Miami commissioners will vote Thursday on three major development projects that would see millions of square feet in residential, commercial and hotel space come to the city’s urban core, the Miami Herald reported.

The largest of the developments is a 9-acre Brickell CitiCenter project, which would spread 4.68 million square feet of mixed-use development over three and a half mostly vacant blocks south of the Miami River. The administration of Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado is a co-applicant along with developer Swire Properties. The city’s planning and zoning board unanimously recommended approval of the project last week.

Also being considered are two 27-story residential towers, coincidentally called City Center, on the border between Overtown and the Park West warehouse district west of Biscayne Boulevard.

The commission will also review a proposed change to 1700 Biscayne, a project approved during the building boom. Developers want to add a third tower. City planners have recommended approval of City Center and 1700 Biscayne with certain conditions. [Miami Herald]
