Public officials and members of the building, design and financing team, celebrated the launch of the 237-unit community in the heart of Allapattah
Neology Development, led by Lissette Calderon, announces it has begun construction on its third, lifestyle-driven residential community in Miami’s Allapattah neighborhood. The $70 million “Fourteen Allapattah Residences” will deliver 237 apartments, along with 5,000 square feet of ground-floor retail, to one of Miami’s most dynamic emerging neighborhoods. The property, which will open in early 2024, enjoys a highly visible location on NW 36th Street just 5 minutes west of Wynwood and 10 minutes east of the Miami International Airport, within a federally designated Opportunity Zone.
The ceremony included remarks from public officials, including Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava, Robert Behar of Behar Font Architects, Abel Ramirez of Jaxi Builders, Jared Mintz of AOZA Fund, Jeff Rosenfeld from Churchill Real Estate and Ralph Calderon of Neology Development.
“Allapattah continues to be a place that welcomes people from all walks of life and economic backgrounds, and we are honored that it has embraced Neology as well,” said Calderon. “We owe a big thank you to Mayor Daniella Levine Cava, Commissioner Alex Diaz de la Portilla and Commissioner Keon Hardemon, and their wonderful teams; to Churchill Capital for backing our vision with financing; and to the brilliant building and design team that has helped us achieve unprecedented quality over many years. Lastly, a big thank you to my partners, my former Wharton Professor and mentor Peter Linneman, along with his team of Jared Mintz and Kelley Brasfield of AOZA Fund
