Gables Gate Tower

MIAMI—The first new real estate development project in many years in the City of West Miami will break ground on Friday. The Estate Companies is developing the $35 million Gables Gate Tower, a 206-unit, luxury multifamily project that principal Robert Suris expects to be the first in a series of revitalization projects for West Miami.

“West Miami is poised to be the next, hot development area,” says Suris. “With its proximity to Coral Gables, the airport, major highways and the top five employment centers in Miami-Dade County, we are sure this will be the first of many more developments to come.”

Gables Gate Tower will be a split, mid-rise multifamily complex with one seven-story tower and one four-story tower. The 2.1-acre site is on 67th Avenue between Southwest 21st and 22nd Streets, immediately west of Coral Gables.

Design-wise, Suris is going for a classic Mediterranean feel. The multifamily project will feature a two-story grand lobby, a heated pool with surrounding cabanas, a poolside fitness center, and a recreation/club room for tenant parties and get-togethers.

The multifamily complex’s plans call for studio, one- and two-bedroom floorplans with either one or two bathrooms. Multifamily units will range in size from 750 square feet to 1,250 square feet and feature granite countertops, solid wood cabinetry, full kitchen appliance packages, washers and dryers, nine-foot ceilings and floor-to-ceiling impact sliding glass doors onto either private balconies or terraces.

“It’s our company’s goal that Gables Gate Tower sets the bar for the future developments in West Miami,” says Suris. Construction is set to begin immediately and doors to the multifamily units should open by Spring 2015.
