Kevin Maloney’s Property Markets Group (PMG) has announced it is partnering with Greybrook Securities, an exempt market dealer (EMD) that is licensed and regulated by the Ontario Securities Commission, on its forthcoming luxury property on Biscayne Boulevard.

According to The Real Deal, the Canadian company paid $37.37 million to be part of the two-acre project, which is slated to be the tallest property in the Magic City. The Haute 100 lister and real estate magnate said the new partnership can lead to more projects in the future with Greybrook Securities.

“We are pleased that Greybrook will be our partner in developing the next iconic residential development in the heart of Downtown Miami,” Maloney said. “The partnership marks a great milestone for the two companies to potentially work together on future endeavors.”

Sasha Cucuz, CEO of Greybrook Securities, said, “Downtown Miami has become increasingly competitive with Miami Beach as a sought-after residential, commercial, tourist and cultural hub. Miami is becoming a new global gateway market with the downtown Miami core at the epicenter of a city that has a growing financial sector and is the destination of choice for commerce and entertainment.”

Thus far, we know PMG paid $80 million, approximately $900 per square foot, for the 88,800-square-foot site in November of 2014. The property is in close proximity to Miami Worldcenter, which is scheduled to break ground by the first quarter of next year and All Aboard Florida’s MiamiCentral project, where site work is underway.

According to The Next Miami, the project will feature an apartment tower coined Vice, which will offer residential condos that target the millennial generation. There are plans for 464 small units, with the hopes of achieving a rental rate of $3 per square foot. Studios that are 530 square feet may rent for $1,650 per month, while one-bedrooms that are 600 square feet may rent for $1,800 per month. There will also be New York-style Junior 4s, in addition to two and three bedroom residences.

The property’s address is 300 Biscayne Boulevard.
