The Little River Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) project embodies a groundbreaking shift towards affordable urban living in Miami’s Little River neighborhood. Designed holistically, this project seamlessly integrates a diverse mix of uses, ensuring inclusivity and providing much-needed access to amenities, jobs, and retail previously scarce in the area. It aims to rejuvenate the neighborhood with a variety of housing options—including market-rate, affordable, and workforce units—while avoiding displacement of existing residents. By thoughtfully replacing outdated 1940s public housing with new, sustainable alternatives, it preserves the neighborhood’s cultural significance and integrity.

At the core of this ambitious vision, which includes over 5,000 units, is a strong focus on transit, mobility, and accessibility. The introduction of a new train station at the heart of Little River TOD is set to transform resident lifestyles, offering viable alternatives to the prevalent urban car-centric culture. This development is a referent for a shift towards public transit, walking, and biking, dramatically decreasing car dependency and nurturing a more sustainable, interconnected community fabric. More than just enhancing living conditions through superior housing, the project is dedicated to crafting a cohesive urban mobility experience. As such, the Little River TOD emerges as a model of inclusive, sustainable urban development, presenting integrated solutions to climate, housing, and mobility challenges with a comprehensive and inclusive strategy.
