Park Across From Brickell Flatiron Could Be Transferred To Developer

Developer Allen Morris may soon gain control of a small city park, which would then become a development site.

City commissioners are scheduled to vote on the deal today.

Decades ago, Allen Morris deeded the park over to the city on the north and south side of Southwest 10th Street.

The company sued the city in 2014 claiming the city violated the deed restriction by conveying and rezoning the south parcel as part of approval for the Brickell Flatiron condo project. The city contends that the south property remains in use as a park.

As part of a settlement agreement, the city could deed over the north parcel to Allen Morris.

The developer would share profits in the project with the city, and agree to maintain a similar amount of outdoor space as currently exists.

Both Allen Morris and the owner of the adjacent Perricone’s property hired zoning attorneys in 2014, and a unity of title was also filed to unite the two sites.
