Mixed-Use SoMi Station Planned At South Miami Metrorail Stop

A developer is planning an 8-story mixed-use project at the South Miami metrorail station after winning a county bid to develop it, according to the Herald.

SoMi Station will include 195,000 square feet of Class-A office space, ground floor retail, 99 units of student housing, and 650 parking spaces. A Loopnet listing gives an occupancy date of September 2018, with office rents at $33-$35 a foot.

Perkins & Will is the architect, and TREO Group is the developer.

The project is one of several transit-oriented developments planned along the track, as developers bet that residents would prefer to ditch their cars.
