Developer Plans Apartments, Retail At Hialeah Transit Station

Dec 26, 2019 No Comments by

Cornerstone Group wants to build a mixed-use project at the Okeechobee Metrorail Station in Hialeah.

Metro Grande III, an affiliate of Hollywood-based Cornerstone Group, filed a pre-application with Miami-Dade County officials concerning 1.46 acres just south of the transit station at 2005 W. Okeechobee Road. The land, currently a parking lot, is owned by Miami-Dade County Public Housing & Community Development, which awarded a development bid to Cornerstone Group in 2018.

County officials have been trying to develop housing on this site since 2001, but previous partnerships with other developers fell through. The Okeechobee Metrorail Station is surrounded primarily by warehouses, so building homes there would likely increase ridership.

Plans for Metro Grande III call for a 7-story building with 84 residential units totaling 94,096 square feet, 3,189 square feet of retail and 184 parking spaces. Some of the apartments would be affordable and workforce housing.

The project was designed by Behar Font & Partners. It would have 41 units with one bedroom, 37 units with two bedrooms, and six units with three bedrooms.

The two future phases of Metro Grande would have 108 and 94 units, plus additional retail.

Officials with Cornerstone Group declined comment. Developers file pre-applications so they can receive feedback from county staff before submitting official applications.

The city of Hialeah also changed the zoning around its Metrorail and Tri-Rail stations to encourage more multifamily and mixed-use development.
