Miami Dade College: Best Use For Downtown Land Is Parking Garage

On a downtown Miami lot, Miami Dade College is building a precast parking garage that will serve the Wolfson campus.

The college decided that the six-level garage is the highest and best use for the 1.1-acre property at 300 NE 2 AVE. Construction is already underway.

Unlike MDC’s property on Biscayne Boulevard, the college never allowed developers to bid on it. Instead, it was bid out to directly to construction contractors specifically for a garage.

Just down the block from the new garage, Moishe Mana and another developer are vying to build a project on a .85-acre lot owned by the Miami Parking Authority. That tower could reach as high as 55 stories.
