Miami Seaside voters shot down a November ballot measure for business office properties on town-owned websites around Lincoln Street.
But the city even now is poised to get 10 jobs with extra than 655,000 square ft of offices on web sites other than those proposed in the referendum.
The failed referendum was for two proposed initiatives: A Don Peebles-led group, which integrated ex-Miami Beach front Mayor Philip Levine and Scott Robins, wished to make 80,000 sq. feet of places of work. A further team, led by Integra Investments and like Barry Sternlicht and Michael Comras as traders, planned on 130,000 square ft of places of work on a different close by locale.
Peebles and Robins mentioned they may test their proposal once again down the line, maybe tweaking their ideas. Integra’s Nelson Stabile mentioned the business isn’t taking into consideration yet another whack at its approach.

Developers could post an unsolicited proposal, which implies the metropolis would have to open the bidding system to any other interested developers. Or, the metropolis could once again concern a solicitation for proposals and slender down the major bidders. Either way, it would indicate starting from scratch and once again requiring a referendum.
“I imagine we are just going to hold our parking lots as floor parking tons supplied the voters’ hunger,” mentioned Mayor Dan Gelber.

Most of the builders have taken a liking to the city’s South Seaside neighborhood, which include the Sunset Harbour and South of Fifth spots. Pérez is betting on an island just off the MacArthur Causeway connecting the Beach to Miami.
