- Jan 13, 2014
The bayfront apartment buildings at 900 and 910 West Avenue will soon get a fresh look inside and out as ADD Inc. undertook a $40 million recovery of the community. Henrico, Va.-based Gumenick Properties owns and manages the complex. The improvements include 495 newly designed residential units, public areas, the addition of pool cabanas, retail spaces, a restaurant and a whole new facade. Completion is expected next year. Architect Jonathan Cardello, Principal – Director of ADD Inc. in Miami, is in charge of the renewal project.
ADD Inc, is an architecture and design firm with offices in Boston and Miami. More than 60 finished projects over the nation confirm the company’s success on their website. Workplace, mixed use, academic, retail, branding and residential designs add up to the majority of the portfolio. Their earlier South Florida architectural projects include the Gale South Beach and Shelborne South Beach hotels; Paramount Bay with Kravitz Design; Jade Signature with Herzog & de Meuron; The Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater; the Bayfront Amphitheater; BGT Partners’ global headquarters and the River Landing mixed use destination.
The new energized outdoor look will aggregate hurricane-proof windows with perforated aluminium screens and glass rails on the balconies painted white and blue. Indoors the apartment units along with the penthouses will get new carpets in the bedrooms, flush lighting, European-style cabinetry, washers/dryers and porcelain tile in the living areas and bathrooms. The three-bedroom penthouses will be enhanced with top-notch electrical appliances, stone kitchen counters and whirlpool tubs. Located between the two towers, the lobby will be completely redone by adding brand new upscale furniture, classy fixtures, a new hospitality lounge and improving it a with a glass wall that will provide an extensive view of the pool with the bay in the background. The ground-floor clubroom and the fitness center will also be renovated with the addition of a workout room for personal training or yoga.
