Pacific & Orient Properties has reached a construction milestone on the development of 7918 West Drive, a 21-story, 54-residence waterfront condominium development in Miami’s North Bay Village.
The last component of the building’s foundation and the third level of the tower have been completed. Additionally, concrete has been poured on the fourth level as well as the verticals (columns and shear walls) to the fifth level. Crews expect to pour the fifth level in early June. The foundation for the south section of the parking garage is completed as well and the estimated completion date for the development is the first half of 2025.
“The meticulous planning and execution of the construction process have been instrumental in achieving this milestone,” said Mr. Chan, CEO and managing director of Pacific & Orient Properties, LLC. “We are excited to be a part of the rediscovery that is happening in North Bay Village and to redefine the standards of waterfront living in North Bay Village.”
Thornton Residential is the general contractor, and Juan Azulay, founder and director of MTTR Management, is the project architect. The building’s lobby was designed by ONE DESIGNS Co. Ltd, a Tokyo-based multidisciplinary architectural design firm.
The first new residential project to break ground in North Bay Village in 10 years, 7918 West Drive offers Japanese-inspired culture with a Zen Garden, yoga space and water features.
