MIAMI, FL — RKW Residential added another luxury apartment community to its expanding South Florida portfolio. The premier multifamily management firm is now overseeing Lazul in North Miami Beach.
Developed by EDEN Multifamily, Lazul is an 8-story, 349-unit apartment building in the heart of North Miami Beach’s Town Center district. EDEN, the Miami-based joint venture formed by real estate industry veterans Jay Massirman and Jay Jacobson, completed the Class A building at 2145 Northeast 164th Street in October 2018.
Lazul includes studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, two-story townhomes, an eight-story parking garage and ground-floor commercial space. RKW has already secured 33 leases in its first five weeks overseeing the community,
“We had the opportunity to tour Lazul when it first opened and were blown away by the quality of the building, individual units and amenities,” RKW President Marcie Williams said. “RKW is thrilled to have the chance to play a direct role in the successful operation of this exceptional community. Lazul fills a void for high-end apartment product catering to professionals and families in North Miami Beach and nearby cities, including Aventura.”
Lazul’s amenities include an inner courtyard with a heated pool, an elevated sundeck seating area with a firepit, community rooms, automated package delivery system, a state-of-the-art fitness center with a yoga/spin room and a dog walk and grooming area. Common area Wi-Fi and large community gathering spaces are a dynamic feature of the community.
EDEN also enhanced the public greenspace along the Snake Creek Canal with extensive landscaping, public seating, a walking path/bikeway and a significant public art installation.
“Lazul is a crown jewel of our portfolio of successful urban infill multifamily developments,” EDEN’s Jacobson said. “It is also an important catalyst for the City of North Miami Beach and its revitalized Town Center district. With a top-tier management company like RKW at the helm, Lazul is in great hands.”
