Ground has officially broken on Ludlam Trail Towers, an affordable housing development in Miami-Dade County. The South Florida Business Journal reports that the venture will comprise 64 apartments ranging from 760 square feet to 1,000 square feet each. The community itself measures five stories.
Amenities at Ludlam Trail include a multipurpose room that will host community events. Renderings also suggest parking spaces below the venture, along with a bridge that connects the residence to a linear park and bikeway.
The development will cost an estimated $25 million to complete. Our sources list First Florida Building Corp. as the general contractor. It hopes to finish the project by May 2024. MV Real Estate Holdings is the developer, and Blitstein Design Associates is the architect.
According to a booklet released by Miami-Dade County, the venture is part of a bigger venture called “Ludlam Trail.” That venture will “transform an abandoned rail line into a vibrant, pedestrian-friendly signature urban park and public space.”
The Commercial Observer notes that before construction began, the build site was a 0.8-acre site that hosted a piece of abandoned railway track. Ludlam Trail Towers’ address is 2400 S.W. 69th Avenue, Miami, Florida, 33155, in Miami-Dade County. The community is south of Coral Way and east of Florida 826.
