Updated: (The original version of this story said that Apeiron at The Jockey Club would be only 40 stories high. In fact, it will be 45 stories high.
Apeiron at The Jockey Club, a planned 45 story luxury tower has just been given an important go ahead, paving the way for the long awaited development to be built.
According to Curbed Miami, the Biscayne Shores Community Council voted 5-0 to approve the project.
While coming in at an impressive 45 stories, it will include 120 residences, a 90-room boutique hotel, a five-acre health and wellness facility, a deep-water marina, and several upgrades to the preexisting Jockey Club site according to Curbed Miami.
The official address for the site is 11111 Biscayne Boulevard.
It is being designed by the Pritzker Prize-winning architect Rafael Moneo.
Apeiron at the Jockey Club is Moneo’s first South Florida project.
It will still need additional approvals before construction can begin.
Sales are expected to open in 2018.
According to The Real Deal Miami, the project has been bogged down in litigation over the past few years because of disagreements over whether the developers of Apeiron at the Jockey Club had the right to build on the land.
The Jockey Club currently consists of three buildings built between 1971 and 1982.

Remember this lady?
Her name is Michelle Dobyne and she and her family live in an apartment complex in Tulsa, OK that recently experienced a fire in one of the units. As a result, power and heat for the entire complex was out for multiple days.
Not exactly headline news.
But the video of Dobyne’s humorous reaction went viral, although some have mentioned that perhaps it hasn’t gone viral for all the right reasons.
I mean just think about it.
Many, if not most of these viral local TV interviews are of African-American people who have just been involved in some sort of serious situation. And that serious situation is usually overshadowed by the reaction people on the Internet have to the reaction one person has to that serious situation.
Don’t believe me?
Or how about this?
Or this stupid story idea?
Instead of making fun of Dobyne and sharing a video that is borderline racist, why don’t you instead do something to help her and other folks at that apartment complex?
A woman in Tulsa named Tykebrean Princess McClain had the same idea and created a GoFundMe campaign that has so far raised nearly $17,000 to help get Dobyne and her children through this difficult time.
McClain wrote about her mission to help Dobyne on GoFundMe:
“She [Dobyne] is currently living in her car and she needs anything she can get to help her and her 3 kids ! Anything can help with them ! Even a dollar would be helpful ! God Bless ! This is amazing how much love there is in the world ! I met her Monday Night because I was watching the news and they said where she lived and that she would be in her car ! So after dinner me and my mom got in the car and had shoes and bags of clothes and blankets ready! We took her to dinner at Burger King and talked to her about her issues and saw how sweet she was and wanted to do this for her and she is so grateful to all of you! Kids are 3,5,6 ! Girls are 3 & 6! Pants 14 & XL !! And 5 is the boy and medium & 7!”

What Do You Think?
Many people have been concerned about how the Brexit will affect citizens on both sides of the debate in the UK.
Negotiations on trading, treaties, and even immigration will have to be redefined, and many people’s jobs and school careers could be challenged in the process.
The wizarding world is already facing obstacles in the aftermath of the Brexit
Berite Bott’s Every Flavored Beans Can No Longer Make Every Flavor
Due to Europe’s resentment towards the UK, they are no longer granting the jellybean company access to ingredients needed to make every flavor.
It looks like Bertie’s flavors like lemon and soap that were imported from France are now being replaced with UK accessible ingredients like spotted-dick and haggis.
The QWCA (Quidditch World Cup Association) Has Decided To Exclude The UK From Participating In All Future Tournaments
Hogwarts fears that fewer athletes will choose to attend their school if it no longer feeds into the professional league.
Professor Hooch has been sending her star players off to the wizarding school in Spain, but many of their UK fans are outraged by what they feel is an absolute betrayal.
“They have to play,” Hooch pleaded. “I don’t care what is happening with this country, my players have to make it”.
Gringots Has Gone Bankrupt
Now that so many of their wizards have had to pull their accounts and transfer to EU banks, the famous treasury has taken a huge blow.
Many homeless goblins have been seen wandering the streets of Hogsmeade with signs reading, “will work for access to Europe portkey”.
Students Are Disillusioned By The System
Hogwarts was expected to host the Triwizard tournament this year, but with previous fatal incidents, the Ministry of Magic was weary to grant them the opportunity.
Now, they’ve received word that Romania is refusing to lend them dragons for the competition, and students are feeling disheartened by the whole event now.
“It really is a shame”, said dragon handler, Charlie Weasley.
“I wish I could help my alma mater, but I have to due what’s best for my dragons,” Weasley told RISE NEWS. “Let’s face it, the Ministry of Magic has always underpaid us for our dragons, and at this point, the paperwork needed to bring them over is more than anyone can do in a lifetime”.
The Ministry Of Magic Is In Tatters And It Is Spreading Hate Worldwide
Wizarding leaders are divided between those that wish to host European wizards, and those that wish to push current ones out.
From across the pond, a Brexit advocate, Drump Trumpledore praised the UK for leaving what he calls, “the failing European Union”.
He commends them for “taking control”, and spews out rhetoric concerning his similar intentions for the wizarding world of the USA, (The Umbridge Sectumsempra Americas).
“We’re gonna put up a wall of dementors”, he told our reporters.
“But we’re gonna make Mexico pay for the charms we use to keep that wall strong”.
Trumpledore told citizens to protect themselves from immigrating wizards.
“If Americans want to feel safe and in control, they should go buy more wands,” Trumpledore said. “Good guys with wands stop bad guys from using their wands”.
When asked on her thoughts, J.K. Rowling mentioned her disappointment with the choice to leave the UK.
In her usual eloquence, she stated, “My values are not contained or proscribed by borders. The absence of a visa when I cross the channel has symbolic value to me. I might not be in my house, but I’m still in my hometown”.
It is a shame that villainous belief conjured up the majority of votes to cast out a union for the people.
It eradicated an identity that had been granted as a privilege to citizens of the UK and of Europe alike.
No one is truly clear on how this Brexit will affect the Western world, but everyone is anxious to find out.
The UK is in big trouble now that the Brexit has taken place, and Hogwarts worries whether it will remain a school for all young witches and wizards in the years to come.
For now, Bertie Bott is readapting his recipes, the dragons are staying in Romania, and Trumpledore is still a bigot and the source of annoyance for every intelligent mind on this side and on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean.

What Do You Think?
So if you are a valet, you probably shouldn’t take cars under your care out for a joyride or rev their engines until they CATCH ON FIRE.
But that is seemingly what happened on South Beach a few weeks ago according to Random Pixels.
From Random Pixels:
“Valet parker is handed the keys to a Lamborghini. He’s supposed to park it. Instead he takes it for a joy ride. Revs up the engine on Lincoln Road and Michigan Avenue. Car catches fire.”
Social media is always there for us though when we want to see the dumb things people have done in life.
