Downtown Courtyard By Marriott Owner Conducting Traffic Study, Hinting At Redevelopment

The owner of the Courtyard by Marriott Miami Downtown/Brickell Area has hired a traffic consultant, which could indicate that redevelopment is being considered.

Miami Convention Center Hotel Corp, controlled by AVR Realty Company of New York, hired Kimley Horn & Associates to conduct a traffic impact study, city records show.

Kimley Horn registered as a lobbyist on behalf of the owner this month.

The property is across from Met 3, which includes a highly popular Whole Foods Market along with 462 apartments.

Up to 1,070 residential units are allowed on the site under the Miami 21 zoning code. In 2014, the property was marketed with an expected price of up to $100 million, but never sold.

i cannot name any other city on earth that just throws buildings up in whatever available space all over the urban core with not one shred of infrastructural improvements that might make the citys quality of life improve….this will be nearly impossible to correct at some point very soon….such a shame… we could really be doing this right for everyone concerned

Dude, there are still hundreds upon hundreds of empty lots and acres in Miami that needs to be developed, so what are you talking about?

Infrastructure improvements? What Miami need to do first is the making over of whole neighborhoods and then infrastructure will follow.

What? Are you oblivious to the fact that there have been ongoing infrastructure improvements in down town for the last decade?
What do you think those closed lanes and big holes in the ground are?

The education of our citizens should be a big priority…

WOW.

The “Ultramont Mall” across the street has to go like twenty years ago. It was meant to be a placeholder until tall development was proposed. Same with where Marshalls is on Flagler Street, and what existed where 50 Biscayne stands, which was also supposed to be Miami’s tallest building until the early 90s recession canceled it.

Redevelopment would be great, but hopefully it hinges upon a complete redo of this US1 spur that turns downtown into one big onramp-slash-highway median. Narrow our streets back down to neighborhood size, make 2nd Avenue two-way with huge trees and protected bike lanes to the city, if not county, line. Discourage through trips by car on this route. Remove the 95 onramp (leave the offramp I guess) and make people use the others around downtown instead.
