Confirmed: A Trader Joe’s Is Being Built Next To The Underline Near Metrorail’s Douglas Station In Coral Gables

Trader Joe’s is now building a new store close to a Metrorail station in Coral Gables.

The new Trader Joe’s store is being built at Gables Station, a mixed-use project located a short distance from the Douglas Road Metrorail station.

Gables Station will include an outdoor section known as the Living Room lined with shops and restaurants.

According to a construction permit application filed with the city of Coral Gables in July and seen by The Next Miami, a total of 16,126 square feet of space is being built out for Trader Joe’s.

News of the store was first reported by Gables Insider.

The Metrorail station will be about a 10-minute walk from the new store. When the Underline is built, that walk should become much more pleasant (the developer is funding construction of the Underline).

There are also permits to build a Life Time Fitness and Graziano’s Restaurant at Gables Station.

Gables Station will include 495 apartments, 125,000 square feet of commercial (with 95,000 of that leased by Life Time), and 977 parking spaces.

One of the three apartment buildings will be run by Ollie, with upscale co-living units

Opening of Gables Station is scheduled for February 2021.

Awesome, I can hop on the metro rail from Brickell and be right there. Right now the two others Trader Joe’s are a bit of a drive.

You could also hop on the Metrorail to Dadeland South, where Trader Joe’s has been across the street for years.

Much more of a hassle, especially if one of short on time. Plus you have to deal with crossing US1 which is a nightmare on the best of occasions.

Push a button, wait for a crossing signal, walk across the street. It’s not that difficult.

Isn’t there another Trader Joe’s really close by? Oh well, at least it’s not another Publix.

Across from Dadeland yes. Being so far down US1 limits the amount of people willing to drive regularly to it. The new location is most likely to draw in people from Coral Gables, Coconut Grove and the Silver Bluff/Shenandoah area.

In Shenandoah, happy to see one coming this close. All of them are “far” from this area.

Unless the pin on the map is inaccurate, that is more like a 2-3 min walk from the Douglas Rd Metro station. It’s not 10-min.

Ten minute walk is to long!

In Miami 10 mins is nothing. Heck, there are some parking lots in local malls that take you 10 mins to walk to the entrance.

A ten minute walk is almost half a mile. I agree with you, it’s too long. If you’re coming down from Brickell on the metro you are adding 20 minutes to your grocery trip.

Well, why don’t you pick this person up and drop this person off and then do the opposite everytime they wanna go to this store since you’re so concerned about their comfort?
