URBIN was recently featured in South Florida Business Journal article titled “URBIN Condo, coworking project breaks ground in Miami Beach”.

From the South Florida Business Journal article:

Location Ventures has broken ground on the URBIN Miami Beach condo, coworking and wellness project.

The Coral Gables-based developer is building the six-story project at 1260 Washington Ave. It will feature 69 condos, 20,000 square feet of coworking space, a market, a rooftop bar and pool, and about 5,000 square feet of wellness amenities.

Locations Venture said the condos are fully sold out. They will range from 275- square-foot studios to 1,334 square feet with four bedrooms. The condos are designed in a co-living style, with separated bedrooms and shared kitchen, dining and living areas. The condo will permit both long-term and short-term rentals. It also has a program where owners could lease back the property and stay there up to 90 nights a year with professional management in house.

Prices ranged from $400,000 to $2.4 million.

URBIN Miami Beach was originally proposed as a co-living rental project before shifting to condos.

“Following immense sales interest, we are excited to initiate the construction process for the first URBIN location at a ripe moment in Miami Beach’s history,” said Rishi Kapoor, CEO of Location Ventures. “This property will infuse living, working and wellness into a singular location, while contributing to the quickly evolving, iconic Washington Avenue district.”

URBIN Miami Beach should be completed in 2025. Miami-based Winmar Construction is the general contractor and Miami-based Touzet Studio is the architect.

The developer purchased the 33,488-square-foot site in 2021 for $20 million. It is renovating an existing office building into the wellness and coworking center. It demolished a retail building in order to construct the condo.

Location Ventures plans to build the next URBIN project in Miami’s Coconut Grove, where it anticipates breaking ground in 2023.
