Trammell Crow No Longer Pursuing Apartment Project At Lynx Site, Will Build In Doral

Trammell Crow No Longer Pursuing Apartment Project At Lynx Site, Will Build In Doral

Trammell Crow Residential has announced plans to re-enter the South Florida apartment market with a new project.

“South Florida is a key market for TCR as part of our national development strategy. Miami in particular is the only true gateway city in our southeastern footprint,” said TCR Managing Director, Jim Berardinelli.

The first project will be in Doral, with demolition to begin this month. It will include 350 units in an eight-story community. 80,000 square feet of retail is also included.

In an email to The Next Miami, Berardinelli said TCR was no longer pursuing plans to develop an apartment complex at the former Lynx property.

Last year, the company submitted a proposal to the FAA for a 483-foot tower on the downtown site.

So is the Lynx site going to stay abandon for more years to come.

Of course
I was downtown last week and it’s very sad to see 85% of stores boarded up.
The place was eerily desolate, except for a couple of homeless folks.
It will take a generation to see what can happen here. Shame…

Don’t worry, downtown is being injected with a lot of new apartments and condos, so changes are coming!

Where are the office workers? The businesses? The hotels? I’ve said it time and time again. There is no attraction to downtown yet. Any lifeline we should take and I mean going bold: Casinos, Skyrise, you name it.

I mean, who were actually holding their breath while waiting to see anything done with this site? Teasing is only effective for so long and then a person gets uninterested and moves on.

So, who owns the Lynx site?

Smart move. Developers need to look at Kendall and Doral to build apartment communities. There are enough condos in Downtown, Brickell, Edgewater area.

That will be a huge upgrade for that site in Doral.

No personality + no public trnasportacion = Suburbia.

You are absolutely right about the lack of transportation but not quite sure about the personality comment. Although I for one, live in the city, I have to admit, suburbia is brimming with activity, nightlife and a myriad of restaurants. The fact is that most people do live in suburbia and it does feel more lived in. We still have a long way to go before our CBD does feel like a city.

You are right. My life is dull and boring. When I’m not in my pool, or grilling some wagyu steaks on my grill, all I can do is go inside to watch a game on my 75 inch Qled Ultra 4k tv with full surround sound while drinking a Heineken. Sometimes for fun, I go outside to watch my lawn grow. Oh how I wish I lived in a tiny, overpriced apartment on Brickell so I can take the metromover to the school board station just for fun.I’m soooooooooo depressed.

My Brickell life is similar. Except, at my condo pool there is a grill and usually a dozen models hanging out in the cabanas. There is a 75 inch TV in the Billards room, another on the 45th floor sky lounge. Not much grass, but you can watch the verticle garden grow in the Secret Garden. Since my office is one blocks walk away from my overpriced condo, my driving is getting a little rusty. I miss those drives to the beautiful suburban Costco. Now with Amazon Fresh and Postmates dropping off anything I want in the foyer, it frees up time to walk along the Biscayne Bay. Admittedly, the suburban retentention ponds that have those fountains churning up the water are charming, and Brickell could really use an Olive Garden when I want wine and dine my lady friend. But Brickell does have Zuma, Quinto La Huela, Cipriani, Komodo, or Brickell CitiCenter. If all goes well, I can sell my overpriced Brickell apartment get a nice house on a cul d sac, a couple jetskis, a minivan, one of those Sharper Image massage chairs, and really live it up in Miami Springs or some place where there are no… Read more »

In Atlanta, they are building these buildings in Suburbia. I just came from there. The apartment buildings out there are usually midrises (5 – 8 stories high), and they are BEAUTIFUL!!!! Full with amenities from pool(s), grilling stations, home theaters, meeting rooms, conference rooms, dog parks, dog bars (to bathe your dog), fitness center, etc. I saw them in Brookhaven, Chamblee and Sandy Springs -all suburbian towns. Most of the properties are fully stabilized and they stabilized fast because it is cheaper to live in suburbia and that is where most people live. Look how fast the apartments are renting in Doral. Pembroke Pines and that entire area by Sawgrass Mall including all the way up to South West Ranches, the apartments rent pretty fast up there and the communities are vibrant. You go to eat at a restaurant up there and they are busy. It is a great place to raise your family as schools are fantastic. I have lived everywhere in Miami and you see restaurants close up faster in areas like Miami Beach/Brickell than in Kendall/Doral. I have rarely seen restaurants close down. I grew up in Kendall and most of the restaurants I remember going to… Read more »

Your life in Brickell may sound similar, but it differs in one huge aspect—you must share all your amenities with others, and cannot enjoy them in the privacy and comfort of your own home. I dine in all the restaurants you mentioned, but instead of walking to them in the 95 degree heat, I drive to them in the air-conditioned comfort of my Lexus. Different strokes for different folks. I’m happy living where I live, and you sound likewise. Just stop putting people down because they live in the burbs. That’s just immature. Come say hello on Sunday, I will be having brunch at Zuma. By the way, the bellinis at Harry’s Bar are way better.

In Atlanta, Buckhead used to be Suburbia… Now it is it’s own urbanized city. There is no need to travel hours to get to work because Buckhead built its own downtown, there are homes, apartment buildings, malls, nightlife, restaurants, great schools, etc. Doral is headed in the right direction… they have an industrial section, homes, apartments, condos, restaurants, Dolphin Mall, great schools, class A office space, etc.. The point is for people to live, work and play in their community… this is how you fix the traffic situation. West Kendall is another area developers need to look at. The schools out there are great, which was not the case 15 years ago.
