Developers of Metropica hosted a VIP event at its sales gallery in Sunrise complete with luxury cars and cocktails.

Last week, Avison Young was tapped to lease Metropica’s 550,000 square feet of office space. The 65-acre, master-planned community will include 150,000 square feet of Class A office space on top of street-level retail, as well as a 400,000-square-foot business park.

Altogether, KGH International Development, led by Joseph Kavana, is building the $1.5 billion development to include eight condo towers with 1,900 residential units, a health and wellness center, a beach club, public spaces, and elevated recreational amenities such as tennis courts and mini soccer fields. Chad Oppenheim is the lead designer.

Metropica will also be anchored by 400,000 square feet of retail with tenants like iPic Theaters, Kings Bowl, Anthropologie, Miami-based Salsa Fiesta and Free People. Construction is underway for the project’s first condo tower, Yoo at Metropica. The 28-story, 273-unit building broke ground in October, and received conditional Fannie Mae approval in January.

Kavana, chairman and CEO of KGH, along with director of development Erick Collazo, hosted the party with Lifestyle Media Group and Rick Case Auto Collection. – Katherine Kallergis and Sean Stewart-Muniz
