About 40 acres of city-owned land near the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens has captured yet another development proposal.

Garden Square Holdings LLC, led by developer Barron Channer, submitted plans for a mixed-use project with a hotel, two office towers, restaurants and retail, according to the South Florida Business Journal.

The city, which owns the land at the northeast corner of Northwest 189th Street and Northwest 27th Avenue, is expected to negotiate terms of the deal this week. In December, it also vetted Mazex Holdings LLC, which submitted plans for a resort hotel on the site. The city could also break up the site for multiple developers.

Channer is CEO BACH Real Estate. In 2013, he partnered with Don Peebles on a proposal to build a jazz and blues-inspired multi-use district in Miami’s Overtown neighborhood, but they eventually walked away from the project. [SFBJ]Amanda Rabines
