Gary Nader’s Plan For Condo, Hotel Towers And Museum On Biscayne Boulevard

Former Related Group president Roberto Rocha has teamed with art dealer Gary Nader on a plan to develop a Biscayne Boulevard property owned by Miami Dade College.

The proposal calls for replacing a 2.56-acre surface parking lot owned by MDC at 520 Biscayne Boulevard with a project that includes:

  • Tower A – 144 condo/hotel units (142,272 rentable sf), 228 luxury residential condo units (450,718 sellable sf)
  • Tower B – 300 luxury residential condo units (692,100 sellable sf)
  • Latin American Art Museum (122,902 sf)
  • Theater (1,600 seat)
  • Conference Center (29,150 sf)

Nader’s proposal, called ‘Museu’ was unsolicited, and MDC is asking for alternative bids from other developers, due early November. In a May letter, Nader had said that he hoped to begin marketing the project during this year’s Art Basel.

Fernando Romero Enterprise is the architect.
