Jacksonville-based Vestcor has proposed Ambar Station, a multifamily housing development on a 7.8-acre plot that it has under contract. The South Florida Business Journal reports that the venture would comprise 576 apartments, ranging from one-bedroom to three-bedroom residences.
Ambar Station would comprise two eight-story buildings and two three-story buildings. In addition to the residences, Ambar Station would offer more than 8,000 square feet of retail, along with 852 parking spots. One-hundred and fifty-eight would be electric vehicle charging stations. Communal amenities at Ambar Station would include two swimming pools.
As noted, Vestcor is the developer. Anillo Toledo Lopez Architecture designed the community. Ambar Station isn’t the only community under the Ambar banner. The Real Deal reports that developer’s other projects include Ambar Key and the Ambar, two similar projects in Florida City and Miami, respectively. Vestcor is also working on Ambar Trails, an affordable housing development that started construction in 2021.
Our sources don’t indicate when the project will start construction. When it does, however, the general contractor will have to demolish an abandoned office building and two apartments.
The proposal for Ambar Station concerns the site at 27742 and 27860 S. Dixie Highway, Homestead, Florida, 33032, in Miami-Dade County. The community is strategically near a local busway station.
