Groundwork

Sunny Isles Beach will get a touch of Mediterranean pizzazz when St Tropez goes up along the last undeveloped frontier in the resort city. Veteran developers Joseph Milton and Yosi Gil of J. Milton and Associates are planning four or five towers on the south side of  Sunny Isles Boulevard/ NE 163rd St. They own 1,200 feet on the water and envision a  Las Olas type urban center with mixed-use retail at street level and residential above.

Architect Kobi Karp has designed towers with three-bedroom units of 2,000 square feet targeted at buyers of primary homes, priced from $480,000 to $580,000. The developer plans to build three towers simultaneously, with ground breaking in January/February and construction expected to start in mid-summer 2005. They also announced that they will donate land for a public park, dockage for a water taxi and   facilities for the police marine patrol’s equipment. Altogether the plan calls for up to seven buildings, one of which will be Class A offices. .
