The Miami Beach Design Review Board gave its unanimous approval on Tuesday to a waterfront condominium project that will fill in the last vacant parcel of land along Miami Beach’s Indian Creek Drive in North Beach.

The site to be developed by 6800 Indian Creek LLC, and managed by Optimum Development USA, will soon be transformed from a vacant lot 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.   

Miami Beach Design Review Board members on Tuesday approved a variance for a front pedestal stairway that will give the building a “wider entry with a more inviting pedestal front.”   

The 30-unit project will have 95,420 square feet. The 1.1-acre site was purchased for $11.25 million in March 2014. The property was seized in a foreclosure proceeding in 2010 after a previous condo project as the site went into bankruptcy.   

Miami-based Arquitectonica is designing the project.  Speaking in December at an initial presentation hearing, Bernardo Fort-Brescia, principal of Arquitectonica, told The Real Deal that the lot size presented design challenges. “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].  

The project is also expected to have about 12 docking spaces which the developers say significantly adds to the project’s value.
