ZOM Developing 391-Unit Met Square As Rental Apartments

Apartment developer ZOM will develop the second phase of downtown Miami’s Met Square as a 391-unit apartment building, TNM has learned.

This would be the third major project for ZOM in the downtown area. In total, ZOM will have 1,291 rental apartments in the pipeline for downtown Miami.

Across the street, the developer has the 462-unit Monarc at Met 3 under construction above Whole Foods. Zom bought the air rights to that property from MDM Development for $23.1 million, and has likely arranged a similar deal for the Met Square air rights.

In Brickell, preliminary work is underway on ZOM’s 438-unit Solitair Brickell. Zom paid $16.75 million for that land, which is across from Brickell City Centre.

Met Square’s first phase is still slated to include 37,558-square-feet of restaurant space and a 1,778-seat movie theater. Both phases of Met Square do not include any parking spaces, since Met 3’s garage has been designed to handle the parking needs of both projects.

Amenities for residents of Met Square’s apartment building will include a fitness center, game room, bar, wellness lounge, club lounge and pool deck. The tower will top out at 492-feet above ground (although the developer has approval to build taller.)

Miami’s NBWW is the architect for Met Square, while ADD Inc. is handling interior design.

underultilized parcel….crazy thing is that its taken the met project 14 years to be completed and the product has been extremely underwhelming. Granted Whole foods and Met2 were welcomed additions.

Happy Now?

The first couple blocks north of the river to SE 2nd St is feeling more and more like an extension of Brickell. After these two ZOM rentals, Karmely’s towers, and whatever Fifteen Group and Coto decide to do on their lots, there won’t be much space left to develop…I think just one parking lot left south of SE 2nd St next to Miami Tower. North of SE 2nd St, however, is another planet…

Development is coming from the West as well, have you seen Intown Condos. Not big, as luxurious, but definitely a product that appeals to a market saturated by luxury condos

Miami doesn’t need anymore housing in the pipeline.

Let me simplify what I’m saying to you.

For you to hypothesize that “Miami doesn’t need anymore housing in the pipeline” means that you either have very extensive information and knowledge of the realestate market in Miami and from your expert analysis of said knowledge and information, you have deduced from exhaustive study, and out of the kindness of your heart, decided to share with us the conclusion of your findings, or you just want to (in the most simplistic manner) appear knowledgeable about something you really know nothing about.

This run-on sentence is painful to read. Please try again. Thank you.

Problem is, for such a painfully simple and easy deduction, I don’t hear anyone saying it.

These apartments are going to be right in the middle of all the new and exciting happenings that’s in store for downtown. It’s the type of conveniency that those who seek apartment living downtown have been waiting for.

Keep building Miami, and they will come.
