Exciting Revival of Arbor Residences Gaining Momentum

Coconut Grove has undergone a renaissance, starting with the revitalization of CocoWalk, which has introduced new restaurants, parks, and attractions. The area’s prime location and walkability have increased residential demand and prices, positioning Arbor Residences as a key player. 

Arbor’s journey began in 2019 and hasn’t been without its challenges. Initially stalled due to financial difficulties, the project was revitalized when developer Isaac Kodsi stepped in. Kodsi, who started his career as an attorney and later turned into a real estate developer, is known for his ability to turn around troubled projects. Reflecting on his decision to reimburse previous buyers’ deposits, Kodsi stated, “Arbor presented a fresh challenge: a distressed developer, a lender who filed for foreclosure, and buyers at risk of losing their deposits. Taking decisive action, we acquired positions held by both the bank and the developer. We then refunded buyers’ deposits and released them from their contracts, providing a new beginning for everyone involved.” 

Arbor is a visionary development in Coconut Grove, offering a nurturing, enriching lifestyle. It’s designed to be more than just a home, providing residents with a welcoming haven where they can enjoy a vibrant community, live in comfort, and thrive. Set to be completed in Q1 2025, premium residences start at $1.6 million. 

Kodsi’s vision for Arbor is clear: “Our goal is to deliver Arbor to its fullest potential, ensuring it stands as a substantial building equipped with all the desired qualities and amenities envisioned by our customers. We aim to ensure buyer satisfaction and fulfillment in their new homes.” Kodsi highlights the significance of addressing buyers’ needs: “We honor and respect our customers by understanding their needs and providing products and services that reflect that respect, fostering both appreciation and loyalty.”

Offering 45 luxury residences, including two-to-four-bedroom homes, townhomes, and penthouses, Arbor combines elegance and comfort. It is designed to feel like a true home within a leafy residential retreat.  Located on one of the highest spots in South Florida, the project is less prone to flooding. This elevated location offers additional peace of mind to residents concerned about flood risks. 

Designed by the local firm Behar & Font, the property is inspired by the stunning natural surroundings of the famed bohemian enclave, featuring 10- to 20-foot ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, natural wood finishes, and wide-plank porcelain wood floors. The homes include spacious spa-inspired primary bedrooms, large closets, and chef-style kitchens equipped with gas ranges and custom kitchens by Italkraft. Despite being a five-story building, it boasts an impressive array of amenities. 

Arbor Residences stands out with its exquisite amenities, including a rooftop terrace with a bar and lounging space, a pool deck designed to always capture the sun-kissed essence of South Florida a state-of-the-art fitness center, social lounges, multiple barbeques, 24-hour concierge service, and valet parking. The convenience is priceless.  You can walk your child to school just down the street, enjoy a nice workout at the Kirk Munroe Tennis Center, go to a local cafe, lounge by the pool, meet friends or clients at CocoWalk or barbeque on the rooftop deck while watching the sunset. All this, just 10 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of urban life in Downtown Miami. At Arbor, you will find the quality of life, the paradise and peace you need to enjoy life to the fullest.

Developer Isaac Kodsi has selected Sandra Masis from Cervera Real Estate to lead sales for the residential development. Her specialized expertise in the Coconut Grove market uniquely positions Arbor to excel in selling this development. Sales for Arbor Residences launched in January, and as of April, 30% of the residents have been sold. The development has attracted local and international buyers from diverse backgrounds, including Singapore, Honduras, and England. Kodsi notes, “Given the diversity of our buyers, it’s important to highlight that this project is designed for everyone. As a Coconut Grove local, I can vouch for its walkability and the wide range of attractions it offers—from schools to casual and fine dining, as well as lifestyle and fitness options. The Grove’s convenient access to other neighborhoods makes it an ideal choice for a diverse group of residents.”

Arbor Residences is more than just a place to live; it’s a community that blends luxury with nature, offering a serene yet connected lifestyle in one of Miami’s most beloved neighborhoods. At Arbor, you will find the quality of life, paradise, and peace you need to enjoy life to the fullest.
