According to various commercial real estate websites, the freestanding, waterfront building located at 3101 NE 7th Avenue, which houses the Amara at Paraiso restaurant by Chef Michael Schwartz, has been listed for sale for $20,000,000. The sale would include a lease transfer with Amara at Paraiso in place as the tenant. The prospectus for the sale of the property states that Amara at Paraiso has a 10-year lease in place with three options to renew their contract. The restaurant includes 6,445 square feet (4,513 interior square feet + 1,932 exterior square feet), seating for 209 people, boat access, and 24 valet parking spaces.
The two-story building also has a rooftop component called Paraiso Beach Club, and the sale of the property would include income generated from it. According to the prospectus, each unit owner of the four Paraiso condo towers (Gran Paraiso, One Paraiso, Paraiso Bay, and Paraiso Bayviews) is paying $750 per year in membership dues to the owner of the Paraiso Beach Club for the right to use it.
