Gables Station Will Have An Outdoor ‘Urban Living Room’

Next to the Metrorail, a transit-oriented development called Gables Station is planned to have an “Urban Living Room,” open to the public.

According to the project website, the Living Room will be an open-air square reminiscent of public spaces in Rome, Barcelona and Paris. It will be lined with cafes and restaurants, and filled with palm trees, shade trees, and umbrella-covered seating.

The Underline, a park and pathway under the Metrorail, is also just steps away.

Gables Station will also include 434 apartments, 66 rooms extended-stay hotel rooms, 125,000 square feet of retail, and 1,000 parking spaces.

A small grocer is planned as part of the retail, and Life Time Fitness has signed a lease. Construction financing was obtained earlier this year.

Gensler and Jorge Hernandez are the architects.

Seems like the perfect fit for this lot, what more can you ask for?

This is great in-fill. Especially when the landrover dealership next door moves in!

“transit-oriented development…1,000 parking spaces”

Time to provide Miami developers with a dictionary.

If you think that this project can just survive on people using the Metrorail, then you need to look up the definition of the word “delusional” in the dictionary.

Maybe it’s going to be a public parking garage for folks who want to catch the Metro at Douglas Road.

We need more of this the other side of US-1, which will also encourage creating a better pedestrian environment.

Dodging 1000+ additional cars won’t help the experience.

Congratulations on completely missing the point. Google “road diet” to see how highways are turned into multi-modal thoroughfares without making traffic worse.

Come on lets get real here. A Subway and a couple of hot dog carts will not be reminiscent of Rome or Paris or Barcelona. There is nothing here, anywhere in this city (at least not yet) reminiscent of Rome or Paris or Barcelona. The only real “people” places we have are Lincoln Road, a couple of blocks in South Miami and a handful in the Grove. I really wish we had some more.

I hope you’re wrong, but you’re right as it is. The description sounds like Merrick Park.

That is the type of environment people who live that area consider to be cool and hip, so congratulations.
This is the type of development which encourage people to get rid of their cars and ride the metrorail.
Hope the Coconut Grove and South Miami wealthy “activists” don’t kill it.

Have news for you guys
As much as I love MIA, we’ll never have the vibe of Paris, Barcelona, Rome or any other city in Europe.
Even Lincoln Rd is not Las Ramblas

I didn’t know that it’s always been the objective of Miami to have the “vibe of Paris, Barcelona, Rome or any other city in Europe?”

Gee, who would’ve thought?
