37-Story Apartment Tower Opening Before Year End Next To Metrorail Station

Pre-leasing is now underway for the transit-oriented Cascade apartment tower, with plans to open by the end of 2022.

The 37-story Cascade is opening at the Douglas Road Metrorail Station, as part of the seven-acre Link at Douglas.

Cascade is the tallest tower south of Brickell.

A total of 421 apartments are being built at Cascade.

One bedroom units start at $2,600 per month, with the smallest at 582 square feet.

A Milam’s Market will also open soon at Cascade’s ground floor.

CORE, a 22-story tower with 312 apartments and 6,000 feet of ground-floor retail, already opened at the complex last year.

Eventually, the masterplan for Link at Douglas calls for a total of 1,600 residential units, over 32,000 square feet of retail space, and a public plaza that connects with The Underline.

13th Floor Investments and Adler Development, in partnership with global investment manager Barings, are the developers.

Arquitectonica is the architect.

We’re not in Manhattan. Everyone just STOP referencing NYC on here. It’s just useless.

They keep doing it because they’re fakers that prob couldn’t hack it in NY and are now down here trying to reference it all the time so they can feel special. Same dudes that talk shhht all day down here but if you knew them back in NY they had no mouth and were introverts. But they come down here, balls apparently dropped, and can’t shut up with the comparisons as they feel it gains them respect in a new place where they can reboot their personality. I know the type – there are several of them on here who every 3rd word out of their mouth is ‘NY’. 🙂

This is what happens when you use a comparative alternative… somebody like Sim city playa injects a different subject into the conversation.

…a comparative alternative, you mean like how people in the real world think, such as “why pay $2600/mo miles from the beach overlooking a highway and a public housing project when I can be on the beach for $2600/mo?”

With the employment bubble starting to pop, the rent bubble won’t be far behind. Especially with the huge supply increase in rentals coming on line.

High rents lead to poverty.

Then why are areas with the lowest rent so impoverished?

Anonymous

Because the lowest rents in Dade county are actually really high considering the jobs in Miami don’t pay very well. Understood?

And the original commentator is not making any sense. The Metrorail already runs through Douglas and connects to the rest of the system.

I think he wants a new Metrorail line that runs directly from MIA down Douglas Rd. to the Douglas station. Yes, it sounds kinda pushy.

It’s what the area was zoned, so what should they expect? At least a better design, I suppose, which goes for anywhere.
