West Coconut Grove, one of the hottest neighborhoods for development in Miami that has seen a massive transformation over the past 3 years, will be getting a massive new mixed-use project on the Grand Avenue corridor. Metronomic is under contract to purchase a 12 property assemblage at 3280-3461 Grand Avenue for $25 million with a closing date set in mid-February 2019. Metronomic, led by Ricky Trinidad, has proposed a $74 million, 297,000 SF mixed-use development that would feature luxury apartments, affordable housing, retail, office space, community parks, public parking and a 44-key hotel. Trinidad hopes receive FAA approval to build a rooftop helipad. The project is designed by Pablo Burgos of Burgos Lanza & Associates and Carl Levin of CLAD Architects.
The project would be built in multiple phases with the first being Metronomic Place, which will feature a boutique office building and the hotel component at 3280 Grand Avenue. Metronomic expects to break ground on Metronomic Place before the end of 2018 after locking down a $6.8 million construction loan financed by Fuse Funding. Metronomic Place will rise 5-stories and will feature the 44-key hotel, 5,000 SF of Class A Office Space, 3,200 SF of ground floor retail. Phase 2 would begin in March after the closing and would include the build-out of the rest of the project to be completed within 2 years. Phase 2 will include 38 furnished micro units, 82 luxury apartments rentals and 40 affordable housing units along with a public area for farmers markets and stage for live performances.
