Photos: Grove Central Tops Off Next To Metrorail Station, Will Include Target & 400 Apartments

Grove Central has topped off right next to the Coconut Grove Metrorail station.

It is the latest in a series of high-density developments being built along the Metrorail.

Grove Central will include:

  • 400 apartments (including some workforce housing)
  • 172,000 square feet of retail (Target and Total Wine have signed leases)
  • 898 parking spaces

The developers had previously announced plans for multiple sustainability features.

The announced sustainability features included:

  • 2 megawatt capacity solar panels
  • Giant battery for nighttime energy usage, stored from solar
  • Geothermal air condition using cold groundwater
  • Waste-to-energy plant converting sewage into power, compost and water
  • Groundwater and rainwater collection for cooling mist and landscape irrigation

However, renderings of the building posted at the construction site no longer show the solar panels as previously depicted, so it isn’t clear if they will still be installed.

Touzet Studio is the architect.

Terra Group and Grass River Property are the developers.

Now Palmetto and Okeechobee need highrises near their stations. The palmetto station is super empty.

Mmmm

You’d think? Add Northside Metro Rail Station to that. So much surface space to build workforce housing right next to mass transit. Makes too much sense.

“Makes too much sense”

In Miami.. yes it does.

Northside Station already has recent TOD workforce housing, along with Brownsville, although that’s not to say more would be appreciated.

Maybe the developers feel that people won’t pay these rents in Hialeah or Medley ? If there is a buck to be made someone will do it.

Good work. The Grove has so much potential still. The area separating the MetroRail station and what we think of as The Grove currently is ripe for development. Let’s keep building!

We need to preserve the grove not build more. This is obviously written by a new resident or someone from Hialeah

We need to stop screwing and making more people. This is obviously written by an anti-people lover.

Been here for more than a decade now. What’s to preserve in the area I mentioned? Old shitty houses? We have plenty of those throughout Miami.

Great project. Touzet Studios has done very well with this design. It’s very urban and allows for the retail component to be near 27th Ave at street level. It will look amazing.

It’s a box with a giant wad of nothingness sticking out of it. Hardly urban or compatible with The Grove’s character, rather something you would see near FLL in Dania Beach.

And there you have it folks.. when they built a few homes in the Grove decades ago, nothing but buildings of that character should go there… EVER!

Thank you for exposing how stupid anti-gentrification advocates sound.

The Grove’s character is one of rich people homes situated in a jungle setting with crack shacks a block west. Dania’s character is one of suburban middle-class housing separated from crack shacks by Federal Highway.

Wish they would expand it from Dadeland through Florida City.

Based on what concrete has been poured for the walls, and from the cladding in the rendering, either building will either look “meh” or hideous. Not sure if the patchy white and grey are window shades, but if not, would be the latter. Maybe after a trip to Total Wine this building will look better.

Mommy, all I can see is the “parking spaces” everywhere…

Parking for:

– 400 apartments
– Retail including Total Wine, Target, etc.
– Commuters who use the metro

Kinda seems like 898 parking spaces makes sense. Maybe you should think before making uneducated comments!

Those 898 parking spaces don’t make sense when I’m playing my SIM city game on my computer…

Lol.

^then the businesses would never even bother opening here. Plenty of other shopping areas with free parking around here.

This is a great addition to neighborhood. The Zoi House building behind this is one of my favorites, its boutiqu.. This one seems too large.

Agreed, Zoi is a solid building we should see more of as infill along Biscayne Boulevard, and major streets through Little Havana and Allapattah.
