Miami Beach's SoleMia is moving ahead after completing the necessary road and site work needed to proceed with the development. SoleMia is a 183 acre, $4 billion megaproject by developers Jeffrey Soffer, Jackie Soffer and Richard LeFrak. The Soffer's Turberry Associates and LeFrak families are two of the oldest development families in Miami and have played a major roll in the evolving landscape of the city. The development will result in about 11 condo towers and retail surrounding two artificial ten-acre lagoons. They will start the project with 2, 200-unit residential condo towers located on Biscayne Bay which will break ground in early 2017. Two were previously built on the site in 2007 during the last development boom. The two new residential buildings are expected for completion in 2018. The retail part of the project will be known as SoleMia Mainstreet and will feature 400,000+ SF of retail including a grocery store, bowling alley, dine-in cinema, sporting goods store and restaurants.
