Empira Group’s First Miami Buy Is an 85-Unit Residential Development Site

Zug, Switzerland-based Empira Group has closed on CoralGrove Brickell, a 0.53-acre, residential development site planned for 85 units located between Brickell and Coral Gables in Miami, FL.

Max La Cava, Simon Banke and Danielle Fernandez of JLL marketed the property on behalf of the seller, an investment group from South America.

CoralGrove Brickell will have a fitness center that incorporates spaces for yoga and spinning, a rooftop resort-style pool overlooking the city, a gourmet kitchen and a game room. The ground floor will have about 900 square feet of retail space.

CoralGrove Brickell, which is a five-minute walk from the Viscaya Metrorail Station, will promote walkable urban living. Future residents will be able to trade their cars for the Metrorail to travel around the tricounty area, committing the project to the highest ESG standards. The project will be LEED certified.
