Grand Living at Tamaya permits in review

171 senior units planned at Tamaya.

Permits are in review for the foundation and construction for Grand Living at Tamaya, a $40 million, 171-unit independent, assisted-living and memory-care development at northeast Kernan and Beach boulevards.

The city issued a permit Nov. 6 for site clearing and earth work at the 6.1-acre site at 3270 Tamaya Blvd. at a project cost of $354,330.

It is reviewing permits for the $28 million four-story, almost 200,000-square-foot construction project and $2.1 million for tree removal, excavation, grading, site utilities, footings and the foundation.

Ryan Companies US Inc. paid $3.3 million for the land in October, buying it from Tamaya Loan Acquisition Group LLC, whose managing member is associated with ICI Homes. Tamaya is an ICI Homes community.

Eric Anderson, Ryan Companies vice president of development for senior living, said construction should start by the end of November and be completed in spring 2019. 

Ryan Companies is a builder, designer and developer. It owns one-third interest in Grand Living Management, which is its strategic operating partner. Both are based in Minneapolis.

Grand Living at Tamaya is designed as an age-in-place community for its 137 units for independent and assisted-living residents. Memory-care residents would move to the 34-unit secure environment designed for those living with dementia.

Baymeadows Corner on the way

The city approved the permit to rebuild the former Miami Subs at 8355 Baymeadows Road into a shopping center called Baymeadows Corner.

The Malle Co. Inc. will build the project at a cost of $600,000, according to a permit issued Thursday.

Developers Paul and Louis Sleiman intend to rebuild the site as a 7,600-square-foot retail center comprising three units.

Realco Recycling Co. Inc. was approved Oct. 24 to demolish the 3,604-square-foot restaurant structure at a cost of $12,000.

The Sleimans, through Baymeadows Retail LLC, paid $812,500 for the property. Permits, plus the purchase price, total more than $1.4 million.

The property is designed for two retail stores of 2,500 and 3,000 square feet and a 2,100-square-foot restaurant. 

Paul Sleiman said T-Mobile will lease the 2,500-square-foot end unit. The restaurant is planned on the opposite end. He previously declined to comment about the additional tenants.

Construction should be completed in the first quarter.

Atlantic West shell is approved

The city approved the permit for DHP Construction LLC to build the 7,755-square-foot building shell on 1.05 acres at the Atlantic West property.

The shell cost is shown at $125,000.

Weingarten Realty and Sleiman Enterprises intend to develop the outparcel at southwest Atlantic and Kernan boulevards into shops that include Kay Jewelers. A spokeswoman said previously it should be completed for tenant build-out by the end of the year.

Development documents identify the tenants as Kay Jewelers, GNC and National Vision, which operates as Eyeglass World.

Weingarten Realty and Sleiman Enterprises are the owners and developers of Atlantic West, which is anchored by Kohl’s, T.J. Maxx, Shoe Carnival and HomeGoods. The new building is in front of Kohl’s.

Kay Jewelers is owned by Signet Jewelers. The location is about 3 miles from Regency Square Mall, where Kay also operates.

A Signet Jewelers spokesman said previously the company is targeting a winter opening for the new store and is evaluating the Regency Square Mall location, “as we do all of our retail locations.”
