In April (long after construction began), Miami’s Office of Zoning issued a final decision on the Square Station project granting permission for work to begin.
As part of the approval, the developer has agreed to build a plaza open to the public for a period of 30 years, along with 96 workforce housing units. The commitment was required to get approval for rezoning to build 11 more stories and 275,576 square feet of bonus floor area.
Other waivers include a reduction in required parking from 1,173 spaces to 913 spaces thanks to proximity to Metromover. To address traffic concerns, the developer will have a minimum of six valet attendants on staff at certain times.
