Miami Beach Unveils Plan To Create “Downtown” In North Beach

For years, Miami Beach’s North Beach neighborhood has remained depressed relative to the rest of the city.

Now, planners have revealed Plan NoBe, which aims to revitalize the area.

The proposal includes turning 71st street into a “downtown,” with new zoning that would permit building heights of up to 12 stories.

Some areas would be designated historic, with property owners able to sell air rights to fund renovations.

The proposal was revealed by planners yesterday, and is scheduled to presented to the public at a meeting tonight. Read the full proposal here:
