As we were reminded less than two weeks ago, Miami Beach is among the most vulnerable areas in South Florida to flooding and a city to monitor going forward as seas rise due to climate change.
Considering Miami is a Top 10 city at risk in terms of assets, developers are starting to focus on ways to better protect their properties in the future. Monad Terrace, which was expected to break ground months ago on the flood-friendly street of West Avenue, was designed to withstand heavy flooding due to its extra-elevated base and “reflection machine.”
This intriguing new construction at 5150 Cherokee Avenue, which listed in April asking $4.99 million, was also designed with flooding in mind.
The modern 4,763-square-foot home was built this year and neighbors the La Gorce Country Club golf course. It has four full en-suite bedrooms, two heated pools, and a two-car garage.
Upon ascending the exterior stairs and stepping inside, you’ll be welcomed to a great room that encompasses the gourmet kitchen, dining area, and living room. Floor-to-ceiling windows flank the room on opposite sides, allowing in tons of natural light for a unique indoor-outdoor experience.
The project was developed by Todd Michael Glaser and designed by Domo Studio.
