Transit Oriented Development

Transit Oriented Development (TOD) is a fast-growing community development trend that includes a mixed-use of housing, office, retail space and/or amenities integrated into a walkable neighborhood and located within a half-mile of public transportation. TODs provide better access to jobs and housing for people of all ages and incomes. TODs help to enhance connectivity for area residents and businesses for safer accessibility to jobs, businesses, residential and commercial districts, and schools.

Goals

  • Reduce the number of household drivers.
  • Lower congestion, air pollution and greenhouse emissions.
  • Create walkable communities that accommodate healthier lifestyles.
  • Increase transit ridership and fare revenue.
  • Expand mobility choices that reduce dependence on the automobile
  • Reduce transportation costs.

The Underline will transform 120 acres of Miami- Dade County owned land below the existing Metrorail guideway, from the Miami River (Downtown) to the Dadeland South Metrorail Station, into a world-class multimodal corridor.

Link at Douglas is located next to the Douglas Rd. Metrorail station, will help offset expenses, focus density around the station and promote increased patronage of the Metrorail system.

Motion at Dadeland sits directly adjacent to the Dadeland North Metrorail station and the Dadeland Station retail center.

VOX Miami is located next to the South Miami Metrorail station. Once completed, this development will significantly enhance accessibility and visibility to the Metrorail station.
