The desire to live and work in city centers throughout the world is often met with challenges in accessibility, mobility, and sustainability…until now. Location Ventures – a Miami-based, integrated real estate platform that delivers thoughtfully-designed and fully-connected residential and mixed-use projects – announced today the launch of residential sales for URBIN. A first-to-market, mixed-use brand, URBIN unites design-forward residences for short- or long-term rent with all-inclusive co-working spaces, wellness amenity programming, social activations, and lifestyle-oriented retail, all in one central address.
URBIN has initiated condo presales for its first location in Miami Beach, marking the first phase of the brand’s official launch with 60 percent pre-sold in the first 30 days. The launch of presales for a second location in Coconut Grove will immediately follow to meet growing demand. The brand will further scale with additional locations in key markets throughout the U.S., designing each to fit into the context of its carefully selected setting.
With exclusive sales and marketing representation by ONE Sotheby’s International Realty, URBIN presents turnkey units, designed in a collective living style. Priced from $400,000, residences will be available in diverse floor plans. In Miami Beach, studios will start at 275 square feet and expand to spacious multi-room residences that range from two- to four-bedrooms at up to 1,334 square feet. In Coconut Grove, residences range from studios at 331 square feet to six bedrooms at 2,352 square feet. Both locations will feature fewer than 100 units to allow for a tailored and more private living experience.
As an opportunity to own property in one of the world’s most sought destinations through URBIN, owners will have exclusive access to a lease-back program with the dual freedom to stay on property for up to 90 nights per year. While away, the residence is professionally managed by the brand and available for rent.
“URBIN celebrates a new way of living by bringing people together through home, work, and wellness in a single setting,” said Rishi Kapoor, CEO of Location Ventures. “Through integrating quality design, technology, wellness and social programming, we’re hoping to foster community and enable a high-quality of life in these city-centric ‘urban’ neighborhoods.”
URBIN residences will offer various layouts and provide a selection of shared spaces per unit, such as a common kitchen, dining and living area. The contemporary-designed condos are fully furnished and include efficient layouts to maximize space, while featuring high-end fixtures and Energy-Star stainless steel appliances, and plenty of storage space. Enticing, service-driven amenities, such as housekeeping, room service, and valet are complemented by on-site food and beverage venues; a wellness center with programming for mindfulness, movement, nourishment, and healing; and a rooftop pool deck with green spaces and lounge areas.
From owners of large enterprises to remote workers, URBIN’s co-working space brings a heightened level of service to the work experience. Members are given access to bespoke support tools, including consulting, administrative and networking, to further drive their business goals. Those who utilize the space are not required to live on property; however, members who both live and work at URBIN unlock exclusive rates.
URBIN Miami Beach, located at 1260 Washington Ave., is designed by Touzet Studio, led by Carlos Prio-Touzet and Jacqueline Gonzalez-Touzet. The building’s façade will complement the playful energy of Miami Beach, featuring geometric styles and colors found throughout the neighborhood with a nod to its Art Deco heritage. Its common area and amenity interiors are curated by Meyer Davis, the award-winning design studio from New York City. The property will undergo a complete renovation to the existing 33,488-square-foot site, in addition to the ground-up development of a 44,000-square-foot building.
URBIN’s second location is at 3162 Commodore Plaza in Coconut Grove, a less than five-minute walk from the newly-unveiled CocoWalk. Arquitectonica and Paredes Architects designed the exterior to integrate seamlessly with the contemporary new builds in the surrounding area. The residences will feature interior design by am studio, a boutique design collaborative committed to creating cohesive, resourceful, and oneiric spaces. The development of URBIN Coconut Grove will include the conversion of a nearly 33,000-square foot commercial building, roughly 5,000-square-foot restaurant, and 23,490-square-foot property, as well as a ground-up development.
URBIN will join the renaissance and expansion currently underway on Washington Avenue and Commodore Plaza – two streets situated in two of the city’s most thriving and in-demand districts. The sales launch of URBIN aims to reach both domestic and international investors attracted to South Florida by providing a unique live-work-well offering in the market.
