Celebrity fashion designer Naeem Khan is planning to open a new fashion house on the Miami River. The facility would manufacture clothing for Khan’s high-end brand.

The property, a county-owned lot located at 1175 Northwest South River Drive, would combine a manufacturing space with a training center, according to the Miami Herald.

Miami-Dade County commissioners have given their initial approval to the Khan organization, even offering discounted rent and the option to eventually purchase the vacant property.

Khan plans to spend $6 million developing the 30,000-square-foot building.

“We’re big on modeling. We’re a hot destination. Fashion feeds right into that,” said Bruno Barreiro, the county commissioner who sponsored the land package. [Miami Herald]Christopher Cameron
