1700 blocks of Purdy Avenue and Bay Road, Sunset Harbour , South Beach
The developers of Eighteen Sunset, approved as a luxury residential building with retail and restaurant space in Miami Beach’s Sunset Harbour, are now proposing Class A office space as the primary use instead. Located at one of the entrances to the neighborhood in the 1700 blocks of Purdy Avenue and Bay Road, the project was approved in 2018 for 12 residential units, parking, and ground floor commercial space.
The new proposal submitted to the Miami Beach Planning Board includes two penthouse residences but replaces the other residential units with two floors of Class A office space. The building’s exterior design remains the same. Office space is a permitted use in the CD-2 zoning district but the Planning Board's order required approval of any modifications in use.
Another attraction, the large balconies and terraces in the approved plans which will be maintained. “We think that will be a unique amenity for office users and something that is not typically found in most Class A office products,” Colmer said. “Office users these days want to have that sort of ability for flex space, yoga on the deck, lifestyle amenities” which “we believe will be a strong selling point for the building.”
