Moishe Mana Working Daily To Make Miami Project A ‘Game Changer,’ Preparing List Of Concessions

Mosihe Mana is still working hard to build a project that he says will be a game changer for Miami.

In an interview published by the Biscayne Times last week, Mana said that would be presenting a “package of demands,” including tax breaks, to the city and county.

In a statement released to The Next Miami, Mana clarified his words.

“We are working daily to make our project a game changer for Miami. Our projects are not about putting up a building and renting or selling the units. It’s been six years of daily planning, constant travel and connecting the world to Miami across all layers, including tech, fashion, art, entertainment, trades and more,” Mana said.

“Yes, President Trump is becoming a stumbling block in making Miami a global trade hub. His policies are closing the gates, denying visas, going back to the coal business, starting trade wars and isolating America from the world stage.

“We continue to value and appreciate Miami authorities and are working to develop a list of necessary concessions. After all, it is no secret that Miami still has room for growth in terms of attracting industries and business.”

In the interview last week, Mana said to not expect to see his project built right away, saying it wasn’t just a single building but rather entirely new communities.

“It’s going to take some time. We need to protect the money,” Mana said. “It’s billions of dollars of investment, but we’re working on it. I didn’t buy these properties to keep them empty, to warehouse them.”

He also complained that the taxes he pays to Miami-Dade and the city of Miami have “tripled.”

Mana is particularly upset over a $100,000 bill from the City of Miami for impact fees to donate space to FIU’s College of Communications, Architecture & the Arts. Mana called the fee “robbery,” and has delayed CARTA’s move to his property at 2215 NW 22nd St indefinitely.

The “package of demands” that Mana is preparing for the city and county will include a 30-year tax abatement, a reduction in parking requirements, changes to the impact fee structure, and tax incentives for new businesses moving to the City of Miami.

The county/city would be beyond stupid to even read one word of his “demands.” He hasnt done anything with any of the property he owns. He’s a glorified slumlord and we all know it. Jack up the tax rate and get him out of here. No amount of Trump bashing is gonna undo his reputation of building NOTHING.

Weve been having this discussion on this site for over a decade with him.

Anonymous, no offense but you obviously have a personal issue with Moishe. For me, someone who did a small but good deal he is a straight up guy who delivered everything promised and more. Your hysteric attack here can’t be taken seriously, sorry.

OK , you can call me an imposer or deal with the fact that not everyone thinks the same as you.

It used to be a newspaper for educated people, talking and debating in an honorable manner.

What does Trump have to do with it? Policies about trade have been in play for less than a year, he has been buying up Miami and being a slum lord… putting no money to innovate anything…. He is a crapper flipper for $$$ buy low, holds out and then resells – not caring for the communities or improving life for residents. He needs to sit down. He can blame Trump for this one sorry, specially since the rest of the city is moving along.

The city and County Code enforcement needs to start going into all his properties and start fining him left and right till he just sells to someone that is going to build and improve the areas… Downtown is a disgrace what he has done to the retail. Soon he will start doing this to Allapattah.

His buildings are in bad shape and he has buildings in western wynwood next to I95 that are falling about and have trees growing out of them. He should be fine but it seems code enforcement is no where around.

Hes just trying to get rezoning and tax incentives on his properties for he could sell them to someone else. I talk to small business owners on Flager street in downtown and they detest him the most. His buildings have been vacant for years and he barely maintains them. He gives every excuse to not to develop.

Like him or not, Trump’s tax policy has been a Godsend for Miami developers. His properties gain in value while other people spend millions to develop land all around him. He then sells for an obscene profit and laughs all the way to the bank. Good for him, bad for Miami.

Plus other developers haven’t been throwing a fit for the past two years but Mana is saying these comments for some clout.

His statements just don’t make any sense. If he thinks his taxes are high now, wait until the dems take over.

He wouldn’t be worried about property taxes if his vacant buildings were being rent out thus generating money

Um, he purchased those properties when we had a democratic president.

I remember during the HQ2 process Miami leaders didn’t include Mana yet included an abandoned dump/industrial site in the northern part of the county. That’s how much of a joke this guy is. Flagler street should be brimming with activity with all the new residents in the area yet it is a ghost town on the weekends.

Maybe Trump should deport Moishe Mana back and deny his visa for being a slumlord.

Only thing I agree with is the impact fee for the FIU donation. I would have to look into that transaction a little closer. Knowing Moishe, he doesn’t do anything if there wouldn’t be personal (financial) gain.

But I really wish he would just leave the city (and country), he talks to much crap while literally doing nothing for the city, other than holding back communal growth.

Obviously, for all his Trump bashing he sure seems to enjoy copycatting.

Actually, if the THE NEXT MIAMI hadn’t said a word about you, no one in Miami would’ve given a second thought about you or expect anything to happen with the properties you own Mana.

Remember, this carpetbagger was run out of Brooklyn for a reason. Look at where he owned real estate, it’s booming! Mana is doing nothing but holding back any potential where he owns property.

He is LITERALLY warehousing downtown. They should tax the shit out of him until he starts releasing the massive vacant square footage he has just rotting. Ridiculous.
