North Miami is set to see a dramatic renovation, with plans to redevelop a downtown area, add a new multistory parking garage, retail stores and office spaces.

Arthur Sorey, the city’s budget manager, presented a plan called the three-point catalyst approach, according to the Miami Herald. The plan is based on the city’s downtown development major corridor master plan and the findings from three downtown redevelopment plan meetings.

Under the three-phase plan, the cost for the garage phase would be about $7 million, Sorey said.

And according to City Manager Aleem Ghany, the idea is to keep business and residents in the downtown area.

“The idea is to attract middle-class university students, middle-class families, people who will work and live in that area,” Ghany said.

However, plans are not even to the design stage yet and have a long way to go. The advisory committee handling the redevelopment plan aims to meet the second Friday of every month to move the project ahead. [Miami Herald] Christopher Cameron
