“Transit Pointe Hialeah presents a one-of-a-kind and strategic investment opportunity, uniquely positioned to leverage South Florida’s dynamic transportation infrastructure. With zoning that encourages high-density development and a location at the heart of one of Tri-Rail’s busiest stations, this site offers unparalleled connectivity and limitless growth potential,” said Krasnow. “In an era of urban evolution, transit-oriented developments like this one are the vanguards of the future, adeptly addressing the growing needs of commuters and fostering sustainable urban expansion.” 

The site spans 2.03 acres and encompasses two parcels. The East Parcel falls under Hialeah’s TOD zoning overlay, permitting up to 125 units per acre and building heights ranging from 3 to 15 stories. The West Parcels are zoned for mixed-use projects, allowing up to 60 units per acre. 

“Transit Pointe Hialeah represents an innovative chance to pioneer a transit-oriented development, which could revolutionize the city,” said Fernandez. “With Hialeah’s unique dual-district concept underway, this project fosters workforce housing, adaptive reuse, job generation, and civic engagement, paving the way for a connected and thriving future.” 

The site benefits from its proximity to Hialeah Hospital and incorporation into the city’s upcoming developments. The Hialeah Transit-Oriented Development Plan aims to carve out two distinct districts, breathing new life into Hialeah’s warehouse zones by transforming them into vibrant, mixed-use communities with a strong emphasis on workforce housing, job generation, and urban density. With strategic developments in the pipeline and zoning incentives in place, Transit Pointe Hialeah emerges as the perfect canvas for a mixed-use or residential venture that will play a pivotal role in fueling expansion along the South Florida Rail Corridor. 

The Hialeah Tri-Rail/Metrorail Transfer station has solidified its position as the Tri-Rail network’s second busiest hub, recording an impressive 292,687 boardings in 2023. The station is also strategically located near Downtown Miami and offers seamless connectivity to the Metrorail and Metrobus routes. Hialeah residents benefit from easy access to major thoroughfares, including I-75, Palmetto Expressway, Florida’s Turnpike, and Okeechobee Road. Its central location ensures residents are approximately 20 minutes away from any point in the county, with convenient access to Miami Opa-Locka Executive Airport (OPF) and Miami International Airport (MIA).
