Legacy, CD Group Propose 309-unit Resi Complex Near Florida City

Legacy Residential Group and CD Group plan to build a 309-unit workforce townhouse complex near Florida City. The developers are suggesting Legacy Villas at Palm Drive on a 50.5-acre site located on the southeast corner of Southwest 344th Street and Southwest 199th Avenue in unincorporated Miami-Dade County, as per an application submitted to the county towards the end of last month.

Legacy Residential and CD have requested Miami-Dade officials to adjust prior project approvals for 309 apartments in order to convert them into townhouses. According to records, the developers acquired the website for $6.3 million in 2021 through an affiliate.

Most of the Legacy Villas townhouses are designated for households with varying income levels, as outlined in the application. Out of the 10 percent of units, half will be designated for households with incomes up to 110 percent of the AMI. Miami-Dade’s Area Median Income is currently $74,700 per year, but it is anticipated to be revised this spring.

Tom Cabrerizo is the founder of Legacy. Mauricio Cayon leads CD.
