Miami's billionaire developer has 2 towers that broke ground in April 2021 and Jorge Perez is doing something way outside the box.  He's renting the first two towers!   Apartments will rent for ~$3 per square foot, ranging from about $2,700 for a one-bedroom unit to "well over $10,000" for a top-of-the-line, 3,000-square-foot penthouse. 

Will he really rent all 399 units in the first two towers or convert to sales after the towers are completed and you can physically walk through them? 

The site is approved for 6 Towers total and you can see them from the pool deck at Marina Grande.

A Restaurant is Proposed for the Old Crab Pot Site


A Tiki Bar was Originally on this Lot

The vacant lot at the south corner of Marina Grande was previously home to the Crab Pot restaurant and it sold during the 2005 real estate boom for $3.076M.  The new owner tore the landmark restaurant down because they were planning to build a 16 story residential tower.  Unfortunately, the market crashed and the lot has been sitting vacant ever since.   The vacant parcel sold again in 2015 for $575,000 and the latest proposal is...another restaurant!

If Marina Grande residents and the new owner can work together on the design, this could turn out to be a phenomenal amenity for residents.  Imagine a mini Sailfish Marina (with boat docks) that you can walk to for dinner. 

I decided to survey realtors who have listed / sold in Marina Grande for their opinion on a restaurant / tiki bar versus building a high rise condo (would block ocean views from the pool deck).
SURVEY RESULTS: 75% prefer to see a restaurant / tiki bar and over 80% would take a prospective client there for lunch.

All of the buyers that purchased my listings in 2018 are looking forward to a tiki bar.

This unit is located in the sunny southeast corner of the building and originally sold for $715,000 in 2006.  The seller finished the inside with beautiful marble floors in all rooms, crown molding and pre-wired it for a surround sound system.  The penthouses have balconies that extend the full width of the unit, taller ceilings and taller sliding doors (10 feet).  In addition, this corner location has an extra wall of south facing widows which makes it feel much larger than the interior units.
