BLUE LAGOON COMMUNITY GETS MUCH-NEEDED RENTAL DEVELOPMENT SOLESTE AND A NEW NAME
The Estate Companies, a leading developer of luxury multi-family projects throughout South Florida, has secured its certificate of occupancy (CO) for Soleste Blue Lagoon, a luxury, eight-story development with 330 rental units located at 5375 NW 7th Street in Miami.
The project broke ground in 2017 and move-ins began in October. Because Soleste Blue Lagoon is the only Class A market-rate project in the Blue Lagoon community, home to over 100 multinational companies, it quickly achieved 65 percent lease-up. The Blue Lagoon office community also recently announced a $10 million makeover and name change. The 250-acre office park will rebrand itself as the Waterford Business District, in order to remain competitive with Miami’s growing office market.
Tenants can select from a variety of studios, one, two and three-bedroom units outfitted with sleek, modern kitchens with custom cabinets, quartz countertops and designer lighting, dual master suites, spacious walk-in closets and private balconies overlooking Blue Lagoon Lake. Pricing starts in the $1,500’s for studios, $2,100’s for two-bedrooms, and $2,600’s for three-bedrooms.
“We are proud to deliver this transformative development to the Blue Lagoon area,” stated Robert Suris, managing principal, The Estate Companies. “Our firm is committed to developing beautiful and highly-amenitized communities at a competitive price point. This winning combination makes Soleste Blue Lagoon an attractive and dynamic option for high-quality, professional tenants.”
Like all projects within the Soleste Living brand portfolio, Soleste Blue Lagoon is curated with a vast collection of health and wellness offerings and social components, including a lakeside pool with spa, sundeck and private cabanas, co-ed spa with steam room and sauna, aerial yoga studio, state-of-the-art health and fitness club, spinning room with digital fitness instruction, rooftop garden with life-size chess, hammock and yoga lawn, and an electric car charging station.
This milestone comes on the heels of the firm’s grand opening of Soleste Twenty2, a 338-unit rental community, which is also experiencing high velocities at the current price points.
The Estate Companies is on track to deliver an additional 519 units this year with Soleste Alameda and Soleste Bay Village and has an additional 2,196 units in its pipeline slated for delivery early next year. Notable upcoming projects include Soleste Bay Village, Soleste Grand Central and Soleste Spring Gardens, among others. Its project portfolio features a mix of garden-style, mid-rise and high-rise rental developments in Dade and Broward counties.
