Petition to stop rezoning request on Brickell Bay Drive underway

Activists for the Brickell Bay Drive area waterfront, between SE 14th and 15th Street, are petitioning the City of Miami to support their planning board’s denial in January of the the rezoning request by the owner of 240 SE 14th Street for a change that would allow a 60-story building to be constructed on the site. Residents say they do not want this large building blocking views they describe as “a stretch of green space along the Bay where people run, exercise, walk their dogs and just hang out with friends and family. We enjoy this area because it is an oasis in the middle of all the high rises that has low-level buildings that allow for broad open views and a sense of air and space…”
