Artistic Collins Parking Garage in Miami Beach Hadid design coming soon

The Miami Beach City Commission on Wednesday agreed to issue a new request for proposals to build a city-owned garage in the booming Collins Park neighborhood.

The planned garage for 340 23rd Street has been on hold for several years after city officials balked at an original proposal submitted by the late architect Zaha Hadid, which city officials said would have cost nearly double what the city had originally planned.

While they approved the request for proposals, the commission dropped a residential use requirement that could have led to housing being built either on the site or within the garage. Commissioner Joy Malakoff, a longtime advocate of affordable housing for Miami Beach workers, told The Real Deal housing could be added later if needed, but parking is the overriding need at the moment in the heavily congested neighborhood.

Other commissioners stressed that any garage on the site should contain ground floor retail. An evaluation committee narrowed seven original proposals for the garage down to four bidders with KVC Constructors as the top bidder, Plaza Construction Inc., as No. 1, Finrock as the third ranked and Kaufman Lynn as the fourth. KVC has worked on five major garage projects in Miami-Dade, including the Braman Motors Parking Garage, City View Parking Garage, Museum Parking Garage, the Palms Parking Garage and Wynwood Parking Garage, according to city documents.
