Karakhanian, through his Lndmrk, is a hefty investor in the Miami Design District. The company, through affiliates, bought the 3740 Northeast Second Avenue building in 2017 for $5.9 million. Dwntwn Realty ‘s Arellano and Marinoff represented the seller in that deal, as well.

Karakhanian also redeveloped the adjacent, seven-story property and sold it for $22 million in 2017 to Stockbridge Capital.

The Miami Design District is a hub for luxury retailers and restaurants. The redevelopment of the area, which is just north of Midtown Miami, was spearheaded by Craig Robins’s Dacra.

The district is in line to get its first new office building. A partnership between Dacra, L Catterton Real Estate and Brookfield Properties plan The Ursa at 30 Northeast 39th Street. The 15-story project will have about 180,000 square feet of office space on 10 stories, ground-floor retail, and a rooftop garden deck.
