Nader Sues Miami Dade College Over 520 Biscayne Bidding

Lawyers for Nader + Museu LLP filed a lawsuit against Miami Dade College last week.

Nader is requesting that the court take emergency action. On July 12, the college’s board of trustees ranked Related Group as the top bidder for 520 Biscayne, recommending negotiations with the developer.

Nader will also be filing a formal protest over the bidding process directly with the college, according to the Herald.

Would love to see anyone but Related. Shame the Pi Center didn’t quite make it.

Agreed. Only Pi Art and Oppenheim(er?) designs bring anything of prominence to the skyline. Nader brought the best museum and museum design. Pi Art’s museum facade was very average, though, unfortunately, and Nader’s towers are rather drab (they certainly don’t exhibit the same type of unique aesthetics as the museum base).

Related didn’t even meet the minimum museum space requirements as set forth by MDC. And yet MDC turned around and awarded Related for failing to meet said obligation and punished the others for actually designing something that MDC had asked for. MDC is BACKWARDS.

Hopefully Nader wins his suit, or at least causes enough of a ruckus to reset the playing field in Miami (not just MDC).

LMAFO. The art collection of the met is estimated to be between 100billion and 400billion dollars. You do realize that that a single de Kooning recently sold for 300million.

There are 2 empty lots at 600 and 700 Biscayne. Nader should buy one of those lots and show related what a real development would look like.
