Shipping Avenue Apartments Proposed Near Merrick Park With 254 Units In 20 Stories

A new residential project is being proposed by developer Mast Capital on the border of Coconut Grove and Coral Gables, within Miami city limits.

Shipping Avenue Apartments is planned to include:

  • 20-story tower
  • 254 residential units
  • 385,961 square feet of total area
  • 10,000 square feet of amenities
  • 825 square feet commercial/retail
  • 319 parking spaces (in an 8-story, mural adorned garage)

Arquitectonica is the architect.

The project site is about a three minute walk from the Douglas Road Metrorail Station.

Also at the Douglas Road Metrorail Station, developers Adler Group and 13th Floor Investments are planning a mixed use project called Link at Douglas with 1,421 apartments, 251,873 square feet of office, around 70,000 square feet of restaurants, and retail, spread among multiple towers. The tallest will be 40 stories.

The Shipping Avenue project is scheduled for review by Miami’s Urban Development Review Board at its meeting on January 16, 2019.

Kind of messed up that the single family homes in the area will have a tower shadowing their homes.

increasing that area’s population density will increase the number of metro rail riders.

I know a lot of ppl that live in that area, mostly UM students, and recent grads. They ALL drive everywhere they go including to UM and the medical campus. Tenants of “luxury apartments” will not ride the metro. I’m sure there are a few exceptions but the majority don’t.

He’s correct. The Merrick Park area kids come from big money (generally NYC). Good economic injection though with the parents’ money.

Arquitectonica is to congratulated. They have created a new form of ugliness yet again!

Only 800 sq ft for comercial? The entire thing should be ground floor retail

If developers are smart, they can someday steal businesses from downtown Coral Gables.

There is enough to share.

It will all connect via Ponce, 37th Ave, and maybe even Le Jeune. Just wait.
