Utilities Deal Signed For Culmer Village Transit-Oriented Development Next To Metrorail

The owner of a property near the Culmer Metrorail station has just signed a deal to bring in water and sewer for a mixed-use project.

The project is known as Culmer Village, the agreement shows.

According to the new agreement, Culmer Village will include:

  • 612 apartments
  • 12,804 square feet of retail

According to the website of owner Kite Partners, the property was formerly the Biscayne Chemical Site, and was later environmentally remediated.

A broker is currently advertising the retail space in the upcoming project as being available for lease.

There will be two towers rising 20 stories, the brochure says.

The Metrorail station is just south of the site.

This is what Miami really need more of affordable housing!!! 7th Ave has multiple empty lots that can be turn into affordable housing, still very close to downtown.

Agreed. Hopefully the city commissioners can see past the parking issue. Parking is expensive and we need all sorts of projects. Even ones with less parking.

The entire NW 7th Ave Corridor should be rezoned and redeveloped

In any big city in the world, a metro station brings businesses, ventures and opportunities, generating jobs, income and taxes. These twin towers are good news.

Boring, unremarkable, and just perfect. Not every building has to be beautiful, win an architectural award, or use new technology. They just have to do their job and this development will perform

I like this one. Nice and simple. Let’s just hope they charge market rate and not 3k for a 1 bedroom

They won’t get 3K for a 1 bedroom in that neighborhood.

If the price is so right to where I can afford to live there, then I don’t giveadamn about how you view the aesthetics of the building.

Boring, but at least it’s not ugly. This is where the “affordable” housing is ripe everyone whines about, not in the middle of downtown.

At least it’s not some divisive historical figure, dead rapper with a single tear, or some other crap mural. I think the treatment would be nice for vertical landscaping to grow up it.

A chemical plant adjacent to a high school. Who plans this shit?

It looks like the government had leftover land between I-95 and the chemical plant that already existed, hence a public school and women’s jail.

I don’t care what the building looks like as long or where it’s you where it’s at as long as I can afford the rent I’ll be happy to rent it where can you go to rent it

Check out the history of how Overtown began and what led to the area’s demise.

We know, it’s all the big bad I-95’s fault, never mind many residents already moved away for places like Liberty City, and elsewhere during “black flight,” when segregation was lifted.

Back in day, as long as those elected officials in Miami didn’t decide to run I-95 through the area where your people were forced into because they had no choice when it comes to anywhere else to live in the city or county, you think your pitiful explanations and knowledge about Miami and Dade county is all anyone need?

I agree I-95 destroyed the urban fabric, but it is a joke to think that is the cause of the area’s demise. You’re not being intellectually honest.

Since you honestly know what caused that “area’s demise,” then stop BSing around and tell us.

Gentrification is never a bad thing. And Overtown will never be a “white” neighborhood, just as Miami is not a “white” city. Leave your racism elsewhere.

It won’t be supermajority Hispanic anymore, and the non-white Hispanic population will continue to rebound/increase. Then you hear all the “reverse” racists scream about displacement from gentrification while they already live elsewhere.

I thought it was “food deserts” primarily fueling the obesity epidemic in pee-oh-cee neighborhoods, and when there are efforts to alleviate it, “community leaders” rage about gentrification.

Honestly, while they’re wrong about gentrification being bad or even a thing, their displeasure is understandable. When you have so little you’re afraid to lose it

Any community would be suspicious when “outsiders” begin to move in. It’s human nature, no matter what community it is. We are tribal societies.
