Infill and Redevelopment of a community over 100 years old

Like many eastern communities in south Miami-Dade County, many businesses and families left the community after the devastation of Hurricane Andrew. The charrette called for renewal and revitalization of this historic community. Highlights of the plan include the following:

1.   Homestead Avenue as a mixed-use “main street”
2.   improvement of traffic circulation with pedestrian-friendly streets
3.   amelioration of the industrial district between Eureka and Quail Roost drives
4.   Hibiscus Street as a residential boulevard
5.   building types that fit on small vacant lots
6.   preservation of historical character
7.   infill housing with adjacent mixed-use buildings to link neighborhoods
8.   US 1 corridor a signature boulevard
9.   transformation of public housing into home ownership
