Background
On January 26,1993, Miami-Dade County (the “County”) adopted Resolution No.R-14-93, which, (i) found the City Center RDA to be a "blighted area" within the meaning of Part lll of Chapter 163, Florida Statutes, and (ii) delegated to the City of Miami Beach, pursuant to Section 163.410, Florida Statutes, certain powers conferred upon the County Commission as the governing body of Dade County by Part lll of Chapter 163, Florida Statutes, with regard to the Redevelopment Area, so that the City Commission, either directly or through its duly designated community redevelopment agency, could exercise such powers.

On February 3, 1993, the City adopted Resolution No. 93-20709, which established a community redevelopment agency (the "Miami Beach Redevelopment Agency" or the "Agency") and declared the members of the City Commission as the members of the Agency.

On February 12, 1993, the City adopted Resolution No. 93-20721, which adopted the Agency's City Center/Historic Convention Village Redevelopment and Revitalization Area Plan (the "Redevelopment Plan") for the redevelopment and revitalization of the Redevelopment Area.

The County and the City then approved and entered into the lnterlocal Cooperation Agreement, executed on November 16, 1993 by which the County delegated to the City certain redevelopment powers granted by the Act, including but not limited to the creation of the Redevelopment Area and implementation of the Plan.

The 332-acre City Center/Historic Convention Village Redevelopment and Revitalization Area established in 1993, provided the funding mechanism to foster the development of a new convention hotel development (ultimately the Loews hotel) within proximity of the Miami Beach Convention Center and established the necessary link between the City's many core area civic, cultural and entertainment uses in order to create the fabric of a true urban downtown.

Boundary Map
Commonly known as City Center, the Historic Convention Village Redevelopment and Revitalization Area encompasses the area bounded by 24 Street on the North, West Avenue on the West, 14 Lane on the South, and the Atlantic Ocean on the East.
