A school planned in Miami’s urban core is set to become the first ever to be built by the county school system with housing for teachers built in, its architect says.
Brickell World School, a middle-school, is planned to be built as a seven-story project with capacity for 610 students.
The project is unique however, in that it will also include 10 workforce housing units, which will become apartments for teachers.
It is also the first ever collaboration between a School Board and a Public Housing Authority.
A 29-story workforce housing tower called The Gallery at West Brickell is also being built on the same property by developer Related Group. It will include 493 apartments, with groundbreaking scheduled for the third quarter of this year.
The Miami-Dade Public Housing and Community Development owns the land and is leasing it to Miami-Dade County Public Schools and to the Related Group for the two projects.
Opening of the school is scheduled for the 2022-23 school year.
