An office building could rise in the parking lot of a shopping center in the Miami Health District.
The city’s Urban Development Review Board on Sept. 14 will consider the application for the 2.14-acre site at 1000 and 1050 N.W. 14th St., on the north side of the Dolphin Expressway/State Road 836.
The property currently has Civica Center, a three-story shopping plaza of 74,463 square feet, plus a 4,768-square-foot bank branch. Both of those buildings would remain while the office building is developed, although their parking would be relocated to the office building’s new parking garage.
TCD 212 Civica FL Property LLC and TCD 1000 NW 14th Street LLC, both affiliate of Boston-based Taurus Investment Holdings and Boston-based Congress Group, bought the properties for a combined $30.5 million in 2020.
The new building would total 651,766 square feet in 21 stories, with 367,012 square feet of office space and 524 parking spaces. Starting on the eighth floor, the office floor plans would range from 24,000 to 29,000 square feet.
Miami-based attorney Melissa Tapanes Llahues, who represents the developer in the application, couldn’t be reached for comment. The project was designed by Miami-based Cube 3.
Miami has attracted more companies as wealthy people move to the area. The Health District is home to many of South Florida’s largest health care providers, such as Jackson Health System and University of Miami Health System, so this office could be an ideal location for medical providers as well.
