It ain’t bad for a Costco. Everything else in the complex would work with access to a Coastal Link station across

No Coastal Link access, unless you want to run across 6+ lanes of Biscayne Blvd with FDOT’s 30 seconds of crosswalk.

Overpass, duh. It’s not like anywhere else in North Miami is viable for a station because the downtown area is too west. Also, the city would rather throw its money at some ridiculous Chinatown scheme.

Overpass is not pedestrian friendly. Put Biscayne on a road diet instead.

Obviously you have to do stuff elsewhere to support the reduction of lanes, but most examples were nothing but successful with minimal traffic impacts.

Sure, but getting the yes from FDOT is like pulling teeth.

Reason #234232 not to live up in that area. Traffic is so bad and it will only get worse. Who wants to spend hours in their car a day?

Are you just “whining” for the sake of whining? What makes you think someone will spend “hours” in their car if they want to go to this store? Unless they’re coming from Jupiter or Homestead, hours in a car is so far fetched.

Lol costco has been on board since they bought the project. They were going to sign with the previous owner. Big whoop.

The existing Costco is in North Miami Beach, not North Miami.

This development is right behind the current Costco, tough guy. You know, being built on the remnants of a toxic dump.
