Commissioners in the city of Opa-locka have changed city code to encourage a Midtown Miami-style mixed-use development to include multifamily housing, office space and retail, South Florida Business Journal reported.

More lax zoning for the proposed Mixed-Use Overlay District, adopted July 10, would apply to development along Northwest 135th Street, Northwest 42nd Avenue, State Road 9, Northwest 22nd Avenue, Northwest 27th Avenue, Ali Baba Avenue and portions of Opa-locka Boulevard.

The district would be modeled after Midtown, a mixed-use development anchored by Target that has blossomed with Miami’s real estate recovery.

Developers within the district would be entitled to special privileges that zoning restrictions prohibit elsewhere in the city, according to the Journal.

“The mixed-use district is a catalyst to building complete, compact and complex neighborhoods because it facilitates easy access to where people live, work, play and shop,” Opa-locka Mayor Myra Taylor was quoted as saying. [SFBJ]Emily Schmall
