They wanna keep the Mom & Pop feel

The City of Miami Planning and Zoning Department received an appeal yesterday to the "class II special permit" approved with conditions on August 12, for the development of a parcel located at 3055 North Miami Avenue.  This development is proposed to contain a Walmart store fronting both North Miami Avenue and NE 31 Street, designed by Gensler Architecture and also a liner retail building fronting Midtown Boulevard, designed by Zyscovich Architects as well as other supporting improvements, as appropriate.

Neighbors are upset because they don't want a big box store to destroy the Mom & Pop feel of their neighborhood, sound familiar? We went through all this years ago with Home Depot.


The appeal documents along with the $500 appeal fee have been received and will be processed, leading to a public hearing which is expected to take place in the month of October before the Planning, Zoning and Appeals Board of the City of Miami.

How does midtown have a mom-pop feel? everything is big box stores or retail that was just built in the last 6 years there. before it was a train yard or warehouses.

I agree. Mom and pop feel? Really? The 3 parcels to the north of that address are shopping centers and parking garages. They just don't want a WalMart.
