Special Area Plan In The Works For Lemon City

A property owner in Lemon City (which was recently renamed Little Haiti) could be planning a large project.

Cho Dragon’s Magic City Properties (controlled by Robert Zangrillo and Tony Cho) recently met with city officials about the possibility of a Special Area Plan under the Miami 21 zoning code. The SAP designation is rare since it requires an assemblage of at least 9 acres, and provides more flexibility to developers.

One of the properties in the assemblage is the six-acre Magic City Trailer Park at 6001 NE 2nd Ave. Cho Dragon paid $15 million for it in 2014, and has been acquiring neighboring properties since then.

Cho Dragon is represented by Neisen Kasdin of Akerman Senterfitt. Kasdin’s clients include Brickell City Centre, All Aboard Florida, Miami Beckham United, and Dacra’s Design District.

Why still call it Lemon City? You admittedly know it is now called LITTLE HAITI!!!

Anonymous

It was called Lemon City for most of its existence. Also, most of the original Haitian diaspora residents moved back, or up to North Miami and Miramar. The “official” change was only done because the city would be called racist if they didn’t comply.

Lately, developers would rather use “Lemon City” or “Little River” to market their projects. The library has always been refereed to as the “Lemon City” branch. The Haitians who actually reside in the area could care less about what the neighborhood is called, as long as they can make end’s meet.

Wrong. From what I have heard repeatedly, many tourists have heard of the neighborhood “Little Haiti”, and they really are attracted to Haitian shops, restaurants, etc. Changing the name to Lemon City makes no sense, as it has been Little Haiti since the 1970s.

Neighborhoods like Overtown and Lemon City/Little Haiti DID make Miami at one point. But history has not been kind to them for various reasons and now they’re both being exploited for financial/development gains do to their previous exploitation.

The funny thing is that DEVELOPERS are the ones who are opposed to the name change because “Little Haiti” is harder to sell to foreigners and snowbirds than “Lemon City”. Even if they’re fighting for the same cause, they’re not fighting for the same reasons.

Gentrification isn’t racist. It does not care what color you are. Supply and Demand sets prices for almost everything including rents and housing. If you cant afford it, then you simply cannot live there. Nobody is entitled to anything. The areas close to downtown and the core are hot spots and wanted by many people which drives up prices. Its unfortunate for poor people, but you can’t stop progress.

First of all, I really suggest that you learn the history of Miami first before commenting. But, in case you don’t know, the city of Miami was once a segregated southern backwater town. Overtown, for example, has slowly but surely devolved from what it once was. This was once known as “colored town” because of Jim Crow laws. I-95 was purposefully built through Overtown to rid the residents out of the area in the early 1960s. Over time, it has declined into poverty and blight, and the city never did anything to alleviate the immense poverty. They just let it rot, until eventually gentrification swept it up. Once Downtown Miami got more built up, developers quickly moved into the area and swiftly (or are continuing to do so) removed the last remaining longtime residents whose roots go back generations. I’m sorry if you don’t see the fault in that, but to me that is really screwed up. And yes, it is racist because people of color in Miami DO NOT have the same upward mobility as the out-of-town and foreign born population does. It just so happens that most of these folks are white. Understand?

People change homes.. it’s normal occurrence.. what law says people have to stay in same neighborhood always? This gentrification argument is just stupid.

Anonymous
5 years ago

While Overtown was impacted the most from I-95 because the I-395 interchange, it also leveled a lot of neighborhoods with White, Hispanic, Jewish, Arab, etc. residents. At the time, most people wanted to get out of Overtown anyway, which the creation of Liberty Square and Edison Courts are attributed to. With people returning to the inner city, returning Overtown to its roots is achievable. Contrary to what people believe, gentrification doesn’t destroy a community’s roots, because it wouldn’t be an issue if a place is healthy. Urban renewal by the federal government destroyed roots, and included constructing freeways.

suomynona

You lose ALL credibility when you say I-95 leveled Arab neighborhoods. And Overtown was a black neighborhood and it was undeniably changed – if not destroyed – by the highway. You CANNOT deny that.

Anonymous

You lose ALL credibility if you think Overtown was completely destroyed, because efforts to preserve it wouldn’t exist if the neighborhood didn’t exist anymore. At least Little Haiti still contains tangible assets from its Lemon City and Little River period.

FYI, Miami had a sizable Lebanese (hence Arab) population concentrated near present-day Brickell. It also had many Armenians and Greeks. I never said Overtown wasn’t a black neighborhood, rather I-95 displaced many residents along its extent through Miami as a whole.

Anonymous

So you’re referring to Brickell and not Overtown, right? We’re talking about Overtown here and I- 95 didn’t destroy Brickell. It DID change Overtown for the worse and that is undeniable like suomynona said. Way to spend things your way and completely brush over the facts.

I think color people have the same or even more (since they are American citizens) upward mobility if they stop being depending on social security, the fathers take responsibility for their kids and respect their wives instead of drug dealing ( not every body does it but a large majority fit this pattern)
A suscesfull poor born African American that became a pediatric neurosurgeon said one time,
“”We don’t need a black man in the White House we need a man in every house”
Not all the foreigners are rich and a lot of immigrants specially Hispanic comes here work hard, pay their share of taxes, respect the family values and force their kids to study and stay out of drugs ( my gardener from Central America is one of those)
Stop blaming the whites for the lack of social upward movement of the colored people, after 8 years of a black president they still the same!!!

-a culture of learning is established by your family and community. If someone truly wants to learn there are so many resources outside of public schooling that there is no excuse. So instead of asking for public schools, which are a joke anyways, ask how to establish a culture of learning. Subsidized Internet or eBook readers is something needed IMO.

-moderately safe neighborhoods aren’t given they are grown. Developing empty lots into places with pedestrians at many different times of day is very helpful.

-encourage business – again this is a development problem.

Public schools are a joke? Now I know you have just lost all credibility on that take. Especially when the public school system in Miami-Dade county has improved immensely over the past decade. You cannot deny that. I bet you are the same person that claims public libraries are a joke too.

Anonymous

IMO real learning happens on your own. The school system both public and private teach you very basic subjects and won’t get you very far by themself. If you want to be smart and knowledgable it’s on you to read, watch documentaries and talks, have discussions, etc. That is why it’s important to have a culture of learning and not simply rely public education.

If your family, friends, and celebrities you look up to don’t promote a culture of learning then any form of forced schooling won’t matter. It will turn into a glorified daycare where the bare minimum is accepted as ok.

Anyone in the world has access to the entire scope of humanity’s knowledge if they have a reliable internet connection. They need to be encouraged to take advantage of it. Think of how smart Thomas Jefferson and Ben Franklin were. Every book they ever read is for free online. YouTube has hundreds of hours of lectures from the best and brightest in their field. Online courses are popping up for every subject and many are free. Even schools like Stanford and Harvard are opening up free online classes.

I don’t think public libraries are a joke as they fit in exactly with my opinion that learning is self motivated. I do think they need to be modified for the 21st century and be more internet heavy but that’s another topic.

I agree with one of the comments below as Miami development gets closer and closer in poor areas. Its good and bad more less biter sweet. Yes it’s cleaning up worn down areas but push folks out that’s just getting by. Property value goes up making it impossible to afford for most. Those people are what made these areas what they are and we allow them to be pushed out by developers that can care less as long as they make money. We push the people out that live here for people with money who only live here in the winter or a few times out the year. Its nice to see a condo built cleaning up the area but wine up being a half empty building that sits there with no life.

These developers don’t care to much about the culture of an area all they care about at the moment is how cheap they can buy the land vs the proximity it is to DT & Brickell and the availability of public transport to DT and Brickell. Miami’s poor people have historically migrated to areas with public transport due to the cost of owning a car and now that public transportation is popular for middle class people most developers are taking advantage of that and pushing the poor out of these centrally located areas and most of these poor people are moving out to homestead and other low cost housing areas.
