Next to Brickell City Centre, a vacant lot could soon be activated with an entertainment complex.
A Temporary Use Permit application is pending for the property at 451 South Miami Avenue, and construction work is already underway. The proposal was reviewed by the Miami River Commission’s Urban Infill and Greenways Subcommittee at a March 20 meeting.
