Hundreds More Residents About To Move To Downtown Miami As Leasing Begins At Grand Station, Managed By A-Rod’s Company

Leasing has commenced at the 300-unit Grand Station tower in downtown Miami – and former baseball player Alex Rodriguez has become both an investor and a property manager for the new building.

“Downtown Miami was in immediate need of luxury housing that brought residents close to the city’s renowned amenities and transportation options that take them anywhere in South Florida,” said Rodriguez.

A-Rod’s Monument Real Estate Services will be the property manager.

The $70 million transit-oriented development is expected to be ready for move-ins this summer, the developer said late last month.

Net effective rents for residences studios start at $1,277, with one-bedrooms at $1,427 and two-bedrooms at $1,963.

The developer says the units will be Class A luxury apartments, with custom Italian cabinets, stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, walk-in closets and a full-size washer and dryer.

The project will include a “New York-inspired” rooftop terrace, an outdoor kitchen with grilling area and an oversized swimming pool with sun deck and several hot tubs.

An amenities deck will feature a fitness center, wellness treatment and spa rooms, an indoor heated soaking pool, a computer and business center, a clubroom, and an indoor-outdoor spa. There will also be  a concierge service, dog spa with pet station, bike storage and 24-hour package lockers.

Government Center’s Metrorail, Metromover and bus hubs, as well as MiamiCentral which features the tri-county rail service Brightline and will eventually include TriRail, are within a five-minute walk of the property.

Zyscovich Architects and Anillo, Toledo, Lopez LLC designed the building.

Rents appear cheap because of the apartment sizes. That 2 bedroom/2 bath for $1963 is 795 square feet.

How did you get that from the factual explanation that prices are lower because apartments are smaller?

It’s $2.47/sqft. Not too bad for the area but it depends on amenities. I get $1.90-2.15 in shorty neighborhoods.

Good point—I’ve seen studios that size—-that’s around the average size for a 1 bedroom.

Those rent terms are a bit deceiving.

I called the leasing office a few weeks ago, as I’m interested in moving downtown (been kinda tough to make it happed based on what rents are right now). For the one bedroom units marketed in the low $1400s price range, that’s just a move in promotion. It’s for the first 4 months, then the remaining 8 months goes to the “market rate” of $1750. All these millennials moving downtown paying these prices are absolutely having their parents pay their rent lol

I keep saying this! The pricing isn’t economically correct for our salaries in Miami (ie. housing shouldn’t be more than 30% of monthly income)

Lol or maybe us millennials just have a hustler mentality. Cause I’ll tell you one thing, I’m 28, live downtown paying $1,650 AND I pay my moms mortgage in homestead. We grew up Poor so I learned to hustle. You should do the same instead of knocking an entire generation that, for the most part, works their asses off for what they want.

Net rents but they don’t say the gross.

You mean added fees for trash, pets, parking, etc. that all the new rental communities seem to be tacking on today?

Nope. Net means they factor in free months and other concessions. Gross is the actual rent once these concessions are over.

I wonder what is exactly a ‘New York Inspired Rooftop’??? Are the balconies also ‘New York Inspired’? Can I get a unit with a ‘New York Inspired View’????

Sales people and their deceiving information. I was once offered a unit with a ‘private elevator’….Wow, my own elevator??? ‘ No sir, your own elevator lobby’….ummm, ok.

Why is the rent so cheap? With those prices it will get filled up quick.

you lure in the tenants with a good price upon their first lease and then steadily increase prices. If the rate increases arent too bad youll get tenants to occupy the property for longer.

Makes sense, typically new apartments would give one month free. theyre just dividing the one free month and lowering each 12 month lease rent.

Then why isn’t every apartment in Miami at these price levels?

Anonymous

Because every apartment building in Miami isn’t owned by this developer nor are they managed by A-Rod’s Real Estate Services.

I guess Supply and Demand has nothing to do with the price on rent.

Finally affordable rents which are at least $400 cheaper than the crappy Melo rentals. Melo needs to drop his prices if he wants to stay in business.

It will hold it back–“luxury” in Miami dictates balconies. Even non-lux buildings often have them. Only sales reps for non-balcony projects will disagree.
