Plans have just been filed with the county for a residential tower the former Starlite Motel property in Brickell.

Chicago-based Focus acquired the property in November 2022 for $28 million.

“Miami’s vibrant metropolis, with its walkable urban cores, offers a dynamic and energetic environment that aligns perfectly with our mission,” said Tim Anderson, CEO and Founder of Focus.

Demolition at the site was completed earlier this year, and the property was also recently approved to be included in Miami-Dade’s Rapid Transit Zoning area, allowing higher density.

On August 4, a pre-application was filed with Miami-Dade planners for the new building.

The tower is proposed to rise 39 stories, or 425 feet and include:

  • 516 residential units
  • ground-floor retail, and an office marked as “leasing/management”
  • indoor/outdoor and rooftop amenity spaces on level 8 and 39
  • 506 parking spaces in a six-level garage, masked by a perforated metal-panel system on three sides (with stucco on the east elevation facing an adjacent garage)

“Miami is an exceptional city, and we are honored to be a significant part of its transformation. Our focus on innovative design and thoughtful development allows us to create spaces that seamlessly integrate with Miami’s unique energy and urban charm, redefining the city’s landscape and contributing to its vibrant growth,” said Vicky Lee, Senior Vice President of Development at Focus.
