M&R Enterprizes 1 L.L.C, led by Rosa A Garcia and based in Homestead, Florida, has submitted an application for administrative site plan review (ASPR) for a new mixed-use development. This project is located at 24735 South Dixie Highway, at the northwest corner of Southwest 134th Avenue and Southwest 248th Street in Princeton, Miami-Dade County. Designed by Edward Silva of E.S.A. Quality Design, the 8-story development falls within the County’s Urban Development Boundary (UDB) and is projected to yield 351,006 square feet. This space allocation includes 159,172 square feet dedicated to residential use across 222 multifamily units, 27,518 square feet for amenities, and 105,383 square feet of parking space, accommodating 344 vehicles.
The property is in the Core Sub-District of the Princeton Community Urban Center District (PCUCD) and carries the Mixed-Use Main Street (MM) designation. This zoning allows for diverse uses, including mixed-use buildings of up to 15 stories and a density of 125 dwelling units per gross acre. The area has recently undergone significant planning changes following resolution no. The Board of County Commissioners adopted z-37-23 on September 20, 2023. These amendments include modifications to the Street Types Plan, New Streets Plan, and Designated Open Space Plan, notably the reconfiguration of Designated Open Space #3 from a 27,000 sq. ft. square to a smaller 22,008 sq. ft. green space.
The proposed mixed-use project features an 8-story building combining 222 multi-family apartment units with approximately 5,868 square feet of commercial space, resulting in a density of about 112.12 dwelling units per gross acre. The plan includes a variety of 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom units, catering to a range of residential needs. The amenities set to be offered will include a playground, gym, sauna, and a swimming pool with a deck, enhancing the quality of life for its future residents.
This development aims to create a harmonious balance between residential and commercial spaces, fostering a vibrant community environment. By introducing new housing and commercial opportunities, the project aligns with the Princeton Community Urban Center District’s planning guidelines and contributes to the social and economic advancement of the area.
