School Board Wants to Develop its Prime Downtown Land, Again

New, 1 comment

The Dade County School Board is looking at getting into the development game with its ten acres of prime Downtown Miami land. Yep, again. According to the Miami Herald, the department has looked into it multiple times already, twice in 2011, and once in 2014, and never really gone anywhere with it, but "this [time] is going to be very focused" says Jaime Torrens, the district's chief facilities officer. Meanwhile Superintendent Alberto Carvalho envisioned a partnership with a developer for a mixed-use project that could provide long-term revenue for the school district while incorporating the district's facilities. They "will never be anyone's tenant" he said.
