Porsche Design Tower

A subcontractor that worked on Porsche Design Tower in Sunny Isles Beach is alleging Coastal Construction owes the firm at least $1.42 million in unpaid work and supplies.

Zarrella Construction, a Davie-based subcontractor, filed the suit in Miami-Dade County Circuit Court last month. Coastal allegedly failed to fully pay Zarrella for its work framing, insulating, drywalling and painting of Porsche Design, a 132-unit, 60-story building at 18555 Collins Avenue developed by Gil Dezer’s Dezer Development. Dezer is not mentioned in the lawsuit.

Zarrella’s lawyer Eric Neuman of Neuman Law said in a statement that Zarella completed its work on the Porsche Design Tower project “many months ago… since then, Zarrella has waited patiently for payment, while Coastal has repeatedly promised that payment would be forthcoming.”

This is at least the second lawsuit Coastal has faced from its work on the Porsche-branded luxury condo tower. In 2016, the construction company was named in a civil suit from a neighboring condo development, which alleged that construction caused damage to their building. A judge dismissed the case in April of this year with prejudice after the parties settled, according to court documents.

Coastal is one of South Florida’s biggest general contractors, and has worked on developments like the St. Regis Bal Harbour and Mansions at Acqualina.

Coastal declined to comment on the lawsuit.

Zarrella Construction was founded in 1998 and it claims to have worked on a number of large projects in South Florida, including Brickell City Centre, the Hyde Resort & Residences in Hollywood, and is currently working on One Thousand Museum in downtown Miami and the Ritz-Carlton Residences Sunny Isles Beach.

Dezer completed Porsche Design Tower in November 2016. The building is known for its “Dezervator,” a patented car elevator that takes residents up to their units in their cars.
