New Rendering Released Of 36-Story Transit-Oriented Link At Douglas Tower, Groundbreaking Soon

A new rendering of the Link at Douglas project has been released.

Contractor Civic Construction uploaded the image to social media, along with a hashtag of the date January 2020 – perhaps a hint of when construction will begin.

The project has been billed as one of the biggest transit-oriented developments in Miami’s history.

One Link at Douglas tower is already rising, according to a Notice of Commencement filed in November. The filing states that a 22-story Class A apartment building with 312 units is now under construction. Corwil Architects is designing the tower.

The second tower will be 36 stories and designed by Arquitectonica. It will have 421 apartments, and more retail at the ground floor.

Eventually, the $600m project will include 1,421 apartments, 750 parking spaces, 251,873 square feet of office, and 25,000 square feet of retail.

13th Floor and Adler Group are the developers.

Good but both need retail at the bottom

I think this building that is going up right now is not even on the rendering. Its hidden in the back of the two larger buildings in the front.

That’s a good looking project!

Where is this project? Usually a map is part of each post.

On the Douglas Metrorail station

When is this all supposed to be completed?

Funny how the rendering tends to show NO (well, two cars to be exact) cars. This intersection – along with the one at 36 Street / North Miami Avenue in Midtown- are two of the busiest clusters of traffic in Miami.

The 36st/North Miami Ave is so bad because some of the lights don’t have an turning signal and the highway needs an additional ramp.

No to a very little amount of cars means an area is dead, an area that’s busy with cars means that it’s popping.

I think you mean pedestrians instead of cars

I meant cars. One of things people do is drive to happening places.. others catch the bus, while others ride the Metrorail if possible. Some people in this city must stop thinking that cars are some kind of evil and wicked contraption that was invented to destroy areas where people live.

Oh, right… this is the massive project that the developers snuck past the sleeping politicians and committees who realized only after they cashed the campaign contribribetion checks that the people of the neighborhood were screaming that this project is WAY out of scale for the neighborhood. But.. all the best.

The area around the Douglas Road Station is an urban center, not a suburban center.

Why don’t you tell the people in that neighborhood that this is not the sleepy little town of 1950’s and 60’s that they’re accustomed to anymore.

Where are the planners? This amount of parking should not be allowed next to a metro station!

MiamiArchi

What a terrible comment. you do realize that to make metro rail work people who come from areas with no metro will have to drive and park their cars at the metro stations.
So if metro stations had no parking spaces the amount of people being able to use that station would decrease dramatically.

Huh? Does the Metro station that’s been there for 30 years not work?

MiamiArchi

The metro Station had an existing large parking lot which is now being replaced by this building.
Same thing is happening for the Metro Station on 27th

.. and this will triple the number of spots. Next

Because the operational costs are more than the benefit that it provides.

This is replacing surface parking, so chill.

You have no clue. Exactly how many riders come and park here?

There must be something wrong with you.
There are 1,425 apartments,252,000 sq. feet of office space, and 25,000 sq. feet of retail. Do you even comprehend the size of the project?

Jeeezus, stop whining.. 750 parking spaces for 1,421 apartments, 251,873 square feet of office, and 25,000 square feet of retail is nothing.

Correct. If this was parked like Kendal, there would be 4 parking spaces for every sq ft of office.
1,000 spaces for just the office.

The planners are in their cars driving past you as you sit on a bus bench picking your nose.

No more parking next to the mass transit stations! I agree! We need to evolve! But then again, those parking podiums can be used as a way to fight against climate change! Make Miami Venice! No more cars! Bring them boats out!
