Terra and New Valley break ground on multifamily development

Nature and construction harmoniously combine at Terra and New Valley’s latest development.

The companies announced today that they have broken ground on 27-acre multifamily development Natura Gardens, garden-style rental apartments. Located at NW 170th Street between I-75 and Florida’s Turnpike, the development is inspired by the area’s natural surroundings, which will be complemented by lush landscaping, walking/running trails, open lawns, lakes and preserves.

The 460 units range from one- to three-bedrooms, measuring between 727 and 1,476 square feet in size. Residents will enjoy amenities such as two-story clubhouse with a resort-style pool and spa; a media room, game room and kids playroom; a children’s tot-lot play area with recreational equipment and electronics charging stations; a state-of-the-art fitness center with yoga, aerobics and spinning studios; co-working spaces and a coffee bar; and a residents-only dog park with site furnishings.

Terra and New Valley purchased the site from Prologis for $52 million in December 2019 with plans to build up to 1,400. Since then, the companies have decided to build one phase, selling the remaining two parcels to developers interested in the site. A sale of 45 acres to Butters Construction & Development and Greystar for $53.5 million is currently being completed.

“Northwest Miami-Dade is experiencing a surge of demand for new residential and commercial development, which is why we initially zeroed in on this parcel as a prime development site,” said Terra CEO David Martin. “Shortly after our JV announced plans for Natura Gardens, we were approached by several developers that shared our vision for bringing new housing options and infrastructure to this part of the County, and that opened the door to selling our originally planned second and third phases of the development site to Butters and Greystar. This is a good example of how forward-looking development that meets market demand can serve as a magnet for new investment in underserved areas.”

Natura Gardens is designed by Pascual, Perez, Kiliddjian Architecture. Vertical construction will begin in the spring with delivery anticipated for early 2022.

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. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran.
