AvalonBay Communities relies on DAR for SoMi Market
First Florida Constructors and AvalonBay Communities have entrusted the completion of doors, frames, hardware, millwork, & bath specialties to DAR Finish Specialties, Inc.
"AvalonBay Communities (NYSE: AVB) broke ground on an apartment complex in South Miami that will include a Fresh Market on the ground floor.
The property previously had a Winn-Dixie store.
AvalonBay is building 290 apartments and 31,000 square feet of retail, including a 27,000-square-foot grocery store. While the developer hasn’t disclosed the name of the grocery tenant, county records show that AvalonBay affiliate Avalon SoMi LLC signed a lease in May with Greensboro, North Carolina-based The Fresh Market for this location.
The nearest Fresh Market locations to South Miami are currently in Coconut Grove and Kendall.
'We’re thrilled to bring Avalon South Miami to the neighborhood and believe the district’s diverse and authentic mix of retailers creates an appealing living destination for individuals seeking a walkable neighborhood and true live-work-play environment,' said Mark Schrieber, director of development at AvalonBay.
The apartments will range from studios to three-bedroom units, and include some townhouses and two-story lofts with dedicated workspaces.
Amenities will include a lounge, workspace, private dining room, pool deck, fitness center and wellness terrace.
Miami-based First Florida is the general contractor on the project, which should be completed in late 2025. It was designed by Miami-based Corwil Architects." - By Brian Bandell – Real Estate Editor, South Florida Business Journal
