First Look At Soleste Grand Central At Street Level

The 18-story Soleste Grand Central is now nearing completion in Overtown.

The project includes 360 rental apartments, with prices that are “approachable and affordable.”

The least expensive apartment listed for rent appears to be a 440 square foot unit for $1,401 per month, while the most expensive is a 1,085 square foot unit for $2,880.

The project was built in partnership with the Overtown/Park West Community Redevelopment Agency, which is requiring some units be set aside for affordable housing.

Amenities include an elevated pool deck, fitness center and spa, kids’ playroom, coworking space and residents lounge.

The ground floor has 6,500 square feet of retail. There’s also a garage with 438 parking spaces.

Caymares Martin is the architect.

Here is a first look at the sidewalk area in front of the new building.

Nice looking project, but 1400 for a studio isn’t exactly approachable for most people in Overtown…

True. And I guess it’s approachable relative to any other new towers in and around MWC. The fringe if you will…

Wide sidewalks! It can be done!

Though pretty anemic trees. Could have spring for some lightly more mature trees which will at least have a chance of survival.

But wide sidewalks!

Those are live oak trees. They are a pretty decent size, any bigger and the transplant shock could be to much to overcome. Give them 10-15 years and they’ll fill out nicely.

10-15 years is too lifetimes in Miami. Hopefully future construction doesn’t rip them out before they have a chance.

The ugly, irregular placement of balconies already made it look cheap.

Good to see it’s complete. Ready to see it filled with residents and the other three projects near it go up. Overtown needs this!

Every project built should have mandatory wide sidewalks to be approved… sidewalks that go all the way out to the road… no more little patches of grass just like I’m doing on Flagler!

Gentrification at its finest, at least make it look like the rendering.

Um, renderings are just renderings.. that’s why they’re called “renderings.”

If that’s the case, then maybe Waldorf Astoria is just a rendering.

^ Well Captain Obvious, concerning that proposal, if you see a finished Waldorf Astoria building right now, you need to sell the stuff you’re smoking.

lol what a joke they couldn’t even install glass balconies instead using out dated cheap metal rail that looks like its out of the 70’s. Their leasing agents are smoking too much overtown crack thinking someone will pay almost 1500 for a cell in a prison like building. PATHETIC

It’s 2021 and that’s the best you could do for a “luxury” property? What happened to the glass balconies? This building is giving me 1968, age 55 & up community.
