Coming: 312 Ocean Park:

On preservation board agenda next month

UPDATE: The project was approved by the Miami Beach Historic Preservation Board on February 12, 2019.

Brazilian developer Jose Isaac Peres has filed an application to develop the two vacant lots at 304 and 312 Ocean Drive in Miami Beach. Plans call for a 10-unit, four-story multifamily residential building with no commercial accessory uses. 
 
Owner’s representative Neisen Kasdin of Akerman LLP wrote in the application letter to the Miami Beach Historic Preservation Board, the two buildings that previously existed on the site were demolished, the Biltmore Apartments following severe damage from Hurricane Wilma in 2005 and the Sea Spray Apartments in 2014 following an unsafe structure violation.
 
Kasdin wrote, “The project’s design was conceived with the idea of creating a recognizable building, capable of seamlessly merging with its surroundings while utilizing distinguishable elements and geometries of the Miami Beach endemic architectural landscape, such as curved balconies, eyebrows, delineated volumes and brise-soleils.”
 
“Additionally, to maintain the historic configuration of the city’s block pattern where, in this case, two separate buildings used to exist, two, 2-story cantilever brackets frame the Ocean Drive façade, creating a gap in the middle of the building that gives the impression of two separate volumes,” according to the letter. 
 
There are 20 parking spaces proposed which are only accessible through the alley according to Kasdin. The project will utilize some mechanical parking.
 
The development known as 312 Ocean Park is designed by Luis Revuelta.
 
Peres is a part-time resident of Miami Beach. He built the Il Villagio condominium and his latest project, 57 Ocean at 5775 Collins Avenue, is now under construction.
