ANF Group, Inc. recently celebrated the topping out of the first phase of Southpointe Vista, a two-phase affordable housing development developed by McDowell Housing Partners located at Southwest 117th Court and Southwest 214th Street in Miami-Dade County’s Goulds community. This phase introduces a 10-story high-rise reserved for those earning up to 70% of the area median income, featuring 124 affordable units comprising 91 one-bedrooms, 25 two-bedrooms, and eight 3-bedrooms. A two-story parking garage, connected by a skybridge, includes 196 spaces and 18 electric vehicle charging stations. Amenities encompass community rooms, laundry facilities, a cybercafé, a fitness room, a rooftop terrace, and on-site management offices.
“We are excited to mark the topping out of the first phase of Southpointe Vista and extend our gratitude to our project team for their contributions to this success,” said Al Fernandez, President of ANF Group. “As rents and housing prices continue to escalate across South Florida, we eagerly anticipate delivering this much-needed development that will bring affordability to the area without compromising on modern features and amenities.”
Phase two is expected to bring a second 12-story building to the development consisting of 208 units, that will range from studios to 2-bedroom units. A pedestrian paseo will bisect the two buildings allowing pedestrians access to easily cross between 117th Court and SW 117th Avenue. A second two-story parking garage will feature 148 parking spaces, plus an additional 12 electric vehicle charging stations, and connect to the new building via skybridge as well.
This project was partly funded through Miami-Dade County’s Public Housing and Community Development Department with $2.5 million in surtax funds. The architect is REPRTWÄR Architecture and Design. Completion of the first phase is expected during the fourth quarter of 2024, contributing to the ongoing development and enhancement of Miami-Dade County’s housing landscape.
