MiLine Miami’s first phase includes 338 luxury units, 4,600 square feet of retail space, and the first segment of the 6-mile Ludlam Trail linear park.

ZOM Living, in a joint-venture partnership with Mattoni Group, Scout Capital, and AEW Capital Management, has completed the first phase of MiLine Miami. Phase one includes 338 mid-rise apartments and 4,600 square feet of retail space featuring a brewery and two restaurants. It also includes 1,300 linear feet of the Ludlam Trail for residents and the public to enjoy.

“Our vision has always been to engage and activate the Ludlam Trail and have this project be a catalyst for creating a unique mixed-use neighborhood in Miami,” says Ricardo Caporal, founder and president of Mattoni Group.

The 338 apartments are a mix of studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments within a six-story building. Ranging in since between 580 and 1,700 square feet, the units are equipped with smart home systems for residents to use voice commands to control lighting, front door access, temperature, and music. Finishes feature exposed concrete ceilings, quartz countertops, and hard-surface luxury flooring throughout.

Residents’ amenities include a fire pit, a social room, a fitness center, an aqua lounge, coworking spaces, a Zen courtyard, an event lawn, a dog park, and a pool deck with cabanas and a grilling area. With direct access to Ludlam Trail, the 6 miles of linear park will include public art and connect four parks, three waterways, and two Metrorail stations at Dadeland North and South. The development’s brewery, Thorn by the founders of Lincoln’s Beard Brewing Co., is anchored by two restaurants.

“ZOM is excited to deliver phase one of our MiLine Miami community, including welcoming Lincoln’s Beard brewery Thorn to the property and delivering the first segment of the Ludlam Trail, which will create an exceptional outdoor pedestrian experience for residents and the surrounding community,” says Kyle Clayton, senior vice president of ZOM Living. “Our team is already beginning work on the remaining phases of the project that will expand this section of trail to a full half mile, and add another 600 apartments and more amenities to the community.”

MiLine Miami’s three phases will span an 11.4-acre site and include 975 apartments with 23,000 square feet of retail space. Slated to start construction by the end of the year, phase two will offer 337 apartments and 32 townhome units. By completion, the third phase will include the final 330 apartments and 18,000 square feet of retail.

Jess Bissey, chief sustainability officer of AEW Capital Management, says, “The transformative and human-centered nature of this mixed-use development fits well with our strategy to invest in real estate projects positioned for sustained, long-term growth.”
