As part of the 184-acre local development, named Solé Mia, the LeFrak and Soffer real estate families have created a manmade lagoon to anchor The Shoreline, a pair of glitzy residential buildings. The seven-acre body of water, named Laguna Solé, is 12 feet deep and made to mirror the water of the Caribbean Sea.

To make it like a real beach, the lagoon also has a small island in the middle. The development will provide paddle boards, kayaks and loungers for residents.

“Laguna Solé, a one-of-a-kind residential amenity, offers residents at The Shoreline the chance to experience waterfront living and a idyllic beach lifestyle without having to be on the ocean,” Richard LeFrak, Chairman and CEO of LeFrak, told Inman in an email. “Residents are captivated by the resort-style living at the Shoreline and it’s expansive and luxurious amenity package.”

Laguna Solé was designed as an outdoor swimming space for residents of The Shoreline, a two-building complex of residential rentals that cost from $1,700 to $3,700.

The idea, according to the developers, was to offer residents access to a private beach. Over the years, luxury towers have played around with offering different kinds of perks to its residents — several similar lagoons are being planned across the country while one Chicago tower promised residents a car-sharing garage full of Tesla vehicles.
