Two contenders to develop a parcel near the proposed All Aboard Florida station in Miami’s Overtown neighborhood will take the floor tonight to unveil their plans.

The Community Redevelopment Agency selected BDB Miami and All Aboard Florida’s proposals as the best two of the lot. The developers are vying for control of the land as part of the $1.5 billion passenger train service from Miami to Orlando. The public meeting will occur from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Camillus House, 1603 Northwest Seventh Avenue in Miami.

The agency submitted a request for proposal for the planned development of blocks 45 and 56.

All Aboard Florida, for example, wants the agency to sell the parcels across from the Lyric Theater for $5.5 million, as previously reported. The downtown train station and transportation hub would feature office space, apartments and retail outlets. Those two parcels at the corner of Northwest 8th Street and Second Avenue would hold a multi-story building for many of these purposes. [Miami Urbanist]Mark Maurer
