by John Nelson

MIAMI — The Miami-Dade Board of County Commissioners has officially approved Link at Douglas Station, a $464 million mixed-use, transit-oriented project at the Douglas Road Metrorail Station in south Miami. Link at Douglas Station will encompass approximately 970 residential units, including a workforce housing component; 70,000 square feet of retail space; a new hotel; and a public plaza. Miami-Dade executed a ground lease with Adler 13th Floor Douglas Station LP, a joint venture between 13th Floor Investments and Adler Group, setting the stage for the construction of the project, which will be constructed in four phases on a seven-acre site bordered by US 1, S.W. 27th Avenue, Peacock Avenue and S.W. 38th Avenue. Phase I will focus on the development of a residential tower, a 150-key hotel in partnership with Driftwood Hospitality Management LLC and a portion of the retail footprint, which includes a supermarket. Link at Douglas will maintain the Douglas Metrorail Station as its central element, providing access to Miami’s downtown financial, arts and entertainment districts. According to the joint venture, the project will be designed to increase public transit ridership.
