Solé Mia’s The Shoreline starts leasing

If I set the SFBW wayback machine to July 2014, there was an article about the groundbreaking for Solé Mia, the $4 billion development in North Miami, in 2014. Now, it’s coming to fruition.

Residents are moving into The Shoreline, the first residential towers at the 184-acre master planned community.

One of their key amenities is another topic covered by the SFBW wayback machine: South Florida’s first crystal lagoon. While the lakes at most properties in South Florida can be murky,  the Crystal Lagoons technology uses a small amount of special chemicals that form a thin film on the top of the water, which prevents evaporation. It also keeps the water clean but without the massive amounts of chlorine that would be necessary for a swimming pool.

The seven-acre lagoon Laguna Solé is the size of 21 Olympic-sized pools and will have sandy beaches. Residents can swim, paddleboard and kayak or float on luxury loungers. Laguna Solé also has gently sloping beaches and a shallow area nestled next to a palm-fringed island with plenty of floats to play on, the developer says.

The Shoreline has an elevated pool deck and spa, an outdoor dining and grilling lounge, resort-style private cabanas and an air-conditioned poolside clubroom.  It also has a fitness center with Peloton bikes, a weight-training room, a yoga studio with Fitness on Demand and a 24/7 virtual workout-program platform. (This is the first time I’ve seen a South Florida developer say it is providing Fitness on Demand and Peleton bikes, which have started to be heavily advertised. The basic Peleton costs $2,245.)

Other amenities include two multi-purpose resident lounges, a pet-grooming area, a game room, 24/7 concierge services, a business center, parcel lockers with 24/7 access, electric-car charging stations, a bike-repair room and storage, as well as ample resident and guest covered parking, a press release said. Private storage spaces are also available. There are also outdoor fitness trails.

The Shoreline is offering studio, one, two, and three-bedroom rentals  from $1,700 to $3,700.

The Shoreline was designed by South Florida’s Arquitectonica and Robert M. Swedroe Architects. It has two 17-story towers with curves and soft lines that feature open floor plans, floor-to-ceiling windows, large bathrooms and expansive balconies. Among the views for residents are Laguna Solé, Oleta River State Park, Biscayne Bay, the Atlantic Ocean and the Miami skyline.

“The Shoreline’s 397 rental residences will provide long-awaited and amenity-rich luxury rental housing to North Miami,” said Richard LeFrak, Chairman and CEO of LeFrak. “This is a of one-of-a-kind opportunity for residents to experience resort-style living within a vibrant urban center. The quality of life at Sole Mia will be unmatched.”

Jackie and Jeffrey Sofer, known for ownership of Turnberry, the Fontainebleau and Aventura Mall have also been involved in the project.

The Shoreline is just the beginning of the residential boom at Solé Miami, which will have 4,000 residential units. Moreover, there will a village created with 1.5 million square feet of commercial space.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico.
