SUNRISE, FL. | Metropica Sunrise | FT | FLOORS (7 Towers)

Renderings:






Quote:
The vision behind Metropica was to completely reimagine and redefine today’s modern urban lifestyle. Beyond luxury, beyond the latest in technology, beyond top-of-the-line amenities or enviable views... Metropica combines all this and more, creating a dynamic community where life takes place in all its many forms. You get a place where work and play and life all happen seamlessly, together. Metropica offers residents an intriguing array of regional and international cuisine, a curated collection of boutique shops and name-brand retailers, ample outdoor areas, shared community spaces, easy access to the rest of the city, and pedestrian-friendly planning that puts it all merely moments from home.

Metropica, we are proud to say, represents a revolution in human modernism, a movement that handcrafts new cities as destinations that are reflective of the increasing richness and integration of our everyday lives.

It’s not just a residence or a retail or corporate complex— Metropica is a new way of life.

Metropica is the modern iteration of a cultural, urban community, a self-contained yet well integrated neighborhood with access to South Florida’s allure where life is synonymous with work, play, learning and family. The thrill of Metropica is mere minutes from the pristine beaches of Fort Lauderdale, the headlining concerts at BB&T Center, and the exciting nightlife of Miami.

At Metropica, there exists a fluid functionality between residences, retail and recreation, from brainstorming at a board meeting to catching up over artisan coffee, walking lushly landscaped parks, and enjoying exciting entertainment.

Extra Info:

Quote:
SUNRISE — It's like nothing that has ever been built in South Florida.

Known as Metropica, the "city within a city" would have:

•More than 2,000 condos

•300 townhomes

•Enough commercial space to hold 11 Wal-Marts.


The massive, $1.5 billion project — nearly double the size of the neighboring Sawgrass Mills mall — would create the cornerstone of Broward County's new "Western Downtown."



Construction could start as soon as January, said Michael Moskowitz, an attorney for Metropica developer Joseph Kavana, of Miami.

It will take about 10 years and 5,000 construction workers to build the mammoth development.

Local real estate experts were stunned by the sheer size of the project.

"My mouth has dropped," said Jack McCabe, a real estate analyst in Deerfield Beach. "[The developer is] talking about 2,000 more condos in Sunrise and these aren't even waterfront."

In Broward County alone, 4,000 condo units are either under construction or have been announced for near future development, McCabe said.

"[The developer is] talking about 50 percent more than that in just one project," McCabe said. "I'm surprised as hell. It's almost like he wants to build a city within a city. With over 2,300 units, there would be 5,000 people living there."

Jonathan Kingsley, an executive with the commercial real estate services firm JLL in Boca Raton, can think of no other project like it in South Florida.

"It's an extremely ambitious concept," Kingsley said. "There was a mixed-use project announced in Aventura, but not to this scale."

This week, Broward commissioners gave the developer permission to build on an additional 9 acres of wetlands on the 50-acre parcel.

In return, the developer will dedicate $1 million to create 20 acres of wetlands at Long Key Nature Center in Davie. And it will give them more space to build, so the condo towers will not have to be as tall as anticipated.

Once built, Metropica would generate an estimated $22 million a year in taxes, with $5 million going to Broward County, Moskowitz said. The rest would go to the city of Sunrise, the school district and other taxing authorities.

If it's going to take 10 years to build this then it's already going to look dated by the time it's finished. I have a hard time believing the whole thing will ever be fully built.

And yea that parking garage seems like an iron curtain.

Florida has many multi-tower projects going on. They do get built, it just takes time. You'd be surprised how many high rises are actually in the state that many do not know of.

Yup, there are actually towers in this far flung suburb already plus the nation's 7th largest shopping mall.

The parking garage partition wouldn't bother me if they designed it to be a living wall with vertical plantings.

Overall, the community will feature the tallest towers in the county and will have 8 buildings, 2,083 condominiums, 300 townhouse style residences. Metropica will be considered "a city within a city", as it was built on a site of over 4 million square feet, will take about 10 years to complete, and require the participation of some 5,000 construction workers. For Families looking for single-family homes from 1,778 square feet at affordable prices, from $ 200,000, the Parc Central Community will be your choice.

Quote:

Broward’s Metropica to include 400K sf of retail, restaurants

Quote:

Sunrise Makes Way for Massive Mixed-Use Metropica

















Quote:
Talk about megaprojects, out in the burbs, Sunrise's Metropica—the 65-acre, mixed-use development—is one of the new goliaths of development projects coming to South Florida (see Downtown Doral. Brickell City Centre, Miami Worldcenter to name a few others). A design team consisting of architect Chad Oppenheim, landscape architect Enzo Enea and his firm EDSA, interior design firm Yoo Studio, and architectural design firm CI Design is collaborating to build a city-within-a-suburb that will be twice the size of the already gargantuan Sawgrass Mills Mall, across the street.

Metropica hopes to introduce urban, 'upscale' life into an area that Miami residents currently know as just a really long drive to find IKEA or 70% off Gucci. The concept behind the project is one that Oppenheim is celebrated for, "human modernism, a movement that handcrafts new cities as destinations that are reflective of the increasing richness and integration of our everyday lives," basically a fancy way of saying "mixed-use."

At four million square feet of retail, office, and residential space (has the size been emphasized enough?), Metropica will comprise eight residential towers, mini-soccer fields, a "central park," a private beach club (minus the beach!), and five-million dollars in transportation infrastructure (shuttle system included). It will have street-level retail in a pedestrian-oriented design. iPic, the luxe movie theatre with "personal butlers" and in-theatre dining is the first of retailers to announce their arrival. The price tag for the development team, KGH International Development partnering with Trillist Companies, is projected at around $1 billion.

Phase One of the monster project is the first of the residential towers, known as Yoo at Metropica, breaking ground this summer. Oppenheim and Yoo Studio, led by Philippe Starck, designed a surprisingly sleek 28-story building for Sunrise (considering nearby residents' hatred for the 26-story Tao, not sure how this will fly) and should be an attractive selling point for buyers and retailers. Hopefully the remaining seven towers get a similar treatment – without the purple drapes of Yoo's lobby.

Scott L. Leventhal from Trillist Companies says the buyers who have already purchased units are primarily from Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, and Mexico, and some American buyers. Leventhal attributes the heavy Latin interest from a perception that Broward County is much like Miami (oh boy) and believes Miami is expanding north. We're not so sure about that, but if you think views of the Everglades beat ocean views, maybe you're in luck. Yoo at Metropica's 263 units range between 740-1900 sq ft (one-, two-, and three-bedrooms) and will cost anywhere from $290k to $1 million.

Metropica breaks ground on YOO condo building

Quote:
The YOO at Metropica condominium broke ground on Tuesday as part of the massive mixed-use project in Sunrise.
The 28-story tower is being constructed by K Group Holdings and Trillist Cos. just west of the Sawgrass Mills mall. Most condo projects in South Florida are east of Interstate 95, so this is a good test to see how deep the market is for the stronger suburban neighborhoods.

The 263 units are priced starting in the $300,000s with penthouses selling for just under $1 million. The main floor plans are 740 square feet, 1,100 square feet and 1,300 square feet, with the penthouses averaging 1,900 square feet each. So they’re considerably less expensive than the new condos to the east, although they offer a view of the Everglades rather than the beach.

YOO at Metropica should be completed in 2017. The sales are being handled by ONE Sotheby’s International Realty.

Metropica, a $1.5B mixed-use project, aims to transform Sunrise’s corridor





Quote:
One developer aims to bring the city to the suburbs.

Metropica, a master-planned 65-acre, $1.5 billion high street project, is coming to Sunrise’s western corridor.

The mixed-use development, which is the first of its kind within South Florida’s western corridor, will soon make its debut in the heart of Sunrise, developer Joseph Kavana says.

Kavana, chairman and CEO of KGH International Development, is best known in Broward County’s real estate scene for his involvement in Jacaranda West in Plantation and Chapel Trail in Pembroke Pines.

Instead of making a residential property, Kavana has his eyes set on turning the western corridor into a city within a city.

Kavana says the development, which is designed by YOO Design Studio, Oppenheim Architecture, CI Design, and EDSA, is not just a destination, but a complete experience.

Metropica, one of the nation’s largest under-construction mixed-use communities, features 2,250 residential condominiums within its eight residential towers, 650,000 square feet of office space, and its own Central Park.

The development topped off its first residential tower, also called Metropica, in January 2018. Drivers can already see the 28-story tower from the Sawgrass Expressway.

Tower One, a residential building, will be completed by December 2018, Kavana says. The structure was topped off December 2017.

Tower One features one-bedroom units that start at $460,000, two-bedroom units priced at $480,000, and three-bedroom units that cost $580,000. The tower also includes 1,900-square-foot penthouses that cost $1.1 million and up.
