GlobalPro Ventures is working on plans for two new projects in Allapattah and Coconut Grove.
The firm, led by Daniel Odess and Matthew Sengsourinh, is in the permitting process for the conversion of a six-unit townhouse building into an office building with ground-floor retail space, at 3139 Southwest 27th Avenue in Coconut Grove, the developers said.
GlobalPro Ventures acquired the units in late 2018, and plans to move its office to the building. The ground floor will include a roughly 500-square-foot retail/restaurant space.
The property is north of new condo projects, such as Terra’s Grove at Grand Bay and Terra and Related Group’s Park Grove, as well as Treo Group’s Regatta Harbour mixed-use development.
GlobalPro Ventures is also in the preconstruction phase for a mixed-use apartment building at 2560 Northwest 20th Street in Allapattah, Odess and Sengsourinh said, though they acknowledge that the past six weeks have slowed things down. Odess is also founder and CEO of the insurance company GlobalPro.
The developers said they are considering building live-work units in Allapattah, and plan to have co-working space in the lobby. The existing building is currently leased to retail tenants. GlobalPro Ventures acquired the property in October for $1.9 million, records show.
The site is zoned T6-8, which means that they can build up to eight stories high with about 70 to 80 units.
Allapattah has attracted big name developers, including Jorge Pérez, Moishe Mana and Lissette Calderon. Calderon is building a 192-unit apartment development called Allapattah 17 and a 323-unit apartment project called 16 Allapattah.
Mana has been assembling land on the eastern edge of Allapattah, just west of his Wynwood holdings. And developer Robert Wennett is planning a residential, office, retail and hotel project in Allapattah that will rise between Northwest 21st and 22nd streets, and between Northwest 13th and 12th avenues.
