Developers Stambul, Miami Real Exposure and P & K Developments are bringing a 42,000-square-foot, mixed-use development called Eden to Miami’s Little River neighborhood.
Records show Miami-based companies 8045 NE 1 Avenue Properties and 79th Street Development bought the two parcel site at 235 and 237 Northeast 79th Street in May for $2.6 million. The entities share a 50 percent interest.
Eden will consist of four buildings offering restaurant, retail and office space. No leases have been signed yet, but rates are $18 per square foot to $35 per square foot, according to a spokesperson for Bloommiami. The development is slated to open in the the first quarter of 2018.
Bloommiami is the architect. The architect and design firm also worked with Stambul in the redevelopment of the Langford Hotel in Downtown Miami. Other projects Stambul is working on include redeveloping the 145-room Clarion Inn near the Galleria at Fort Lauderdale.
Compared to nearby communities like the Design District and the MiMo District, Little River has typically seen less development, but investors are starting to take notice.
Last year, Miami’s planning and zoning board approved Little River’s first restaurant with a full-service bar. The site at 7220 North Miami Avenue was a former car repair shop. The property, owned by Avra Jain and Matthew Vander Werff, will be a craft cocktail lounge and bar called Apollo Motors.
