Deal For Overtown Block 55 Set For Vote

The Southeast Overtown/Park West Community Redevelopment Agency Board of Commissioners will meet March 1 to discuss plans to develop Block 55.

Two proposals were submitted to develop the block. A selection committee has ranked Swerdlow Group’s Sawyers Landing proposal ahead of Adler Group’s Overtown Central.

Sawyer’s Landing has Letters of Intents for 71% of space, with tenants rumored to be Saks Off Fifth, Petsmart, and LA Fitness. Total leasable retail and entertainment space is 220,000 square feet, along with 115 workforce housing units.

The board vote will authorize the agency to enter into negotiations. Once terms are agreed, the deal would come back for a final vote.
