Estate Investment Group received city approval for the Soleste Alameda apartments in West Miami.
The Miami-based developer led by Robert Suris plans to begin construction of the 302-unit apartment project at 6290 and 6320 S.W. 8th Street within 30 days. The 1.9-acre site currently has a motel and a retail building, which would both be demolished.
The site is just south of Miami International Airport and just west of Coral Gables.
Soleste Alameda would have two mid-rise strictures as to avoid the closure of Southwest 63rd Avenue, which bisects the two parcels. Amenities will include a pool, a sundeck with a cabana, a lounge, a fitness club and a business center with a conference room.
“A successful development is a collaboration between many different parties,” Suris said. “Resident concerns play an important role throughout the process. Thanks to their input, we’re able to better tailor our communities to integrate with the neighborhood and offer a better living experience for current and future residents.”
Over the past 18 months, EIG and its development partners sold three recently completed apartment buildings in Miami-Dade County for a combined $177 million, including the sale of Soleste West Gables II in West Miami. EIG’s development pipeline includes the 99-unit Soleste Park View, the 338-unit Soleste Twenty2, the 330-unit Soleste Blue Lagoon, the 200-unit Soleste Bay Village and the 350-unit Soleste Grand Central.
