Seven Developers Submit Proposals To Develop Land At Vizcaya Metrorail Station

Seven separate developers have submitted proposals to build a transit-oriented development on county-owned land next to the Vizcaya Metrorail station, according to the SFBJ.

The county solicited proposals for the property last year.

All of the proposals are limited to 10 stories in height, which the county listed as a requirement in the RFP. They are also predominantly residential in proposal.

Only a proposal by Related Group is taller than the requested height, and includes a significant office component.

The Related proposal includes two 25-story towers, with a residential tower called Icon Vizcaya and a 320,000 square foot office building.

A county selection is scheduled to rank the proposals at a March 19 meeting.

 

Related Group:

Vizcaya Towers, LLC (Rilea Group, Axis Realty Trust, Coastal Construction and McKinney Properties):

Adler Group & 13th Floor:

Grass River Property and Coral Rock Development Group:

Housing Trust Group:

Mill Creek Residential:

Terra:

The County does, as they’re the ones who will evaluate the projects based on the RFP… Realted will be tossed out first thing tomorrow

Related will hire a private investigator to track down and stalk the other submissions, pierce the cone of silence, and ruin the entire RFP process if they don’t win anyway.

Waiting for that Freedom Tower lot to be built.

Isn’t that what they did with the MDCC site for the Museum of Latin American Art deal? I loved that museum tower design.

Plus this will add like a mini downtown fill to Coral Way meets SW 3rd Ave. Could really transform this area further connecting it to Brickell

Miami Herald has a really great and detailed article on all the proposals with more renderings! Tried to post the link. But I guess that is not allowed.

HATE the related one. Doesn’t make any sense for the neighborhood.
Not everything has to be, or should be designed like you are in Brickell.
I like that Terra, Adler, and Rilea Group all go less high at street level of the neighborhood and then bump it to max height by the station. Its a nice considerate design decision

Cant wait till we can see all the plans and really judge them. lol

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.

“Earlington heights” is all you need to know about “why”

Because this is about PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION.

SMART’s goal is to concentrate people around mass transportation corridors and closer to the existing stations. I would add: specially where low density, no Coral Gables, Coconut Grove. That would makes Real Estate sense but falls short as a problem solution

While the Related proposals have sleek renderings, I’m sure they will look nothing like that if built.

As a resident of the area with close proximity to the station, I welcome any of these plans with open arms. This will be a gamechanger for the neighborhood and will add value to our property. This, in addition to the underline being built is a ok with me!

Not thrilled any of them. Especially considering the neighborhood. If I had to choose, the Grass River Property and Coral Rock Development Group proposal is decent. Not spectacular. Doesn’t need to be. I like the green wall.

I really like related proposal. I think we need more office and higher heights going south. This will diversified this area from just residential. As well add to Transit assessable office space.

The related group, with a parking garage at the bottom and the least amount of interaction with the street. It should be ranked last.

Adler actually did a fantastic job on their proposal. Along with Grass River, it fits the Viscaya area. Housing Trust is interesting and unique. While Related is great and all, but belongs in West Brickell. Rilea and Terra are boring, and Mill Creek is hideous.

Vizcaya Towers LLC, Grass River, Adler group in that order. Related is good also but I think too high.
