The new Metrorail station proposal
The Adler 13th Floor (a partnership between the Adler Group and 13th Floor Investments), provided their plans for the development of the Douglas Road Metrorail project and they received the recommendation of a county selection committee.
The proposal will now go before the County Commission, but first, Adler and 13th Floor must negotiate with the county.
This project called, "The Link at Douglas" proposes almost 1000 residential units a 150 unit hotel and 70,000 square feet of retail space with an open plaza. It's sure to add so much more traffic to US1 but the whole purpose of it being part of the Metrorail is to get people out of their cars. (But will that ever happen in Miami?)
I'm always amazed by hotels in strange places. Why would anyone stay at the hotel, supposedly a Hilton Garden when they could stay in the Center Grove at the Mayfair or Sonesta? Maybe out of town family for Grove and Gables residents would use it? I guess you could just leave the hotel and hop on the Metrorail and be downtown or at Dadeland, so that is convenient. When I go to Boston, I prefer to stay in Cambridge, I love it there, and I usually stay at the Hyatt at MIT. You leave the door of the hotel and hop on the T right there. Their subway is called the T and it's right below the Hyatt.
