Overtown’s New Luxury Apartment Building Soleste Grand Central Already 93% Leased

A major new luxury apartment project in Overtown called Soleste Grand Central is quickly filling up, shortly after it opened.

Co-developers The Estate Companies and PTM Partners announced this week that their project is now complete.

More than 93% of apartments have been leased, and tenants have begun to move in, they said.

The 18-story project includes 360 apartments. Of those, 20% have been reserved for for workforce housing with the remaining units offered at market rate.

The developers also said that Soleste is the first large-scale ground-up opportunity zone development to be delivered in Miami-Dade County.

Soleste is also a transit-oriented development, they said. It is in close proximity to Brightline’s MiamiCentral Station, Metrorail, Metromover, and soon, a new Tri-Rail commuter rail station.

Michael Tillman, CEO and CIO of PTM Partners, said Soleste was a “Class-A product at a price point that is accessible to renters who have been priced out of many other recent new Class-A developments in Miami.”

Apartments range in size from approximately 442 to 1,082 square feet. Prices previously advertised on Soleste’s website ranged from $1,401 to $2,880.

The building also has nearly an acre of indoor and outdoor amenity space.

Overtown should push for jazz bars and blues clubs plus soul food restaurants. It would be nice to have a party neighborhood with jazz/blues themes to honor the rich history of Overtown.

That would so cool. Basically a new Wynwood but instead of focusing on graffiti arts and hippy crowd, it could be a more sophisticated crowd that goes in for jazz, blues and soul food. It would be a neighborhood Miami doesn’t have yet so it would be unique and classy.

Yeah ok. We want the classy version of soul food not the off-the-street version. Just like in Wynwood you go to fancy Asian cuisine places and not a cheap Chinese take out place of in Brickell you go to a fancy pizzeria and not Pizza Rustica.

If local businesses turn their places into businesses that cater to a 2021 crowd, sure. You can’t expect people to want to go into run down businesses. It’s not about race but about getting your money worth. I love Italian food but I wouldn’t go into a run down Italian place, I still would choose something like Cipriani for my night out.

Joe’s Stone Crab is not modern. They probably have more blacks working there than any “Black Business” in Overtown.
The restaurant is well run, and all the employees take pride in their work.

I like to patronize restaurants where they employ the best of the best and the staff takes pride in their work. Color means nothing.

Ah, no that’s not it. Businesses routinely adapt to changing customer expectations. If you look at the restaurants north of 110th St. in Manhattan, you’ll find plenty of local black businesses that serve a wide range of customers. The amount of money that can be invested in the restaurant spaces and spent on ingredients and prep increases as the prosperity of the client base does. This is not a bad thing. Also, what might draw a lunch crowd isn’t necessarily what will draw a couple for “date night.”

Why race has to be coming all the time … 🤔
you patronize a business, period!! 🤗

.. if you start doing that, base on race ita racist !!

I have a dream that people will be judged by their characters and not the color of their skin!! MLK Jr

Same with restaurants… judge by the quality of the food, the price and how clean its, not by the owner’s color !!!

My experience in NYC is most jazz concerts and clubs are patronized by mostly white people. I’m not saying it’s always like that, just most of the time.

Your tone deaf and part of the problem. Overtown is a historically black neighborhood. Now the colonizers wants to come in and interject their version of jazz and soul and sophistication so they will feel comfortable. Of course no one mentions when black entertaiomers were entertaining whitey, these entertainers werent allowed to stay on the beach and stayed in Overtown. And the real reason race is mentioned so much is because Amerikkka is inherently racist! Wake up, read, learn history before you speak!

Folks, we are witnessing a mental illness and social decay unlike anything I ever dreamed possible. A society in which we’re gaslit to think that it’s WRONG to patronize a business based on your personal experience and preference of said business.

People of color, please hear me – The media and politicians are DOING THIS TO YOUR BRAINS ON PURPOSE. They are assuming you are not smart enough to use logic and manipulating your emotions. To truly make you believe you have to support somebody because of their skin color, in spite of their merit, has put you right back in mental and emotional chains – they own you and your decisions and your money.

I love hip hop but let’s face it, it would bring in a ghetto crowd. We all know it, you know it too. We aren’t talking race here because clearly we are advocating for jazz and blues, which are also mainly black. You sound like a racist because you are grouping all black people into one group.

When was the last time you saw a fight break out at a jazz or classical music event? You’d be hard pressed to even see an argument at these spots. Hip-hop club or concert, you gotta always be on the look out for some stupid $$$$ going down.

Most inner cities and minority communities have leaders of their own ( blacks, Latinos) back from the sixties …until the present ..

leaders like Maxim Watters in LA and Elijah Cummins in Baltimore , they have done nothing but to get rich, and have houses on the other side of town !!

But those communities still voting for the same leaders that now blame their failures to inequality, lack of equity and racism!!! ! 🤓

Historic Overtown already has many Soul Food Restaurants and Jackson Soul Food and green house, and others. International renowned Chef of Red Rooster Marcus Samuelsson. I agree jazz clubs would be great to have, the Black Archives has many events in thier faculties. Plus you got Wynwood only a couple blocks north of Historic Overtown 2 lots of live entertainment

All these comments are funny. I worked at my uncles store on NW 14 Street and NW 2nd Ave from 2001-2010. You hipsters wouldn’t of stepped into Overtown during that period. I remember the metro rail Overtown stop in front of the old Miami Heat Arena before they knocked it down. I remember the 24hr Overtown Market that was painted green and yellow and was across from the dope hole. I find it sad how gentrification has totally destroyed Overtown. #MakeOvertownDangerousAgain
