Avanti Residential Acquires Soleste Grand Central Apartment Complex in Miami for $181M

by Kristin Harlow

MIAMI — Avanti Residential has acquired Soleste Grand Central, a 360-unit luxury apartment complex in downtown Miami, for $181 million. The seller was The Estate Cos., which developed the property in 2021.

Located at 218 NW 8th St., Soleste Grand Central is walkable to various retail and dining options and features immediate access to I-95. Floor plans range from studios to three-bedroom units. Amenities include a fourth-floor pool, fitness center, yoga and spin studios, salon, dog park, clubroom, café, gaming lounge and a business center with individual coworking spaces and a conference room.

The acquisition marks Avanti’s fourth South Florida investment in the past year, following purchases in Boynton Beach, Doral and St. Petersburg. Avanti has now invested nearly $500 million in Florida and continues to actively seek Class A apartments in the state and other key markets nationwide.

“We continue to see strong fundamentals in several South Florida multifamily markets, where employment growth and migratory trends remain impactful demand generators in an already supply-constrained apartment sector,” says Christian Garner, president and CEO of Avanti.

Walker & Dunlop’s South Florida investment sales team, led by Still Hunter, brokered the sale.

Headquartered in Denver, Avanti is an investor and owner-operator of multifamily communities in the U.S. The Estate Cos., based in South Miami, focuses on development and investment opportunities for land and residential projects in South Florida.
