Miami-Dade County planners will consider plans to expand The Underline Recreational Trail into the Douglas Road Metrorail Station property located at the northwest corner of the intersection between Douglas Road and South Dixie Highway. The county-owned site is approximately 7.54 net acres in size and includes the mixed-use transit-oriented development Link at Douglas by 13th Floor Investments and Adler Group, the Douglas Road Metrorail Station, and the proposed Underline expansion, which would run more or less below the Metrorail tracks. The trail’s expansion into this region of Miami, designed by Arquitectonica with ArquitectonicaGEO, makes up part of Phase 2 which also includes the section under the Coconut Grove Metrorail Station. Phase 2 will span 2.14 miles between Southwest 13th Street to Southwest 19th Avenue and is scheduled to complete in the Summer of 2023.

13th Floor Investments and Adler Group filed plans for the expansion under the Miami Douglas One, LP, and have requested an Administrative Site Plan Review (ASPR) from the Department of Regulatory and Economic Resources for approval. As per the filing, the purpose of the plan review is to “encourage logic, imagination, innovation, and variety in the design process and thereby ensure the congruity of the proposed development and its compatibility with the surrounding area.” The plans accompanying this application are compatible with the Link at Douglas Station project’s proposed design and the rest of the Underline Recreational Trail. The proposed segment of the Underline Recreational Trail within the Douglas Station property is designed to connect Douglas Road Metrorail Station to areas to the east and west for pedestrians and cyclists. The proposed Underline Recreational Trail design complies with the design standards for the trail and has been coordinated with the Department of Transportation and Public Works.
