A transformative mixed-use, mixed-income development dubbed Dulce Vida will soon commence construction at Miami’s Allapattah neighborhood, in Florida. Coral Development has partnered with Bethany Community Services, a Miami based nonprofit church on the project. Since Bethany Community has strong ties to Allapattah neighborhood, it will handle the necessary community outreach services and involvement initiatives.
The $75 million Dulce Vida development, will go up on a 1.3 acre property at 1786 Northwest 35th Street. According to the developer, the project will provide more affordable housing options for the community and add to the area’s revitalization. Therefore, it aligns with Florida’s SB 102 law, which promotes increased access to affordable housing and mixed income development.
