Utilities Deal Signed For Transit-Oriented Treo Somi Station Above South Miami Metrorail Garage

Treo Group has signed a deal to connect their proposed Somi Station project to county water and sewer lines.

The mixed-use project will be built above and adjacent to the parking garage at the South Miami Metrorail Station.

Somi Station will include the following, according to the newly signed deal:

  • 183,516 square feet of office space
  • 37,540 square feet of retail
  • 99 apartments

The agreement was completed this week. Treo bought out a long-term lease of county land where the project is proposed in 2016.

Perkins + Will is the architect.

According to the architect’s website, the office space will house business incubators and small startups. The existing garage will be converted to house amenities, with student housing to be built above the garage. The new office and retail structure will be built on adjacent land.

The developer will revitalize the area underneath the Metrorail by adding restaurants, gardens and recreational opportunities for the community, the architect says.
