Plans Revealed For 3705 South, A Transit-Oriented Office Building At Douglas Metrorail Station

Developers of an office building called 3705 South planned at the Douglas Road Metrorail station have released new marketing material.

The 22-story office tower will be one of five towers that are part of Link at Douglas, the mixed-use, transit-oriented development.

The 3705 South tower will include:

  • 281,000 square feet of leasable office
  • 75,000 square feet of retail
  • 44,635 square feet of amenities
  • 565 parking spaces

A TCO for the office tower is expected in the second quarter of 2023, with move-in by the fourth quarter of 2023.

At Link at Douglas, two apartment towers are already under construction, at 22 and 36 stories. The 36 story tower is the tallest ever built south of Brickell Avenue.

An additional two residential towers are planned but not yet under construction, bringing the total residential count to 1,422 units.

Sterling Bay is the developer of the office tower.

Adler Group and 13th Floor are developing the Link at Douglas residential towers.

Awesome! Love all the development around this station. Great looking building too. Textbook build the infrastructure first and let the developers build around it

I really hope they consider turning the metrorail up Douglas towards downtown gables and then to the airport

Bro, this is an article about the new office building and residential at the Douglas Road Metrorail station. A future Metrorail extension can and will be talked about some other time.

He’s talking about where it says in the TNM Comment Section rule book that “you can post a comment but nobody can reply to the comment you posted.”

Sorry, it makes too much sense to build a metrorail line on Douglas Road. Please contact us when you want to build a highway to nowhere or some other bad idea.

Thank you,

Your County Commissioners

How badass would it be if there was a Metrorail line that went south from the airport stopped in downtown Coral Gables, then Douglas Road, then turned east and stopped at Cocowalk?

It would need to be a tunnel I think but it would be a relatively short line with high ridership.

Technically, there is transit from the Miami Intermodal Center (MIC) that goes to Douglas Road Station. The Orange Line on the MetroRail goes straight into the MIC…and proceeds to Dadeland South. If you happen to be on the Green Line, you simply switch over to the Orange line without any additional cost. Quick, inexpensive, & runs all day & evening. Takes you to the airport, & will also bring you back to your neighborhood MetroRail Station. There are many transportation alternatives that connect at the Douglas Road MetroRail Station into Coral Gables…County busses, the Coral Gables Trolley, the Frebee, Shared ride services such as Uber & Lyft, & bicycles. Or cars if that is your choice.

Originally when the half penny proposal was brought by paneles there was a proposed metrorail extension between Douglas road and the future MIC

The new coral gables

All that development is within City of Miami limits.

Actually the real coral gables could expand vastly if they built the metro rail down Douglas, they’d have a stop right in the heart of downtown gables that would be amazing for growth.

There is a lot of land available around Earlington Heights Metro Station. 5 min to the airport, downtown, Wynwood, Jackson Hospital, Hialeah, etc. Nothing happening there. That area needs more help. People there already have no car. They really would use mass transport.

I think the more development that happens around Metrorail stations throughout the county, the more demand we will see for complementary development around other Metrorail stations. For example if my office is near a Metrorail station, I am likelier to want to live near s Metrorail station so as to take it to work

What’s with the office tower? The base is nice, especially when not a parking pedestal, but a glass box with some holes and ugly framing? Link at Douglas is ugly enough.

Not sure how this can be considered to TOD, when it includes so much parking. The whole point of TOD is to reduce parking, and discourage people from driving by developing adjacent to mass transit

So if I want to get to say SW 47th st and SW 125th ave I can take the Metrorail all the way?

Can we stop calling these projects transit orientated when they build hundreds of car parking spots? Yes, we know they are needed and/or required by code… but we can’t discount their existence.

I agree , but the government has to change those parking requirements. If they don’t then you can build all the transit and transit development you want, we will remain probably car dependent like L.A.
