The Miami Beach Planning Board on Tuesday approved a new four-story commercial development for 929 Alton Road.

The 50,000-square-foot project previously came before the board in November, but was pushed back due to concerns. The developer is Alton Sobe LLC, which records show is led by Dominique Nameche.

The development is zoned in CD-2, which is located on the east side of Alton Road, west of the Flamingo Park Local Historic District. Previously, the Flamingo Park Historical District was expanded to protect the character of the National Register Historical District, which is adjacent to the properties along Alton Road.

While in most areas of Miami Beach, commercial zoning districts are separated from residential areas by a street or alley, there is nothing separating the rear of 929 Alton Road from the residential area. Board members raised the concern that commercial space in such close proximity to residential areas could result in increased traffic, reduced parking, and noise.

The updated plan of 929 Alton Road would include textured paving to reduce noise and more landscaping in the rear of the building to create a visual buffer between the neighbors. Other proposed initiatives aimed to help reduce noise and neighborhood disturbances include locking the outer parking spots at 9 p.m. every night, and closing the parking garage at midnight.

“We’re taking a leap of faith here,” said neighborhood resident Mark Needle. He said the developer has been “collaborative” with the community on making sure there will be no disturbances.
