The Miami-based real estate development firm, led by founder and CEO James Curnin, bought the buildings on 1.3 acres .Clara Homes plans to concurrently develop Clara Bay Harbor, which will consist of three six-story luxury apartment buildings on the recently acquired properties, as well as on two lots at 10281 West Bay Harbor Drive and 1147-1163 100th Street. The firm acquired the lots in October and March, respectively, for a combined $14.7 million. A lot owned by the town of Bay Harbor Islands that is in between the properties Clara Homes owns on Bay Harbor Drive will not impact the development.
Earlier this April , town officials approved a site plan for the first phase of Clara Bay Harbor at 10281 West Bay Harbor Drive. The project will have five residential floors with 28 units atop a ground-floor lobby and parking garage with 56 spaces. A rooftop recreational area will include a swimming pool, exercise area and sundeck. Construction is expected to begin in August with a target opening date of summer 2023.
The second site at 1147-1163 100th Street will be home to a building with 45 luxury apartments, spanning 145,000 square feet, the spokesperson said. The third building at 10200 and 10290 East Bay Harbor Drive will span 200,000 square feet and feature 77 luxury apartments with water views. The second and third buildings will each have a fitness center, children’s playroom and rooftop pool.
Monthly rent per square foot at Clara Bay Harbor probably will range from at least $5 a square foot to $7 a square foot. At $5 a square foot, monthly rent for a 1,300-square-foot apartment, the smallest in Clara Bay Harbor’s floor plans, would go for at least $6,500.
