Photo: ‘Tallest Structure South Of Brickell Avenue’ Transit-Oriented Link At Douglas Continues Rising

Link at Douglas, the mixed-use, Transit Oriented Development, continues to rise.

Tower 2 at the project which is now rising will eventually reach a height of 36 stories, becoming the tallest in the area.

Co-developer 13th Floor Investments wrote that it will be the tallest structure south of Brickell.

According to a 2019 FAA filing, the building’s roof slab will reach a height of 389 feet above ground, or 404 feet above sea level. The building’s parapet will reach 393 feet above ground, or 408 feet above sea level.

The project will include 1,375 residential units, 280,000 square feet of office, and 68,000 square feet of retail.

The first phase, including the 36-story tower 2 and shorter first tower, will be complete by the end of 2021.

The Douglas Road Metrorail station is at the center of the project.

Adler Development is partners with 13th Floor on the project.

Being on the Metrorail and seeing this happen is a beauty. I look forward to other parts of Miami Dade County being risen to new heights. Soon, with Sunny Isles Beach, Aventura, Miami Beach, Brickell and so forth, we’ll probably have more buildings than Chicago. Not as tall but well truly be a sprawling metropolis.

Very true, it has been amazing to watch the transformation.

Not so sure I see a huge transformation here. It seems a disproportionately tall building in a heavily congested part of Miami. I think the jury is out on what benefits it will deliver to justify the intense zoning it received.

Clueless? Please explain the ignorance in anything the person above just mentioned. Or is your argument simply to silence people who have valid counter-arguments?

“Not sure – I See!!!.. – a huge transformation here?! It seems a disproportionately tall building in a heavily congested part of the city?!”

After saying that, this guy (yes, I’m assuming) then says he “Think the jury is out on what benefits it will deliver to justly the intense zoning it received?” Wtf?…

Remember, he posted all that after saying this is a “heavily congested part of the city.” And that don’t seem like some clueless person posting gibberish to you?!

Ignore the poster above…just one of these people on here who has a complex for ‘tall’ buildings…nothing else matters. He ‘watches’ tall buildings all day and gets excited. An obsession even a step beyond the usual fan boys. You don’t want to get in the way of that.

Unfortunately for you and the other poster, two days ago the TNM wouldn’t post my extremely well thought out response to the question “Please explain the ignorance in anything the person above just mentioned.” Therefore, I refuse to waste my time with trying to overcome bigotry.

Goodbye.

That is measurable. Metro should publish the statistics on ridership changes once the project is open.

Love this development. It’s mixing the older
Architecture of Merrick Park with modern designs and glass. This is also going to help link downtown corals gables to the southern area.

Coral Gables already does a good mix of modern and classical architecture. Too bad this is the hideous end of modern architecture the way Pollo Tropical is the hideous end of classical architecture.

We will see a lot more and better TOD with a Metromover extension down Miami International Airport to this station, and new ones in between.

it got approved because the NIBYs in coral gables had no say in what happens on County land.

You mean, versus being in all the traffic on US1?

Not sure your “versus” comparison makes sense. I’m pretty sure folks who live in this development will find themselves stuck in US1 traffic quite often.

Then that would mean that they all won’t and can’t be at the same time looking at “allllll the traffic on US1..?”

The garage has been sitting there for years. Thankfully the new development is covering it up!

Wrong. Cutler Ridge and Bel Aire neighborhoods were built in the 1950s, whereas I95 was built downtown in the late 1960s.
