Two tower cranes have been installed at Soleste Grand Central, marking the start of vertical construction for the luxury residential building in Overtown.
The project will include 360 Class A multifamily units in an 18-story tower. There will also be ground floor retail, and a parking garage with 438 spaces. 40 of the units will be set aside for workforce, low income and affordable housing.
Brightline/Virgin Rail’s high speed train station at MiamiCentral is nearby, as is Metrorail, Metromover and a Tri-rail station. The land itself is within an Opportunity Zone.
The area is booming with newly proposed projects, including Atlantic Pacific’s 36-story tower with 616 apartments at Block 45 one block east, and Swerdlow Group’s Sawyer’s Landing one block south with 290,000 square feet of retail and 506 residential units, among other uses.
Estate Investments Group is the developer of Soleste. Caymares Martin is the architect.
