The last vacant parcel of land along Miami Beach’s Indian Creek Drive could soon be developed into a 30-unit luxury condominium, featuring deep views into Biscayne Bay, private boat docks and a baywalk with public access along a pristine stretch of Biscayne Bay.

The project is being developed by 6800 Indian Creek LLC, which is managed by Optimum Development USA’s Ricardo Tabet.

Tabet received a variance from the Miami Beach Design Review Board on Tuesday to eliminate a residential liner requirement for parking – allowing for extensive landscaping, which Optimum and project architect Arquitectonica said is necessary as the first step in a design review process that could be completed by February.

The 30-unit project would have 66 parking spaces for a combined 95,420 square feet. The 1.1-acre site was bought for $11.25 million in 2014. The property was seized in a foreclosure proceeding in 2010 after a previous condo project at the site went into bankruptcy.

Bernardo Fort-Brescia, principal of Arquitectonica, told The Real Deal that all units will have both street and bay views out onto Biscayne Bay. “The challenge was to get all the units to look out onto what is the best position along Indian Creek, which is in the best position because it is right in the center between the two islands, [Allison and Normandy Isle].”

He said that he expects to limit subterranean parking to four feet to reduce the threat of flooding from sea level rise.

Tabet said the North Beach project will also have about 12 dock spaces, which he said significantly adds to the project’s value.

“We are going for a certain type of client that sees it as very special because it has docking space. That has added value,” he told TRD.  “We believe the quality we are building is very high and very elegant, and we are going for a certain type of client that sees that it is special.”

Tabet and Optimum are involved in several large projects in Miami Beach, including the Park Central Hotel in the 600 block of Ocean Drive, a retail project at 600 Collins Avenue, and commercial projects in Coconut Grove and the Brickell area.
