The Venetian Causeway Homeowners Alliance has alerted its list serve members of public hearing tonight at the Adrienne Arsht Center. Under discussion: A proposed parking garage across from the Arsht Center for the Performing Arts that would feature two 22-story electronic advertising signs — visible for across the causeway. The towers would sit on top of the eight-story garage; together, the structures would be 30 stories.
Miamiherald.com has a takeout on the proposal today, as well as renderings of what it might look like. The Arsht Center doesn’t have its own parking lot, which would be the public benefit of the project. But the towers, even in renderings prepared by developer Mark Siffin, are huge. They would be built on surface parking lots currently owned by The Herald’s parent, The McClatchy Co. The land has been under contract for sale for several years, but has not closed.
The alert to causeway homeowners says:
Very important meeting for anyone living in the City of Miami!
A major developer will be making a presentation on a proposed project that could change the face of the community near the Arsht Performing Arts Center.
The public hearing starts at 6 p.m. Wednesday in the Ziff Ballet and Opera House at the Arsht, in the Next Generation Green Room.
