Two homes on exclusive Star Island in Miami Beach have uncertain futures: One owner is planning demolition, while the other wants to move his home. Both want to make way for brand new mansions.

Shay Kostiner is the owner of 44 Star Island Drive, a 7,000-square-foot mansion that was once owned by John Levi, a former mayor of Miami Beach and friend of pioneer Carl Fisher. Kostiner purchased the property in 2010 for $7.25 million.

Preservationists are upset about Kostiner’s plan to replace the home with a futuristic 24,000-square-foot mansion and have started a petition online to save the 1923 home, a publication reported.

The owner of 22 Star Island Drive, however, has reversed his plans to raze his home and instead wants to rotate it on his property, the Miami Herald reported.

Lennar CEO Stuart Miller wants to build a new 20,000-square-foot mansion in the newly created space, the newspaper reported.

The design review board will discuss these plans during its meeting Tuesday morning at Miami Beach City Hall. [Miami Herald]Sean Stewart-Muniz
