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 "RDA") and declared the members of the City Commission as the members of the RDA.

 

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

 

On November 16, 1993, the County and City executed an lnterlocal Cooperation Agreement, 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 Redevelopment 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 two convention-quality hotel developments, both of which were the result of public private partnerships with the RDA (the 800-room Loews Miami Beach Hotel and the 425-room Royal Palm Crowne Plaza Hotel, the latter of which had the distinction of being the first African American-owned hotel in the Unites States.) Among other objectives, the RDA was created, pursuant to the Redevelopment Plan, to establish the necessary linkages between the Miami Beach Convention Center, area hotels, cultural amenities, and nearby entertainment, residential, and business uses, to foster and strengthen the fabric of a true urban downtown.

 

Geographic Boundary and Map

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