Renderings Of Drivers Club Miami, Designed By Architect Norman Foster

Drivers Club Miami is being planned in the Opa Locka and Miami Gardens area, with design by architect Norman Foster.

In addition to a private club, the development will include a luxury resort hotel, retail and restaurants.

A race circuit is also being built, and will run 2.3 miles.

Miami-Dade has agreed to provide 160 acres of land for the project, at a lease that is below market rate. In addition, the county is providing $2 million to the developer in subsidies in exchange for creating 100 jobs on the property.

The project is estimated to cost $100 million. Carlos de Narvaez Steuer is the developer, operating under an entity called 13 Pista, LLC.

We need more development in this area of Miami Dade. With the stadium hosting events year round and the new mall, this area should be booming with retail restaurants and hotels.

they’re going to build a tree-lined driving track for tourists to race their supercars on? there is a zero percent change any insurance company is going to allow them to build what their renders look like.

Disagree with the negative comments. This is a new development in an area that could use it. It is also very close to Opa Locka airport (the main entry point for private jets to the Miami area). This is a “complementary” service for those folks. In addition to the new jobs, it has the potential to bring in more high spending tourists to Miami Dade county.
Note: more economic development has recently come to the Opa Locka airport with the Amazon distribution center, etc.
Overall, it is a win.

Would you rather they take the jobs somewhere else or have the city subsidize part of the money which they will ultimately get back through new jobs being created?

This is pretty darn cool. Just another project to add to the many that is turning Miami into the coolest city in America. Much love from an Overtown Owner from the Northeast.

What legitimate reason does the county have to subsidize this BS??

Anonymous

The assumption is that the developer is going to create a permanent amount of new jobs (and part time jobs for construction). With the new jobs comes more salary to individuals which they will spend it (ie more sales tax) and the general area will see an increase in property values (ie higher property taxes) to an area of Miami dade county that could use the improvements

Does anyone know what this is? What’s a drivers club?

And it’s going to include a resort hotel? That would help create income from Miami Gardens and attract tourists to the area and gentrify Miami Gardens to clean up the area. But will it price people out?

muh gentrify the buzzword for you “woke”. Also this is a nice part of Miami Gardens, the entire city isn’t poor unlike how you woke folk try to portray us.

How about we instead invest in the community so that the people who live their now have more money in their pockets instead of bringing in rich northerners and foreigners to price locals out of our own communities?

The project is an investment. Who do you propose will want to bring millions of dollars of their money to invest in the “community”? In many other parts of the country the only investment they can hope to get is a large factory. Would you rather get a venue that will have a relatively small development footprint but bring in large tax revenues? The city should not subsidize the project, but of all the alternatives it seems as a whole a good option.

No offense but how do you expect we invest better into the community? let me guess…by providing more jobs? No rich person coming into Miami dade will ever consider living in Miami Gardens and price people out. Sure, it is possible that over time your rent will increase if you are a renter but if you are an owner in that area your property taxes get capped each year and if this development does its intended job the local owners of homes in that area will be able to see a nice increase in their home value

There you are again, assuming people in Miami Gardens can’t afford it and will be priced out. If you don’t know what a Driver’s Club is, look it up you jackass.
