The Miami Gardens City Council will consider an application to build 401 homes just west of State Road 7.

The city council will consider the application from Arlington, Virginia-based Graham Holdings Co. on Wednesday. Miami attorney Graham Penn is representing Graham Holdings in the application process.

A subsidiary of Graham Holdings paid $5 million in 2014 for the proposed 37-acre development site at 502 Northwest 207 Street.

A television tower is the only structure on the site acquired by Graham Holdings, which formerly owned South Florida television station WPLG-Channel 10 as well as the Washington Post daily newspaper.

Graham Holdings applied to build 456 homes on the Miami Gardens site in 2016 and has since reduced the density of its proposed development.

Proposed zoning for the site would allow construction of 113 townhouses there plus 288 units of multi-family housing, including a minimum of 120 units that would be sold as condos.  [South Florida Business Journal] – Mike Seemuth
