Miami — Locally based investment and development firm The Treo Group has broken ground on VOX Miami, a $125 million mixed-use project in South Florida.
Treo Group will develop the transit-oriented site, which is located at the corner of U.S. Highway 1 and Sunset Drive, adjacent to the South Miami Metrorail station, in multiple phases. Phase I will feature an eight-story student housing building with 326 beds across 99 units that will serve undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Miami. Amenities will include study lounges, a rooftop terrace, fitness center and a pool.
The building is scheduled for completion before the 2021-2022 academic year.
The second phase of VOX Miami is a 195,000-square-foot office building. Perkins + Will is designing the Class A property, which will also house ground-floor retail space. A start and completion date for that component has not yet been released.
“VOX Miami is designed to fulfill the needs of various community sectors, from University of Miami students to local businesses, while providing convenient accessibility via the Metrorail and bolstering the overall appeal of public transportation,” says Otto Boudet-Murias, Treo Group principal.
Treo Group is also developing Regatta Harbour, a 9.5-acre mixed-use project in Miami’s Coconut Grove area. That project will feature 100,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space along the waterfront, as well as rooftop event space and marina slips for several hundred vessels.
