Photo Of Moishe Mana Visiting Flagler Street With Architects To Prepare Plans

Moishe Mana continues to plan for renovations on Flagler Street in downtown Miami where he is the biggest landlord in the area.

Last week, Mana posted a photo of a site visit to Flagler Street with a person who appears to be architect Bernard Zyscovich.

Mana has said he is buying as many properties as he can in the area, where he sees tremendous potential.

After a purchase last month, he owns owns $315 million worth of real estate spread over 40 properties in downtown Miami. That includes about 1.65 million square feet of office and retail space and about 317,000 square feet of land.

Mana plans to redevelop his portfolio into retail, office and residential projects that will become a vibrant, round-the-clock community.

One of the properties will house the Miami International University of Art & Design. The school will occupy 70,000 square feet at 155 S. Miami Ave. after facing an eviction lawsuit from Resorts World Miami at its current Biscayne Boulevard location.

Whats hilarious is that he clearly called someone to photo him sitting there and pointing at a building. Hes clearly worked up over the perception that hes a glorified slumlord who does nothing with his properties. I mean he’s owned the building hes pointing at for three years and all thats happened is that the ground level retail is now vacant.

Maybe next time he will call TNM and have a some architectural papers out and a hard hat on. That will really convince people, but Mana might not want to splurge for the $10 hard hat. The architectural design papers might be expensive too but he would just get a souvenir one from the Empire State Building for $8, just make sure no one sees it too closely. It might give it away that its not the Biscayne Building when theres a sketch of King Kong hanging over a spire.

I can’t believe you guys. Mana is entitled to buy as many properties as he likes, hold on to them as long as he wants and do with them as he pleases. I get it, I also would like him to get moving and do something but really guys, he is not stupid. The market dictates action and movement not our fantasy desires and wishes for an urban utopia

It also requires he keeps his buildings up to code, safe, and in a maintained condition. In addition, it requires him to pay taxes which he is trying to get out of.

Yeah, all his buildings are NOT to code. Don’t you see the wires hanging in the windows, open doors and windows, graffiti, etc.? Also see Chapter 4 of the City Code of Ordinances. Having vacant, blighted buildings is also against code. How is it the “market” immediately surrounding his hell hole district has seen so many projects come online (CentralStation, WorldCenter, X Miami, Centro, Muze, Monarc, etc.). That seems highly arbitrary that within one square mile one block has a different market from another. Imagine investing tens of millions into a project only to see it impacted by your slum neighbor. Downtown doesn’t have enough local restaurants or shops. If Mana’s crap wasn’t vacant and had shops and restaurants, maybe downtown wouldn’t become a ghost town past 6pm.

The market has been exactly the same for the last 15 years. Despite the Herald’s fluff piece amnesia, this guy has been buying land in the CBD since well before the Great Recession and has still done nothing with any of his holdings.

That was almost two years ago lol. He promised he would be building “within months” and what do you know? Two years later we get this clown posing for photos and staring at the sky.

Flagler Station on Flagler Street looks like it’s going to collapse any day. Please go up to the mezzanine food court where the few remaining restaurants are struggling. Take the elevator, the escalator hasn’t worked for months.

I don’t know who’s worse, Mana or Zyscovich. What a disaster of a team, almost makes me happy that Mana doesn’t build anything. If he did we’d be subject to the Z-man’s terrible designs.

Oh, you mean like some of these same people who come on this site and tell “GRINGOS” from up north that they don’t want them here in this city and to stay outta Miami?

I have had Mexicans correct my Spanish, and when they ask me who and where did I learn to speak a certain word in Spanish, I say I’m from Miami and learned how to say it from the Cubans. The Mexicans have told me to ask them how to say a Spanish word because they say Cubans speak “garbage Spanish.” I’ve never felt insulted or demeaned by it, I just took their word for it and started asking them how to speak and write it because Spanish is their language just like English is mine.

True story.

Hey TNM, stop deleting my comments. If people whom I said nothing to want to attack me, I have a right to attack back. If you don’t like what I’m saying to them, then delete their comment also.
