Kobi Karp-Designed Mixed-Use Project Poised to Transform
City of North Miami Beach
NORTH MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (June 9, 2017)—On Thursday, June 8th, the North Miami Beach City Commission granted site plan approval for 5 Park, a mixed-use project at 16955-17071 West Dixie Highway. The project, developed by Macken Companies, Inc., is poised to transform the West Dixie Corridor in the City of North Miami Beach into a walkable, pedestrian-friendly destination where residents can live, work and play without depending on an automobile. 5 Park includes construction of two new 19-story residential rental buildings comprising 415 units in total and a 71,637 square-foot office complex. In addition, 30,210 square-feet of ground retail space is planned at the ground level to serve the local community with a new six-story parking garage and significant walkway and greenspace improvements.
Located on nearly three acres, the development will feature a contemporary urban design by Kobi Karp Architecture and create a pedestrian-friendly setting with a choice selection of new retailers that will serve its residents and its surrounding neighborhoods.
Residential units will comprise studios, one, two and three bedroom rental apartments averaging 878 SF. Many of the residential and office units will offer views of the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean. A sixth floor amenity deck located on the rooftop of the parking garage will cater to residents with a pool, cabanas, fitness center, clubroom and business center.
This project is in keeping the City of North Miami Beach’s comprehensive master plan to revitalize the City’s Downtown area and its major corridors in order to achieve a more vibrant downtown and help its major corridors to thrive. Through the City’s new zoning initiative, this project will also achieve the City’s goal to create a new mixed-use district in a key development location.
“I have lived here my entire life,” stated Alan S. Macken, principal, Macken Companies. “I went to elementary, junior high and high school right here. Our team looks forward to enhancing our community with a mixed-use project that promotes the ability to live, work, play and shop within the great City of North Miami Beach.”
The City Commission voted unaminously 7-0 in favor of the project. For more information, please contact Macken Companies at www.mackencompanies.com.
