Greystone Development, a New York-based real estate development company, and Alta Developers, today announced it has launched leasing at the highly-anticipated 2500 Biscayne building in the Edgewater district of Miami, FL. The glistening 19-story rental building boasts 156 residential units at the epicenter of the area’s burgeoning arts enclave and within close proximity to Biscayne Bay.
2500 Biscayne Boulevard is comprised of one- and two-bedroom units all with private outdoor space. The property boasts a thoughtful amenity package designed to cater to the active lifestyle of its residents with a pool, sundeck, lounge and game room, coffee bar, concierge, garage, and a fitness center. Leasing and Management is being handled by RIVERGATE KW Residential.
“2500 is a top property in one of Miami’s most desirable urban neighborhoods, and we are so excited to spearhead the leasing,” said Marcie Williams, President of RIVERGATE KW Residential. “We look forward to the opportunity to work with Greystone Development on this stunning community.”
Greystone curated a dream team of talent. Design visionary Architect Robert Behar of Behar Font & Partners envisioned a property that seamlessly integrated the historic alongside of the newly constructed, larger tower optimizing the footprint and also the experience for the resident. The homes Behar Font & Partners crafted maximize light, air and views with magnificent floor to ceiling windows. Floorplans are open and include a chef-inspired kitchen with quartz countertops, energy-efficient stainless-steel appliances, walk-in closets and in-unit washer dryers. RJ Heisenbottle imagined a restoration of the historic portion that would bring the structure back to its former glory.
Architect Robert Behar introduced Greystone to local artist and longtime family friend Magnus Sodamin. Parlaying off of the aesthetic that Behar Font established, Magnus created two exterior art murals spanning 75 and 90 feet wide. The murals take into consideration the culture and context of the surrounding neighborhood, pulsating with excitement and color. Through and through, 2500 Biscayne radiates light and vibrancy, offering the local market a truly unique product.
“Each successive Miami project that we take on becomes more exciting, and 2500 Biscayne brings a unique element to the Edgewater district with its ‘historical meets modern’ aesthetic,” said Jeffrey Simpson, head of Greystone Development. “We thank our partners in making the building a success, as the final result has exceeded our expectations. It’s a gorgeous addition to the neighborhood,” he added.
“2500 Biscayne pays tribute to the neighborhood’s roots by meticulously preserving the historical portion that reflects many of the signature architectural elements of the Mediterranean Revival Style,” said Jill Preschel, Vice President of Marketing, Greystone Development. “And with the modern addition of Magnus’ striking work on the exterior, the property makes a beautiful statement embracing the culture known to this area of Miami.”
Elsewhere in South Florida, Greystone is currently developing The Aura, a 14-story mixed-use apartment building designed by Borges + Associates Architects. Located at 1501 SW 37th Avenue, The Aura will feature 100 residences and 6,400 square feet of ground floor retail, with over 150 feet of frontage along a highly trafficked retail corridor.
