A Miami Dade College Evaluation Committee decided on a ranking today of four proposals to develop 520 Biscayne, according to The Real Deal editor Ina Cordle.
The weighted scores are:
Related Group/Arquitectonica – 470
Nader Latin American Art Museum/Fernando Romero – 440
Gregg Covin/Chad Oppenheim – 405
Pi Art Tech/Richter Dahl Rocha – 330
The college will now begin negotiations with the two top bidders, Related and Nader.
Pi Art Tech has been eliminated altogether, while Covin/Oppenheim is being retained as a backup.
Update: Gary Nader released a statement saying that he is excited to be one of the two finalists: “We congratulate MDC on taking the next step towards this imperative project for the city and look forward to starting negotiations.”
