Port Miami Development Alternative

July 25, 2012

Similar to the recently awarded CornellNYC Tech University campus on Roosevelt Island in New York City (a project spearheaded by the NYC Economic Development Corporation), Miami has the opportunity to attract a collaboration of world-class universities to create a new university campus with a focus on science and technology to serve as a solid base to our emerging technology and biotech industries.

Currently the Port Miami 2035 Master Plan calls for retail, commercial and/or residential development on the underutilized SW corner of Port Miami.  Rather than status quo, lets provide a keystone to our community on what is a county owned, one of a kind parcel of land.  As an attractor the county can provide land and/or infrastructure incentives to the winning University.  Miami, hub of the Americas, with a world class urban site, would undoubtedly be an attractive location for such a project.  Let’s have Miami Dade County continue to be of public service, investing in our citizens and economy rather than condos.
