City planners eye area near Miami River for redevelopment

Miami city planners are looking at rezoning several blocks of Northwest 20th Street north of the Miami River to promote redevelopment along the street.

The city’s Planning, Zoning and Appeals Board has recommended that more than 60 acres of the street between Northwest 13th and Northwest 27th avenues be rezoned to General Commercial from Light Industrial.

Planning Director Francisco Garcia told Miami Today the increase in allowed density should attract developers to build mixed-use residential/commercial projects.

“We propose to redefine Northwest 20th Street as a mixed-use corridor,” Garcia told the paper.

However, city commissioners would have to first vote to change the zoning and the land use designation, which would increase the area’s density to 150 dwellings per acre.

That would reverse the Miami 21 development plan that reduced the area’s allowed density from 150 dwellings per acre to 36.  [Miami Today]  — Chris Guanche
