down the street from the Miami-Dade College Wolfson Campus.
JMA has also just begun construction on X Las Olas, a mixed-use
development property in Fort Lauderdale for PMG Development. "With X Las Olas being our first project in Fort Lauderdale,
working with the city and surrounding neighbors to launch a
social hub that embodies the spirit of the area has been exciting,"
Shear says. "Fort Lauderdale is evolving and we are thrilled to be
creating a tech-forward, fun and convenient rental community
that will invigorate and embrace the community."
X Las Olas will include 1,200 residential units along the New
River and there will be about 40,000 square feet of retail and
entertainment space. Phase one of the project will include a
34-floor residential tower with about 639 units, including studios, one-bedroom units and two- to four-bedroom suites.
About 100,000 square feet of amenity spaces will be included
throughout the tower and rooftop. Amenities include co-working spaces, gym and fitness studio with frequent group classes,
communal kitchens, smart package lockers, dog runs and bike
storage facilities. Many suites will be available fully furnished.
An X Las Olas proprietary mobile app will enable key-less entry
and allow residents to manage their guest lists and access, adjust
smart thermostats, receive notifications about packages and
facilitate social events.
Groundbreaking on X Las Olas was held in January and
completion is expected in 2020. PMG expects to break ground on
a third project, the 700-unit tower X Biscayne, in Miami later this
year to add to its growing portfolio of X social communities.
Moving forward, JMA hopes to continue partnering with PMG
as the company continues to expand its X Social Communities
portfolio in south Florida and across the United States.
