Proposals For Olympia Theater, Fort Dallas Park On Hold

Unsolicited proposals to redevelop two high-profile downtown Miami properties have been put on hold.

Related Group had proposed to demolish and rebuild a residential tower above the historic Olynpia Theater, while Sanctus Spiritus LLC wanted to develop a restaurant at Fort Dallas Park, while also renovating a historic building on the site.

Discussion on both proposals was deferred indefinitely at a September 19 commission meeting, according to Miami Today.

Commissioner Ken Russell asked for both items to be deferred, saying more study was needed.
