Developers Want To Build On Miami Beach Municipal Parking Lots

Two developers have responded to a Miami Beach Request For Proposals that put city-owned surface parking lots in play.

Michael Simkins and Robert Finvarb want to build a hotel on what is currently a 24-space lot in the 900 block of Washington Avenue, along with an adjacent privately-owned property. The project would be designed by Perkins+Will, and include 145 hotel rooms, 247 parking spaces (including 121 municipal spaces), and 17,354 square feet of ground floor retail.

In mid-Beach, Terranova Corp. wants to build a parking garage behind their 41st Street headquarters, which would be connected by a bridge. A city-owned lot would be combined with Teranova land for a garage with up to 188 spaces, including 120 available to the public.

Update: More recent rendering of 930 Washington added.
