Miami-based developer Shoma Group is excited to announce Shoma Bay, a 2.8-acre mixed-use development planned for 1850 JFK Causeway in the thriving waterfront community of North Bay Village. Anchored by a 36,068-square-foot Publix, the project will boast a 21-story, 327-unit luxury apartment community and 6,315 square feet of retail space including a rooftop lounge and a Shoma Bazaar food hall. Residences range in size from 324-square-foot furnished micro studios to 1,435-square-foot three-bedroom units. A portion of the project will be workforce housing. Located on the corner of the 79th Street Causeway and East Treasure Drive, Shoma Bay is in proximity to nearby shopping, dining and schools, with direct access to the main highway that connects North Bay Village to Miami Beach and the MiMo District.

“North Bay Village is a hidden gem providing a respite from Miami’s metropolitan areas in the middle of Biscayne Bay and surrounded by beautiful water views all around,” said Masoud Shojaee, Shoma Group President and Chairman of the Board. “Shoma Bay offers modern, upscale apartments with resort-style amenities and all the essentials for daily life in one place. At Shoma Group, we understand the importance of mixed-use developments and the way they become essential amenities in the neighborhoods where they’re built, as we have seen from our highly successful mixed-use projects over the years.”

Residences will feature water views of Biscayne Bay, modern appliances and sleek and attractive finishes, with floor plans designed for maximal efficiency and comfort. Shoma Bay will feature an array of resort-style amenities for tenants including a 6,030-square-foot waterfront pool deck overlooking Biscayne Bay with a pool, cabanas and summer kitchen, as well as a resident lounge and bar, spa, fitness center with Technogym equipment, and kids club. It also offers a library, a 2,600-square-foot business lounge for co-working, and a sky lounge with a bar and areas for games and movies. As with Shoma’s other apartment communities, Shoma Bay will have a Pebbs Spa for dogs, named after the Shojaee’s beloved pup Pebbles, equipped with an Evolution Dog Wash system where canine residents can be shampooed, conditioned and blown dry. Residents will have assigned gated parking, electric vehicle charging stations, a designated bike room, and storage spaces. Shoma MGMT, led by Shoma Group’s CMO Stephanie Shojaee, will handle leasing and management for the property.

“We are thrilled to bring this mixed-use project to life during this time when there is overwhelming demand in the Miami market for brand new, luxury housing in a live-work-play setting,” said Stephanie. “We hand-selected every detail of Shoma Bay, from the gym equipment to the transforming, space-saving furniture in the micro units, to ensure the highest standards of quality, style and functionality and provide the best living experience we can offer. It will be a great asset to North Bay Village and we look forward to delivering it.”

Shoma Bay was designed by MSA Architects with interiors by renowned designer Adriana Hoyos. Shoma Bay’s streamline moderne style echoes the art deco architecture of the historic neighborhood, which became well known in the 1950s and 60s for its popular restaurants and nightlife, attracting celebrities like Frank Sinatra and Judy Garland. The development will rise on the site of what was once a nightclub by Rat Pack crooner Dean Martin in the 1960s and 70s.

North Bay Village is poised for a wave of new development in the upcoming months, with several nearby sites having recently been sold and plans for new residential and mixed-use projects in the village’s pipeline. The developer considers the area as a hidden gem in Miami and predicts that it will continue to attract new interest in the next year or two.

The development is slated to break ground this summer and reach completion in late 2023.

  1. The garage looks like “zaha-lite”……funny to see how the design style permeates the culture…..relatively benign development. Does every apartment get those particular bedside
    hanging lamps?
