The owner of a property near the Culmer Metrorail station is requesting it be rezoned to allow for residential development.
If approved, up to 132 residential units could be built on the property, in a building rising up to 20 stories with a height boost.
Trendy Properties LLC of Coral Gables owns the properties.
In a letter, a representative of the developer said that “The highest densities and intensities should occur within walking distance of transit stops and on commercial corridors.” By doing so, it will allow compact, pedestrian-oriented and mixed-use neighborhoods that is the goal of the Miami 21 zoning code.
Miami’s Planning Department is recommending that the Planning, Zoning & Appeals Board deny the request, and instead grant a lower intensity zoning than is being requested.
