Apeiron at the Jockey Club, a planned luxury residential-hotel project for just north of Miami Shores, has received approval from the Biscayne Shores Community Council.
The unanimous 5-0 vote from a council comprised of area residents was reached after the zoning staff at the Miami-Dade County’s Department of Regulatory and Economic Resources provided a favorable recommendation, according to a press release by the development team.
The project includes 120 residences, a 90-room boutique hotel, a five-acre health and wellness facility, a deep-water marina, and several upgrades to the preexisting site.
Apeiron was designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Rafael Moneo and has been in the pipeline since the summer of 2015. The condo association representing residents of the three-building Jockey Club, which was constructed over 40 years ago, attempted to block Apeiron Miami. But the development team, comprised of Muayad Abbas, Horst Schulze, and Michael Bedner, prevailed last February.
Additional details for the development include a new dog park, a playground, a bayfront promenade, improved landscaping, and upgraded security. Located at 11111 Biscayne Boulevard, the project still requires building permits and is expected to launch sales next year.
“We’re excited and grateful to have earned the full support of our local community council, as well as the approval of Miami-Dade County’s zoning officials,” Abbas said. “Thanks to the efforts of the professional team that we’ve put together, we were able to achieve something that previous developers at this property couldn’t, so we’re very proud of the outcome.
“We now look forward to delivering a world-class project that will breathe new life into the Jockey Club and the broader Biscayne Shores area.”
