A City of Miami board is slated to vote on a proposal to increase the allowed density of downtown’s Miami Worldcenter development and give city staff authority to review some future zoning changes to the project site.

The city manager is expected to present the idea to the Planning, Zoning and Appeals Board during its Monday meeting. The primary objective of the manager’s motion is to integrate the 4.7-acre former home of the Miami Arena, where a large convention center and hotel project is planned. But the list of modifications includes doubling the 25-acre Worldcenter site’s density to 785,000 square feet per acre from 765,000 square feet for the whole development.

Another proposed tweak would give the city’s planning director the power to review certain future zoning code exemptions, according to the Daily Business Review. The 12-member board or City Commission presently has the opportunity to weigh in on such requests, with the public getting opportunities to share their thoughts and concerns.
