Adrian Builders has proposed a second office building on Miller Road in the Sunset neighborhood of Miami-Dade County.
Adrian Builders at Miller Road II, managed by Alvaro L. Adrian of the Miami-based developer, filed a pre-application with county officials for the 1.07-acre site at 9950 Miller Road. The developer purchased the plant nursery for $2.23 million in June.
The land is located halfway between Florida’s Turnpike and the Don Shula Expressway.
It wants to change the district boundary from “estate use suburban” to “limited business district.”
The site plan calls for a 28,793-square-foot office building with 105 parking spaces, with 20% of them ready for electric vehicle charging. The parking spaces would be on a surface lot and on the ground floor of the building, with all the office space on the second and third level.
The site plan labels this a medical office.
Miami-based attorney Nicholas Rodriguez, who represents the developer in the application, couldn’t be reached for comment. Cabrera Ramos Architects in Doral designed the project.
“Adding offices in this area provides opportunities for employment in close proximity to adjacent residential uses, which serves to reduce traffic on adjacent roadways and improve quality of life of residents,” the developer stated in the application.
The neighboring 1-acre site at 9920 Miller Road is owned by Adrian Builders at Miller Road, which obtained approval earlier this year to build 27,569 square feet of office space. Construction has yet to begin.
Office rents have reached record highs in Miami-Dade County this year as more companies have relocated here from other states, especially in the financial and technology industries. However, most of that leasing activity has been in the urban core, such as Brickell and Miami Beach, and not in the western suburbs. However, there is a large population in the suburbs that needs medical services close by.
