New Residential Community for Service Members

Meeting the ongoing need for affordable options, a new 51-acre military housing development is in the works near the U.S. Southern Command HQ in S. Fla.

DORAL, Fla. – Engineers are working on new 51-acre development for military housing near the U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) headquarters in Doral, Florida.

The project includes 139 units of duplexes, townhouses, single-family homes, and apartments for accompanied and unaccompanied service members.

Part of the 1990s Department of Defense's Military Housing Privatization Initiative, the Federal Aviation Administration transferred the land to the Army at no cost to help ease affordable, high-quality housing options near duty stations by partnering with private sector housing partners who invest in the construction and maintenance of the housing over a 50-year period.

Lendlease, a leading international property and infrastructure group, will construct the development, which will be erected in phases, with some units made available by summer 2026 and full completion expected by early 2027.
