This Is Your Chance To Develop MDC’s Biscayne Boulevard Surface Parking Lot

Think you can put together a better proposal than Gary Nader for Miami Dade College’s prime land on Biscayne Boulevard? Here’s your chance.

MDC will require you to build for them the following, which will be owned and controlled by the College:

  • A Cultural Center containing : A performing arts theater with a minimum capacity of 1,600 seats. The theater should incorporate all the necessary back stage elements and the ability to decrease the space capacity of the theater in order to accommodate smaller audiences.
  • A conference center with a minimum capacity of 3,000 people which shall include break-out rooms and storage rooms.
  • A museum space of at least 100,000 square feet including educational facilities, office space, storage rooms and other complimentary ancillary facilities.
  • All the necessary state-of-the-art furniture, fixtures and equipment for the Cultural Center.
  • Prominent frontage for the College on Biscayne Boulevard.
  • Parking for the 228 surface spaces to be displaced by the proposed development of the Property and any additional parking needs of the Project.

A pre-proposal meeting will be held on November 4, 2015, and proposals will be accepted until January 19, 2016.
