Market Station TOD District

Hialeah, FL

The City of Hialeah's community leaders and residents have the opportunity to reinvest in one of its most underutilized areas, creating Hialeah's first planned multimodal mixed-use community. The Market Station Transit Oriented Development (TOD) District integrates public transit, commercial, retail, hotel, recreational amenities, and diverse housing typologies geared toward a broad range of incomes within an 80-acre footprint. The District is served by the Hialeah Market Station/Tri-Rail Station and will connect to the Miami Intermodal Center east of Miami International Airport and the Metrorail. With the Market Station/Tri-Rail Station already in place, the vision of the district is to provide residents with additional transportation options (pedestrian walkability, bike and public transit) within the development, creating better access to jobs, housing, and opportunities for people of all ages and incomes.

The Master Plan for the Market Station TOD District includes a new parkway aptly named the “Orange Blossom,” after a train line that ran along the East Coast up until the early 1950s.  Designed as an urban linear park, the Orange Blossom Parkway will include a new roadway, bike paths, and wide pedestrian trails adjacent to the west side of the existing CSX freight rail line and on the public right-of-way between the Hialeah Market Station and Hialeah Drive. This new thoroughfare will serve as a border for the proposed Market Station TOD District and will encourage an active pedestrian and bicycle friendly environment. Also included in the Market Station TOD District Master Plan is a proposal to transform the 1926 Market Station building into a vibrant marketplace that will face a proposed park for community events.
