An affiliate of Prestige Builders wants to build apartments and commercial space just south of the Hialeah Metrorail Station.
“We are excited to be part of this great transformation. The formerly dilapidated mobile home project will soon be a modern walking and biking community in one of the county’s most transcendent projects” says Alexander Ruiz, COO of Prestige Companies. The Trail will be a multifamily, garden-style, workforce housing community with a mix of stylish 1 and 2-bedroom apartments. While the community will be fully compliant with parking, Prestige Companies believes the walkability and bike-ability will be a great appeal for a younger generation who prefers to spend less time in their car.
The Ludlam Trail is a new shared-use trail that will include safe, dedicated, direct pathways for walking, running, and cycling in order to encourage active lifestyles and enhance connectivity between schools, parks, transit stops, workplaces and shopping. “As one of our flagship developments, this project brings a great amount of energy and momentum to complement the Ludlam Trail’s vision,” comments Dennis Rodriguez, a partner at Prestige Companies. Ludlam Trail runs from SW 80th street up to NW 7th street and will connect with the Underline, a grand pedestrian pathway which will run 10 miles in total from Brickell to Dadeland.
“Once the pandemic is over and people begin using mass transit again, if you can do sustainable development around those transit nodes ppl will use them,” Ruiz said.
