Keeping development sane
Did you see this new project planned for the Buena Vista area? It's called a "mixed-use, pocket village," it's low rise and very pleasant for the area.
These renderings by BVM development, the developer of the project, shows a real respect for the neighborhood.
The first part of the development involves renovating a 4,000 square foot building, as shown. It isn't a plan to knock down the building and then build up as high as re-zoning and up-zoning can buy.
They are embracing the character of the neighborhood.
Something like this will bring new life into Village West, it will work with the neighbors on either side of it and it will bring people to the area to experience the new businesses and stores.
This will be a big test for our new commissioner, Ken Russell, will he sell out the office like others have? Or will he vote against zoning changes and up-zoning in order to keep the neighborhood quaint and livable and Coconut Grove - not turning into Brickell South.
