Latest Update: 5th Street & Alton Development Project

Dear Friends and Neighbors:

This week’s Miami SunPost covers the topic of the proposed 50-story tower at the corner of 5th Street and Alton Road. I commend the Miami SunPost on providing the public with objective and unbiased news coverage concerning the proposed development.

Last week, the City Attorney issued a legal opinion stating that under the City’s Charter a property owner may not increase the size or density of a proposed development by transferring or shifting development rights from one property to another without approval by a public vote.

We will continue to take a holistic view of Alton Road by promoting responsible development that does not overburden our current infrastructure.
