Miami-Dade County holds a 55-year unsubordinated net ground lease on the property set to expire in 2066. Due to Section 42 provisions, the property will remain rent-restricted through 2070, according to Yardi Matrix. The development comprises 180 one-bedroom units, ranging from 548 to 638 square feet. Community amenities include a fitness center, business center, office, playground and open courtyard. The property also features 2,400 square feet of retail space.
Located at 3181 NW 77 St., the community is adjacent to the Northside Transit Metrorail Station and across from a Walmart Supercenter. Gwen Cherry Park is less than 2 miles southeast of the property, while Northside Shopping Center is less than a mile northeast. Downtown Miami is some 8 miles southeast and Miami International Airport is some 5 miles southwest.
Last month, Atlantic Pacific Cos. broke ground on the 75-unit third phase of Saratoga Crossings in Dania Beach, Fla. The community is planned to include units reserved for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
