Magic City Special Area Plan Set For Vote Today

Magic City Innovation District’s Special Area Plan is scheduled for a hearing today.

The developers are proposing to build a walkable campus, with:

  • 2,630 residential units
  • 1,987,686 square feet of office
  • 101,669 of expo space
  • 432 hotel rooms
  • 344,538 square feet of retail
  • 6,081 parking spaces in garages

In total, 17 buildings with the tallest at 24 stories are planned, spanning six city blocks.

Leasing is already underway for the first phase, which includes renovating warehouses to provide 200,000 square feet of commercial space. Renovation is already underway, with occupancy in September 2018.

The second phase of the project will include the Forest of Curiosities park created in partnership with Lune Rouge, the Montreal-based enterprise founded by Cirque de Soleil founder, Guy Laliberté. The park promotes innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship and will have a central role in the curation and creative direction of Magic City’s arts and entertainment venues.

Arquitectonica is the architect.

“Little Haiti real activists,” i.e. the other side of the anti-development coin.

I have to step in here and clarify for you idiots. Black lives matter is NOT a hate group. It is a group formed by black people who feel that the criminal justice system defends Rouge police officers who patrol their neighborhoods with the sole intent of provoking police/citizen altercations resulting in the deaths of many innocent people in the name of law enforcement. Funny how they do not patrol white neighborhoods with the same voracity as they do black neighborhoods. The term Black lives matter does not imply that the lives of others does not matter. It the term was coined to reinforce the fact that their

Continued: the term was coined to reinforce the fact that their lives matter, the same as any other life. Black lives matter work to bring about change within police departments, court systems, judges etc.

I wish Cruz would stick to efforts in preserving legitimate pre-war neighborhoods and properties east of the FEC tracks. Him and NIMBYs already got MiMo, AKA a bunch of glorified, autocentric, post-war motels protected so decent tallish buildings can’t be built, so what else do they want? More historic designation of 1940s, 50s, and 60s houses where you can’t even replace a door without taking up HPB’s time?

Nice.! I hope it gets approved and built. Little Haiti needs lots of improvement, it look’s more of a third world country when you pass by there.I’m glad gentrification is happening all over Miami. Especially in all the ghetto area of Miami, its good that all the scums are being push out.

Is 62nd St still filled with prostitutes at night? Does sex work fall under the “restricted commercial” zoning?

They are moving back to Biscayne Blvd.
I rather deal with the prostitutes than with any Morningside Civic Association pro-segregation member.
We pay taxes so they can live in a segregated neighborhood.
