Board Finally Approves Worldcenter Zoning Changes

Zoning changes needed for the Miami Worldcenter project were unanimously approved by Miami’s Planning, Zoning and Appeals Board today.

Property owners and members of the public who attended the meeting spoke in favor of Worldcenter by a 10-1 margin.

The board had deferred a vote in June after hearing from a lobbyist Paul Savage, who represented the operators of Grand Central Park and Grand Central Lounge. Savage is also representing his clients in court contesting street closures for Worldcenter, which had been previously approved. That appeal has yet to be resolved.

The city of Miami commission will vote on the zoning changes along with a new Worldcenter development agreement next week.
