Back in 2018, we estimated how many apartments the Gateway Overlay District might create thanks to the changes in allowable density.  We estimated up to 215 residential apartments.  We already have 51 new apartments going up at the Miami Springs Town Center Complex.  At the time, we estimated the Gateway Overlay District could create up to 48 apartments at the Hook Square Property.

But wait, there’s more…

The same folks who purchased 69 Hook Square (Flagler Ponce Development, LLC) also purchased the retail property that includes Burritoville, Poinciana Flowers, Ray’s Taekwondo, and the Adventist Book Store at 1 South Royal Poinciana Boulevard.  County records show this property sold for $2,800,000 on January 10, 2022.

This property has a lot size of 18,730 sq ft and with a 1.7 FAR could build up to 31,841 sq ft.  Now, this property lacks the space for adequate on premise parking, but if it were to get credit for parking at the sister property at 69 Hook Square, they may be able to build a parking garage that fully accommodates both properties.

The Flagler Ponce Development LLC just invested $6.1 Million in Miami Springs.  We’ll see what big plans may arise from their investments.

  1. Nestor could you advise if that building that AT-T has is it theirs or rented. That could me a great city parking garbage in my opinion unless they keep using it. I never see any work trucks or cars parked there.

    • The City Manager mentioned a conversation he had with someone about possibly turning the AT&T Building into a Parking Garage. Under today’s environment a Garage at that location would fail. What plans are people looking at that would justify putting a parking garage there now?
