Aventura-based Apollo Cos. has proposed a 13-story apartment complex in Dania Beach.

First Dania Beach LLC, an affiliate of Apollo Cos., filed an application for a site plan and to build apartments under some of the remaining density in the city’s Regional Activity Center (RAC). The 101 Dania Beach apartments would go on the 1.89-acre site spanning nine parcels at 101 S.W. First St. Miami-based Liberty Base Investments is a partner with Apollo in the project.

The developer already owns five of those lots. It has the other four lots under contract from Robert R. Spiece Jr., Doreen Anne and John H. Bartley Jr., and Jack G. Fisher. All of them are single-family homes, but the zoning in the area permits multifamily development. The site is located a block west of U.S. 1 and a block north of Stirling Road, so it’s fairly close to the beaches and Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport.

The site plan calls for a 445,630-square-foot building with 278 apartments, an 880-square-foot café and 449 parking spaces. There would be live-work units on the ground floor that allow residents to establish businesses in their homes. Amenities would include a pool and bar on the roof, a dog wash, a fitness center and coworking space.

Attorney Javier L. Vazquez, of Berger Singerman in Miami, said he hopes to bring the project before the City Commission this summer.

“Dania Beach is a very hot market,” Vazquez said. “There’s an influx of folks moving here from New York and California that is driving demand for residential products through the roof … Dania Beach has exciting plans for First Avenue that will make it more pedestrian friendly, and this will align with that.”

Miami-based Caymares Martin designed the project. The apartments would range from 500 to 1,250 square feet. There would be eight live-work units, 37 studio apartments, 130 one-bedroom apartments, 84 two-bedroom apartments, and 19 three-bedroom apartments.
