Related To Break Ground On Affordable Housing In Brickell Later This Year

Brickell is set to get a housing project geared to those with low to mid income levels, developed by Related Group

Gallery Of West Brickell is set to be built on the Northwest corner of 2nd Avenue and 10th Street, and will include:

  • 8 Public Housing units
  • 40 affordable-housing units (income under $23,500)
  • 229 market-rate units. (income between $23,500 and $66,000)

A ground floor art gallery will display the works of up-and-coming artists as well as provide space for events and social gatherings.

Related is seeking local affordable housing funding, while also trying to sell 80/20 tax free bonds to finance construction.

Groundbreaking is expected in the third quarter.

Demand for affordable housing in the area is high. Brickell View Terrace, which was recently completed nearby, received 8,000 applications for 100 affordable units, according to the DBR.
