$100M Building Named For Julia Tuttle Now Under Construction With 323 ‘Attainable Luxury’ Apartments

Lissette Calderon’s Neology Life Development Group broke ground last week in Allapattah on a $100 million apartment complex called The Julia.

In a press release, Neology said The Julia is inspired by Miami’s founder, Julia Tuttle.

The 14-story Julia will include:

  • 323 apartment (one and two bedrooms)
  • 13,133 square feet of retail
  • 336 parking spaces

According to Neology, The Julia will feature a “tropics-meets-metropolis” aesthetic, combining elements of Art Deco with 1950s-style glam.

Interior common areas will feature neoclassical elements such as brass accents, wood details and colorful mosaics alongside bright, botanical patterned wallcoverings.

Amenities will include a ninth-floor Sky Lounge with resort-style pool deck, clubroom, and wellness center.

It is Neology’s second project in the Allapattah area – and a third is already being planned by the developer for groundbreaking within the next few months.

Neology’s first Allapattah project is located a few blocks away. Called No. 17 Residences, it includes 192 apartments which were 100% leased in “record time” after opening in May of 2021.

Behar Font is the The Julia’s architect.

Berkadia arranged construction financing, with Trez Capital originated a $78.19 million loan.

“Allapattah” and YES! Hopefully, more developers will look at this area. It might not be Brickell Luxury but can be attainable for working professionals in the Health District, Airport area and within 10 minutes from Downtown (15 with heavy traffic), Design District, and a short drive to the Beach. Nw 20th Street and 36th Street are the main arteries of this area. With dozens of vacant lots– they won’t be displacing anyone.

That is a great project, a short hop and a skip to the metrorail station, I wish there could be a parking reduction or that they would abolish parking minimums to see how many developers choose to forego it altogether, but it seems like they are not offering more than is needed.

I hope to see more of this type of projects continue along the north branch of the metrorail. I wonder if Hialeah has upzoned?

Wait until you see the interior on this project. This project will be beautiful. This developer is more lifestyle driven.

Art Deco, 1950s-style glam, and neoclassical elements. Hmmmmmmm….. Why not throw in some Rococo, Tudor, and Mediterranean Revival while you’re at it?!?

Considering it’s named after somebody who died in 1898, either or Victorian a la Royal Palm Hotel would be more fitting.

We need more projects like this in walkable distance from metrorail stations without garage parkings.

Construction materials have went up 40% minimum this year. We will see a huge slowdown in construction soon.

Art Deco and 1950s MiMo aesthetic inspiration and named after somebody who died in the 90s, meaning 1890s, plus a 1920s automobile? Why don’t they make a replica of an Al Capone speakeasy while they’re at it? It would be the ultimate irony, considering Tuttle was a prohibitionist.

Still, not bad for the area.

The Julia, sounds like it would be a gem of a building. Like an iconic luxury hotel or something…not this shit.
