Haimov Group is listing a Miami Gardens development site for $24.5 million, after abandoning plans for a $200 million mixed-use project.

Miami Beach-based Haimov, led by Igal and Aaron Haimov, is looking to sell a 3.6-acre vacant property at 17300 Northwest Seventh Avenue Road, a listing obtained by The Real Deal shows. 

Jamie Rose Maniscalo and Elina Stolyar with Miami-based Alpha Commercial are marketing the site on behalf of Haimov, the listing shows. Aaron Haimov did not immediately respond to a voice message and a text seeking comment. 

The site, formerly home to an 11-story hospital, is zoned for multifamily, hotel, mixed-use, educational, cultural, retail, recreational and entertainment uses, the listing states. A project with a maximum height of 20 stories and a maximum density of 547 residential or hotel units can be developed on the property. 

In 2022, Haimov paid $11 million for the site and a year later tore down the concrete shell of Parkway Medical Center West, which closed more than 20 years ago, records show. The 307-bed medical building was completed in 1972.

Since the hospital closed, Miami Gardens elected officials complained that the building was an eyesore due to the exterior walls being tagged by graffiti artists throughout the years it was abandoned. 

Haimov had planned to redevelop the site with a 20-story hotel, a wedding hall and a two- to three-story convention center, the Miami Herald reported last year. “As we speak, we’re pushing full throttle,” Aaron Haimov told the newspaper at the time. “We really believe in the project.”

The development site is near Hard Rock Stadium, which is owned by billionaire developer Steve Ross and is home to his NFL franchise, the Miami Dolphins. Other famous commercial property owners in Miami Gardens include Rich Wilkerson Jr. and DawnCheré Wilkerson, pastors of Vous Church.

In January, the Wilkersons’ church paid $12 million for Trinity Church, a 100,000-square-foot religious building at 17801 Northwest Second Avenue in Miami Gardens. 

Last year, Miami rapper Flo Rida (real name Tramar Dillard) and his business manager, Lee “Freezy” Prince, dropped $10 million for a Miami Gardens retail center.
