PROPOSED NEW US1 DEVELOPMENT
The City of South Miami is in the process of reviewing an application for the redevelopment of a 5.37-acre site (a/k/a “Petco Center”) at US1 & SW 62 Avenue.
The application with necessary enabling legislation would convert the existing 1950s one story multi-tenant shopping center of 71,842 sq.ft., into an 8-story mixed use project containing 395,695 sq.ft. of gross floor area: 50,056 of ground floor grocery, restaurant and retail uses; 284 rental apartments, 481 parking spaces and 7 loading spaces; landscaping, public spaces and a public park.
The project will be reviewed by the Planning Board with recommendations passed on to the City Commission for their further consideration. SOMI Magazine will provide our readers with periodic updates.
