The Julia Residences, a $100 million, 14-story residential tower developed by Neology Life Development Group, announced the receipt of a Temporary Certificate of Occupancy (TCO) for its 323 upscale one- and two-bedroom apartments in Miami’s Allapattah neighborhood.

Residents of The Julia will enjoy an array of amenities, including its signature ninth-floor “Sunset Sky Lounge” with a resort-style pool deck, shaded gardens, cabanas, an indoor/outdoor club lounge, a wellness center, and a starlight dining terrace. The property also features private co-working areas, a dog spa, a children’s play area, high-speed fiber optics, and 13,000 square feet of street-level retail space.

“We are excited to announce The Julia Residences has received TCO,” said Lissette Calderon, Founder and CEO of Neology Life Development Group. “This milestone marks the culmination of years of hard work and dedication to creating a distinctive living experience that embodies the spirit and energy of Miami and it’s founder Julia Tuttle. The Julia Residences is a tribute to the significant role women have played in shaping Miami.”

Despite its scale and complexity, The Julia Residences was completed expeditiously, showcasing Neology’s commitment to delivering high-quality developments efficiently. This achievement underscores the company’s dedication to providing attainable luxury living while meeting Miami’s evolving housing needs within a dynamic urban landscape.

“We are very excited to be leading the residential transformation of Allapattah – helping meet the demand for housing while being able to deliver quality and access to professionals that want to live, work, and play within close proximity to the health district, downtown Miami and so many great Miami venues,” added Calderon. “Our three developments in the heart of Allapattah perfectly embody this vision.”

Located at 1625 NW 20th Street, just blocks west of the main entrance to Jackson Memorial Hospital and the new Transplant Institute, The Julia is positioned in the heart of Allapattah, a historic neighborhood bordering Wynwood and home to elite cultural institutions such as the Rubell Museum and Superblue. Allapattah has rapidly emerged as one of Miami’s most coveted neighborhoods, with a burgeoning scene of new businesses, restaurants, and entertainment venues.

Inspired by Miami’s original real estate visionary, American businesswoman Julia Tuttle, The Julia embraces a “tropics-meets-metropolis” aesthetic, combining elements of Art Deco with 1950s-style glam.  The pet-friendly property features floor-to-ceiling windows, 9-12 foot ceilings, walk-in closets, and balconies in every unit. Each apartment is equipped with energy-efficient stainless-steel appliances, quartz countertops, European-inspired kitchen cabinetry, and in-unit washer and dryers.

As with Neology’s prior buildings, the general contractor for The Julia is JAXI Builders, Inc.; the architect is Behar Font Architects; interior design is by designBAR; and Witkin Hultz Design is the landscape architect.

The Julia’s central location offers convenient walking access to, the Civic Center Metrorail Station, the University of Miami Health System, Jackson Memorial Hospital, and Miami-Dade College Medical Center.  It is also a short distance from Brickell and Downtown, home to major employers, dining, shopping, and popular attractions such as Marlins Park, Kesaya Center, and the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts.

Neology also anticipates achieving TCO for Fourteen Allapattah Residences, its third apartment community in the district, by Q3 of 2024. Neology’s current ownership portfolio consists of 1,000+ apartments recently built or under construction in Miami’s urban core, with another 1,600 apartment units in the permitting or predevelopment phase and a pipeline of 2,000 additional units in South Florida and beyond.

Julia Apartments Break Ground In Allapattah

Neology Life, led by developer Lissette Calderon, broke ground on an apartment complex in the Allapattah neighborhood of Miami after obtaining a $78.2 million construction loan.

The Julia Apartments, named for Miami founder Julia Tuttle, will have 323 units. Construction on the 12-story building at 1625 N.W. 20th St. is expected to be completed by mid-2023.

Units in the Julia will range from 586 to 892 square feet. Amenities will include a pool with cabanas, a rooftop garden, a fitness center, a coffee bar, and a dog park.

Trez Capital provided the mortgage to TCG Allapattah, an affiliate of Neology Life, for the 1.7-acre lot.

“When we evaluate lending opportunities, we focus on the needs of a community and the track record of the developer,” said Ben Jacobson, a managing director at Trez Capital. “Partnering with Lissette and understanding her vision, we think Allapattah is perfectly positioned to attract nearby working professionals and families who desire a certain level of luxury living but are priced out of places like Brickell, downtown and Wynwood.”
