Downtown Miami Streets May Become Narrower By Code, Helping Developers

Miami’s code may soon be modified for narrower street widths in parts of downtown Miami.

If commissioners approve, portions of three downtown streets would have legally narrower widths: 5th Street, 6th Street and 1st Avenue.

The new rules would benefit property owners, who may be permitted to develop based on the less restrictive calculations.

Miami commissioners are scheduled to vote on the changes at a meeting July 26.
