City Wants Developer To Buy And Possibly Demolish Miami Riverside Center

The city’s administration building on the Miami River has been listed for sale, but it won’t be an easy deal to close.

Miami Riverside Center, a 320,000-square-foot administration building built in 1992, sits on the two acre property. Another acre of city-owned land is adjacent to the office building.

City manager Daniel Alfonso told the Herald that a buyer would need to build a new, modern building for the city on cheaper land. He also said that the site may be worth more than the value of the new property, in which case a developer would need to make up the difference.

A voter referendum would be required for any deal.
