Miami Beach’s Bentley Bay condominium might look a little fancier in the next two months.

The two-tower complex at 520 West Avenue is closing in on its May completion date for $1.5 million worth of renovations, courtesy of a New York design firm.

Bentley Bay’s condo association first announced its renovation plans in November, when its general contractor Eclipse Building Corp. sent out a release stating the building’s common areas would be getting a serious overhaul.

The total cost at that point was estimated at $500,000. But a new release from the association, which also announced the replacement of Eclipse, has the cost at triple that.

Among the touchups underway: a complete makeover for the north and south towers’ lobbies. That means Bentley Bay, built in 2005 is getting new floors, custom furniture, LED lighting, modern chandeliers and artwork.

The elevators are being outfitted with touchscreen controls, corridors are being refurbrished and designer Scott Davidson is putting in new landscaping.

Design firm Pembrooke & Ives is behind the renovation, and general contractor LAO Construction has stepped in to take Eclipse’s place. Sean Stewart-Muniz
