Multifamily project spurs Biscayne Bay's newest neighborhood
Palmetto Bay, a residential enclave just south of Miami, is creating its own urban center with a new multifamily development at its core. Palmetto Station phase I opened in March 2019, and phase II opened earlier this month. It has 271 apartments over approximately 7,000 s.f. of commercial space and is within walking distance of Biscayne Bay. FCI Residential developed the 5-story building to be especially pedestrian-friendly; it features interior interconnected public walkways, widened landscaped sidewalks, a civic plaza, and an abundance of open space. Concurrent with the construction of Palmetto Station, the local governing body Palmetto Bay Village Council approved plans to convert the surrounding area of vacant buildings and warehouses into a formal downtown. Palmetto Station brings luxury living with an urban flair to the newly developing area. It includes a resort-style pool and outdoor cabanas, a Cyber Lounge, a private billiards/gameroom, workout center with a yoga studio, and a children’s playroom. PRISM developed multiple exterior view renderings as well as four axonometric views of the various floorplans to help market the community.
