Gables Station continues vertical construction next to Metrorail, according to Miami-Dade commissioner Xavier Suarez, who posted video of progress on his Twitter feed.
Suarez called the project a true transit oriented development. In addition to being near a Metrorail station, it will also be steps from the new Underline park and pathway beneath the elevated rail track.
Gables Station will include:
66 extended-stay hotel rooms
125,000 square feet of retail, including a grocer and Life Time Fitness
1,000 parking spaces
The Living Room, an open air square lined with shops, restaurants, and seating areas
A public park
The developer is funding half a mile of the Underline’s construction. The new Underline area combined with additional green space that is being created on the Gables Station lot, called Gables Station Park, will form the largest park in Coral Gables at 2.895 acres.
