The shuttered Westview Country Club will soon become a business park and retail development.

Developer Robert Saland plans to bring his proposal for the 196-acre site before Miami-Dade County’s Development Services Division by year’s end, according to Miami Today.

“The next step is zoning and site planning,” Saland, president of Landmark Companies, said. “We are in discussions with a large international developer of business parks for the non-retail portion of the property.”

The proposal call for 400,000 square feet of retail split on either side of 119th Street, an 800,000-square-foot business park, and a 700,000-square-foot distribution center. Saland estimates the project will cost $200 million.

“This will be a game-changer for the area surrounding the Gratigny Expressway,” Saland said. “It will be the first new business park built there in 30 years. Right now, it’s vacant land. The business park will be built along the same quality of new construction as what’s going up in Doral now.” [Miami Today]Christopher Cameron
