A mansion inspired by Miami’s midcentury modern architecture is set to rise on 412 West Dilido Drive in the Venetian Islands, with a Brazilian businessman purchasing the plot last week for $6.5 million, per the Real Deal.
Listing agent Dora Puig of Luxe Living Realty told The Real Deal that the seller, whom she declined to name, scored entitlements to build a contemporary mansion measuring 8,442 square feet several years ago. The approved plans show a home with seven bedrooms, seven-and-a-half bathrooms and an infinity-edge pool facing Biscayne Bay.
The home with 90 feet of water frontage faces west and is being designed by Max Strang. Unique to this property is the fact it was approved under an older zoning code, allowing for more lot coverage.
Plans include a rooftop deck, Ipe wood deck, floor-to-ceiling sliding doors. Here’s the project’s description from Strang’s website:
"Inspired by Miami’s midcentury modern residential architecture, the West Di Lido Residence allows the structural expression to provide the architectural identity for the home. A custom-designed system of operable wood louvers reinforces the subtropical setting for the home. The home is located on one of Miami’s private islands amidst the calm waters of Biscayne Bay.
