Hialeah is considering approval of a major mixed-use development zone with 5.6 million sq. ft.  3,800 units around Tri-Rail station.

On January 12th, commissioners will make a final decision on the Hialeah Market Station 80-acre mixed used development plan.


A traffic study indicates that the maximum density for the area could then increase to accommodate 3.9 M Sq. ft. of commercial and retail space, 1.7 M Sq. Ft. of flex space for office or industrial, 3,800 residential units and 1,000 hotel rooms.


Since the area would be mixed use, it’s up to developers how much of those elements makes sense for their properties, and whether the city approves specific site plans, said Melissa Tapanes Llahues, an attorney with Bercow Radell & Fernandez who represents local landowner Gerard Keating and worked with the city to draft the comprehensive plan amendment.

The area is near the industrial intensive zone at the intersection of State Rd. 112 and U.S. 27.


The mixed-use district will be accessible by train from major employment centers a Miami Airport and downtown Miami.

Landowners will be required to create or cooperate with the city in creating rights of way for pedestrians, and parks alongside the railway track, in order to obtain the increase in density. 

Around the Tri-Rail station 15 stories building and 125 units per acre would be allowed.  At farther distances, six to eight stories building would be allowed.
