Sunset Country & Western Wear, an 8,686-square-foot business in Miami’s Leisure City neighborhood, could get replaced with a workforce housing complex. The proposed Regatta Pointe would have 159 apartments divided between two four-story buildings.
The homes themselves would measure 637 square feet to 1,280 square feet, comprising one-bedroom to three-bedroom layout plans. Communal amenities include 174 surface parking spots, along with a dog wash, fitness center, and cyber café.
Unlike other apartment complexes in the region, the community would not feature a swimming pool. Onyx Housing Group is the developer. Led by Shadi Shomar, the Miami-based organization is only proposing plans for residential units at Regatta Pointe––not commercial or industrial aspects.
Onyx Housing Group currently has the 3.46-acre parcel under contract from two Cocoa Beach-based individuals. Behar Font & Partners is the architect. Conceptual renderings show a mid-rise housing development facing Southwest 296th Street and Old Dixie Highway. This aims to prove some space between Regatta Pointe and nearby single-family homes.
Javier V. Avino is the attorney representing the developer’s application. Regatta Pointe could get approval for 16300 SW 296th Street, Homestead, FL, 33033, in Miami-Dade County. The community would lie north of the Ronald Reagan Turnpike and south of South Dade Park.
