Aventura ParkSquare is a new mixed-use development that spans 7.4 acres in Aventura, Fla. The recently completed development’s design places a heavy emphasis on wellness.

This wellness-centric design approach includes extra-wide sidewalks for enhanced walkability, open staircases to support less use of elevators, and the elimination of elevated curbs for greater accessibility. These elements help residents and visitors feel more connected to the shopping, dining, living, and working experiences the development offers.

Aventura ParkSquare’s 131 residences are housed in a luxury condominium that also features a Class A office component. The condominium provides amenities such as a sunrise pool, communal vegetable garden, summer kitchen, fitness center, and multipurpose social room.

Also included in the 1.2 million-sf development are 55,000 sf of ground-floor retail and restaurant space (which features stores such as Starbucks, Doc B’s, and BarTaco), a 45,000-sf medical center, a 10-story luxury senior living tower, and a 207-key Starwood Aloft Hotel. All of the ground-floor activity is centered around a tree-lined, interior main street that stretches two city blocks.
