Moishe Mana Went Shopping Yesterday For Flagler Street Pavers

Downtown Miami’s historic Flagler Street is set to be rebuilt this spring with a design that is more pedestrian friendly, and developer Moishe Mana said he went shopping yesterday to pick out pavers.

It isn’t clear if Mana is picking the pavers for the entire street or just one of his own projects there.

Mana wrote on Instagram that picking the right color isn’t easy. The developer said that he was “out and about all morning” in his search for the right paving bricks, and appears to have found one that he likes.

Mana also wrote that his first move of 2020 was to sell his Miami Beach home and move into an apartment in Wynwood that overlooks his property there.

Last summer, city commissioners approved spending $20.5 million to $22.5 million on the Flagler Street project. A special taxing district was also approved to fund ongoing maintenance from area property owners.

The curbless, pedestrian friendly Flagler design was created by architect Zyscovich and was spearheaded by Mana. Construction on an earlier design was halted after officials were shown the Mana plan.

New features for the street will include wider sidewalks, more shade, outdoor dining areas, lighting and signage improvements, public art, and smart city technology. There will be patterned cobblestone-style pavers, curbless drains, railroad-themed streetscapes and enhanced landscaping.

Pedestrians and cars will be at the same level in the new design, and bollards will allow for the complete closure of the street to automobile traffic. Some parking will be removed in favor of seating areas for restaurants.

Work is scheduled to begin in spring 2020, after the Super Bowl.

Swire and other developers pay out of pocket to fix streets and neighborhoods, and do it in record time. This clown holds on to property then shakes down the city to pay for his “vision”…he’s a crook and a clown 🤡

Love the fact that you added a clown face, I could not agree with you more. I am so sick of hearing about this guy, he is the Bizarro to the Melos, they get things done, he just sits on his toys and does nothing!

Lol if the city actually let this clown pick out pavers. He’s done NOTHING for almost two decades. He painted an old warehouse in Wynwood. Meanwhile his properties in the CBD are blighted and mostly vacant. Get this parasite away from Miami.

Isn’t this a public street? Why is Mana picking pavers? Shouldn’t the designers be doing that?

Exactly. Very suspicious. A total fake.

He is holding the bigger stick at this point, if the City re-develops the street, THEN (he says) he will redevelop the buildings (city permit fees) and build a tech hub in the corridor worth millions of dollars in investment. So the City is salivating about future tax revenue, however, i believe he will most likely sell once the street reconstruction is completed at 4 times the original value.

I guess picking pavers IS easier than actually starting on ANY OF YOUR PROJECTS

I will gather a bunch of homeless folks to sign their Thank you notes Mana.

If the new surface doesn’t allow for simple gum clean up it’s another waste of money just like the wide sidewalks in front of the courthouse.

His vision is cool, his execution is terrible

From what I see, his vision is the least amount of work possible, and won’t even do anything.

Pavers and pedestrian-friendly don’t go hand-in-hand. Pavers create a problem for anyone using a walker, cane, wheelchair, or in heels.

It does not look someone having a vision for Flagler. It simply does not look good. Same crapy buildings with pain. The rendering is just whatever.

Flagler street improvement design should be given to Cutis+Rogers Design (not Zyscovich)

Anonymous

For your info, the design has always been by Curtis+Rogers, ask for a copy of the plans, sheets H (for Hardscape). Zyscovich worked only on the renderings and is designing the future Mana buildings, nothing on the street.

So, Moishe Mana wants to eliminate all street parking from Flagler Street downtown, and it looks like from adjoining cross streets, too.

Let me take a wild guess: Moishe Mana owns downtown parking garages?
