Miami Innovation District Developer Plans Overtown Folklife Village

One of Overtown’s biggest landowners wants to build a cultural center.

Michael Simkins, who is working to develop the Miami Innovation District, told The Real Deal that he is planning to develop the Historic Overtown Folklife Village.

It would include “different restaurants and even a nightlife jazz club,” he said.

The Southeast Overtown/Park West Community Redevelopment Agency is a partner in the project.
