Two Tallest Towers Ever Proposed South Of Brickell Get New Renderings

Developers 13th Floor Investments and Adler Group have revised plans to build two 39-story towers next to a Metrorail station.

The twin proposed towers, which are part of the Link at Douglas megaproject, could become the tallest south of Brickell. A submittal in August showed them topping off at 444 feet above ground.

The previous tallest south of Brickell was also at the same development – a 36-story, 393-foot tower called CASCADE, which has topped off. A 22-story tower in the complex called CORE is also now open.

“Link at Douglas will be a walkable residential neighborhood, a commercial district, and a transit hub all wrapped into one, making it an economic engine and a preview of what urban development will look like in the Miami of the future,” the developers said in a statement.

The two newly proposed Link at Douglas towers are each planned to rise 39 stories, or 444 feet.

The two new towers are proposed to include:

  • 854 residential units
  • 84,160 square feet of office
  • 3,385 square feet of commercial uses
  • 1,166 parking spaces

Arquitectonica is the architect.

The proposal is aligned with Miami-Dade’s approved zoning for the property, according to a statement from the developers.

“In building a mixed-use district at this site, we will create a critical connection point that advances the County’s Smart Plan. The County understands that bringing people and density closer to transit relieves traffic congestion, boosts ridership, enhances resiliency, and unlocks new housing options for locals,” the developers said.

I love these types of developments. I live downtown now but could absolutely see myself moving a bit further out as long as transit was convenient – brings me back to my MetroNorth days haha

They look like office buildings dragged south from Sixth Avenue in Midtown Manhattan.

The Link at Douglas will become it’s own distinct neighborhood thanks to this project. I’d say it’s worthy of construction!

Coral Gables throwing chairs because they didn’t annex this piece of Miami to prevent this dense area.

If this project gets constructed and you just so happen to one day live or visit there, I hope you can conveniently find a place to park.

To be fair, minus the zig-zag crap, this is what the capitalist west was building in the 1950s. Stalin era architecture certainly wasn’t modern, as in cheap copies of our 1920s architecture. It took twenty years later for communists to start building modern buildings, but even they aren’t as ugly what Arquitectonica is proposing.

Very Rent-R-Ville design. I think that Dadeland does designs much better.
This is sad state of design and its a shame because it is so close to Coral Gables and the Grove. Very sad set of renderings and proposal. Hopefully, something will make this NOT happen.

Love the density, hate the parking. Simple way to build more of this and appease those who complain these developments will add traffic; get rid of the parking, add car share and uber passes.

This intersection & part of Dixie Hwy can NOT handle that increase in traffic. Love to see people coming to Miami, but this is ridiculous

Maybe that’s why this project is proposed next to a MetroRail stop?

The Metro can take them all the way down towards Pinecrest and beyond? To the beach? Let’s be real – the metro is going to be used here to commute to Brickell and back, and maybe for some UM students. That’s like 1/5 of the traffic.

Wow this neighborhood is going to be fantastic in 5 or so years. Another nice development happening on the other side of US1 and another just South of it on the same side of US 1.

“Link at Douglas will be a walkable residential neighborhood”

Unless you have the ability to walk on water or air/space, all neighborhoods are walkable.
