“downtown”

It’s a glorified Hialeah with worse traffic

I have lived in Brickell for almost 10 yrs. The traffic here is much worse than Doral. I have to take into account 15-30 mins (depending on the hour of the day) to get out of Brickell. It is a nightmare. Doral works for those who work out there. Doral has class A offices, if I worked out there, I would live there. In South Florida, the traffic is so bad everywhere that you really do have to live where you work.

Who’s rating Doral? You either prefer to live there or you don’t… that simple.

Doral’s location works for a lot of people.

I don’t like Doral.

But I like the idea of this “downtown” concept. It’s just unfortunate that none of it is being built on mass transit/rail corridors.

I agree. There combining the small living space of a city with the drive everywhere culture of a suburb.

mass transit and rail brings in dirty bums ew who wants that in pleasant-ville doral 🙂

Its “rating” is irrelevant – its strong growth and prospects are being fueled by flight capital and population from Venezuela. This “land beyond MIA” is being transforming from a gritty town full of warehouses and dingy malls to a thriving self-contained little metropolis. It’s a credit to the traditional role Miami had played in times of Latin American instability. Cheers.

The flight capital is what I don’t get. For the amount of money they are selling the condos at Doral you can buy one in Coral Gables and Downtown.

Because they have their own community there. Similar to Little Havana, Little Italy, Chinatown etc.

Rich Cubana aren’t flocking to Little Havana. Rich Italians are not flocking to Little Italy. Rich Chinese are not flocking to Chinatown. I don’t think Doral is a bad place but why would people spend close to half a million dollars for a condo there.

Venezuelans like it there, just like they like Weston. Don’t worry about it, it’s not your money.

You are forgetting property taxes. I imagine doral is way way cheaper than CG

It’s investors that are buying those condos… to then rent them just like Brickell/Gables. But the difference is that Doral has better public schools. I agree the cost of living in Doral is the same as Gables and Brickell. But I assume the people who live there work nearby. Or are there for the schools. It is a great neighborhood to raise a family.

I hope the traffic in Miami gets so bad that people all over the county will beg to be taxed in order to build transit. This is the only way this city will
get some progress! With this type of construction happening in far flung places of the county traffic can only get worse.

You obviously haven’t lived here long. It’s been tried before and we got nothing out of it but higher taxes and more highways

To your point the county commission just endorsed a new expressway to south Dade and didn’t even consider a mass transit alternative. Cheers.

OP here – I’ve lived here all my life FYI and a 1/2 penny sales tax is not even close to the amount we need for actual transit. What i’m talking about is an ad valorem bond issue of at least 6 billion dollars to cover all the transit spurs that we need and an additional tax to maintain the system. Also privatize the whole system if possible in order to have some accountability, cause we all know Alice Bravo cant maintain Sh#t!

Wrong – transit should be funded mostly from impact fees collected from these developers, but that boat has sailed.

These buildings are actually designed nicely from the outside. Their views aren’t my favorite, but that just means I won’t be buying a unit there. Kudos Doral for making a walkable development.

It’s a shame you still have to drive to get to those walkable areas.

Not the people that live in Downtown Doral. I think that’s their point, those people won’t have to travel to Downtown Miami for fine dining, entertainment etc.

Traffic on 36th street/41st is going to be insane! Great forward thinking and city planning by the city of Doral and Miami Dade ?.

Unlike most of the rest of Miami metro, Doral is an suburban introvert with inward looking gated communities a la west Broward. Some residents, predominantly Latin Americans, can’t abandon the gated community concept for fear of the crime so ubiquitous to their places of origin, which is way they gravitate to Doral.

I lived there in the early 2000’s and wondered then what all the ‘hype’ was about? The over-priced condo’s and single-family homes north of 41st street are
extremely close together some cases only feet apart from another. Again, this is what the greedy developers want! Cram as much living space in one area as possible!!!!

Doral is a missed opportunity of building a modern urban center. American middle class simply can’t get rid of their 1960’s mentality.

How many apartments per tower?
The towers are numbered 1 to 5 but I can only figure space for 4 of them.
I drive by 4 times/week and they are going up REALLY fast!

Doral, from the very beginning has and will continue to be very overrated. Only people ‘glorifying Doral’ are the rich Venezuelans!
