Lawsuit sends Miami Worldcenter back to city commission

For the second time, the Miami City Commission will vote on incentives for the Miami Worldcenter development.

A lawsuit was filed against Miami Worldcenter by one of its tenants after the commission approved the agreement in September. Grand Central Lounge and attorney Paul Savage argued that Miami Worldcenter didn’t follow proper procedures for the vote. They said amendments to the agreement weren’t made public before the vote, and parts of the agreement violate state law.

The agreement was reportedly for Miami Worldcenter to hire local works in exchange for zoning exemptions.

Savage argued that the City Commission cannot grant such exemptions without a more involved process with public notice.

Grand Central sits on property owned by Miami Worldcenter. The developer sought to evict Grand Central once before.

The agreement will be read on February 12 and again on February 26, The Next Miami reported. [The Next Miami]Sean Stewart-Muniz
