Miami-Dade seeks seeks out proposals for public housing redevelopment

The Miami-Dade Public Housing Agency has issued a request for proposals to redevelop more than 100 existing public housing developments with new designs resembling market-rate units, the South Florida Business Journal reported.

The deals could be good news for the county’s beleaguered construction industry.

“As we enter a new age in public housing development, this RFP will position Miami-Dade County to better meet the needs of those in desperate need of affordable housing,” Mayor Carlos Giminez said. “As this initiative evolves, it will ensure one-for-one replacement of existing public housing units, the building of new affordable housing on under-developed land, and the creation of jobs during rehabilitation and construction.” [SFBJ]
