italian fashion brand’s first residential project. The 649-foot, 57-story tower is going up at 700 Northeast 26th Street. The 146-unit building was designed by Asymptote Architecture and Revuelta Architecture, with landscaping by Swiss architect Enzo Enea and interiors by Paris Forino Design. Units range from two to four bedrooms and will each have private terraces overlooking Biscayne Bay and two parking spaces.

The review board also recommended approval for waivers requested by Quebec-based Heafey Group for its Bentley Edgewater Hotel and Residences, which is also to be branded as an Autograph Collection Hotel by Marriott. The waivers include reducing the spacing along the principal frontage to less than 60 feet and to substitute two small loading docks for a single large dock.

Kobi Karp designed the 32-story, 207-room tower, which is to be built at 410 Northeast 35th Terrace. It includes a sixth-story amenity and pool deck, a spa on the seventh floor, hotel rooms on floors 7-31 and 180 parking spaces on floors 2-5. It will also have a VIP lounge, restaurant and gym on the 32nd floor, according to marketing materials. Some units will have up to three bedrooms with floor-to-ceiling windows, nine-foot ceilings, and stainless steel appliances. To help move the penthouse units, the developer is offering options for a two-year lease for a Bentley.
