La  Elaina Apartments is a  new duplex

rental town-home development in Little Havana, Miami,  FL.

This new infill development will go down in history as the first all-female built building in Miami.

Promoting positive change in the community, Metronomic is leading the women in construction movement working with numerous sub-contractors to recruit the team of nearly 20+ female employees who are joining together to help break gender barriers in construction. The company has also received support from Director and former President of National Association of Women in Construction’s Miami Chapter, Lucia Soria. She says, “the core purpose of our organization is to continue inspiring women and enhance their success in the construction industry. When women unite, they can accomplish anything, and I am proud to witness a company like Metronomic demonstrating this and making history in Miami.”


Considering Miami is the only U.S. city founded by a woman, we hope La Elaina inspires a new generation of women to make history and continue shaping the communities of tomorrow.

Leading the team will be Arlene Melendez with 18 years of construction and development experience in South Florida. The project will be constructed and managed entirely by women, which includes machine operators, excavators, masons, plumbers, electricians, carpenters, painters, and more.

La  Elaina Apartments is a new duplex rental town home development in Little Havana, Miami,  FL.


Metronomic recognizes the strong need for “extended-family  living” in Little Havana.

La Elaina offers separate living environments within the home, with private living areas for extended family members, caregivers, roommates and other supportive members of the family.


La Elaina is designed uniquely for larger families, and for families that have a need for extended family members or a support system to reside within the home of the primary tenant, such as in-laws, elderly relatives, recent arrivals from foreign countries, and  such. It is also suitable for families with special-needs children or relatives that require the special care of a live-in nurse, nanny or caregiver to live in the home, providing separate rooms for treatment and care. The first floor can provide accessibility options for such needs.


Metronomic will expand the La Elaina duplex “extended-family lifestyle” model throughout the community of Little Havana and similar communities of Miami where the need for extended family living is  strong. Stay tuned for numerous La Elaina Apartments that are currently in the pre-development stages throughout Little Havana.
