‘Tallest Structure South Of Brickell Avenue’ Link At Douglas Reaches Level 15 Of Construction

Link at Douglas, the mixed-use, Transit Oriented Development, has reached level 15 of construction.

Shell contractor L&R Structural uploaded a progress photo of construction today.

Tower 2 at the project which is now rising will eventually reach a height of 36 stories, becoming the tallest in the area.

Co-developer 13th Floor Investments wrote that it will be the tallest structure south of Brickell.

According to a 2019 FAA filing, the building’s roof slab will reach a height of 389 feet above ground, or 404 feet above sea level. The building’s parapet will reach 393 feet above ground, or 408 feet above sea level.

The project will include 1,375 residential units, 280,000 square feet of office, and 68,000 square feet of retail.

The first phase, including the 36-story tower 2, will be complete by the end of 2021.

The Douglas Road Metrorail station is at the center of the project.

Adler Development is partners with 13th Floor on the project.

Douglas Road is trending to be a major transit station. With all the development that is happening on the Douglas Road corrdior between SDH and 8th Street, it may make sense to build another Metrorail line going north from the current station.

Really like the idea of having the metro rail throughout the city

Yeah the line will be proposed, studied for 10-15 years and then in the end “rapid buses” will be what’s built.

Agreed completely. A line running north passing by Calle Ocho, Flagler, the Airport, and possiblt beyond is amazing but first and foremost, Brightline and the City have to work as fast as possible to get the northern corridor some transit. We’re 50 years late on building something connecting downtown to everything to its due north.

Bright line is the northeast corridor actually, north corridor would probably be metro rail, going north from the MLK Station up to Hard Rock Stadium/county line

Actually the renders and the parking garage photo don’t really match and none of the renders show anything 400 feet or 35 stories.

The tower on the left that has all that glass looks more like an office building. I think that’s where the office spaces are. That means more good paying jobs or high paying jobs for millennials and generation Z people.

What about the other phases? When are they supposed to be completed?

That’s great! I had no idea they were allowed to build this tall in this corridor by the Douglas metro stop

They’re technically not allowed by either the Cities of Miami or Coral Gables, but the County is in control of zoning around the Metrorail station. They preempted the cities’ zoning for Transit Oriented Development; the land was likely part of acquisition in building Metrorail or acquired by the county for that use later.

What about the building south of the rails? When is that going up?

Theres currently a two story commercial looking building being built in a portion of that site area. Perhaps temporary, 5-10 years till they build next phase?

The two story building is the flagship Artefacto property (furniture store), and not part of the Link development. There’s also a Collection Jaguar-LandRover dealership that seems to be starting up between Artefacto and GablesStation.

Coming along nicely. Very smart of Civic to use L&R Structural as the shell contractor. They are easily the number one shell contractor in Florida. Good addition to the area can’t wait to see final product.

Just slightly taller than the 300-foot buildings at Dadeland and the Coral Gables stuff. They’re really reaching hard with this superlative though.

All buildings in Coral Gables are less than 200ft. Link Phase 2 is more than double the height of anything in the gables.
