Sono Development Group, based in South Florida, a proposed mixed-use tower that would bring co-living to the city's central business district.
Flux Architects took the lead on the design, constructing a 19-story, U-shaped tower on the nearly 1-acre site at 401 S. Rosalind Ave. At the corner of South Street and Rosalind, the design emphasizes ground-level activity with an outdoor covered dining area, a coffee shop/cocktail lounge, and two dining or retail bays.
Perforated metal panels would be used to screen the parking podium and act as a canvas for large paintings. White stucco with red brick accents and balconies with glass railings would be used on the outside. Rectangular gray parapets would emerge from the structure, giving it greater dimension.
On the sixth level, there would be two open-air terraces: one designated as a dog park, and the other as a wellness terrace for outdoor yoga and exercise. The planned coworking spaces and building amenities, including the 5,600-square-foot communal hall that opens out to the outdoor pool deck, are framed by floor-to-ceiling windows.
The company's objective is to immediately provide a downtown renting choice that is both affordable and flexible. Sodo's plan is to build largely three- and four-bedroom co-living homes, with occupants renting a private bedroom for about $1,000 per month (the exact number has not been confirmed as of yet).
This monthly fee would cover utilities, Wi-Fi, in-unit laundry, and weekly common area cleaning. Residents may schedule cleaning service for their own living area for an additional $25.
