Summer 2000 – 1900 Brickell before Planning and Zoning Board

The matter of 1900 Brickell Avenue will again go before the Planning and Zoning Board and then the City of Miami Commission. BHA is challenging the signage announcing a spa at the location. The use of this property which was one of the last remaining single-family homes on Brickell Avenue is part of the ongoing effort to safeguard the residential ambiance of Brickell Avenue and prevent commercial encroachment in the neighborhood. BHA’s position is that both the sign and the new use of the facility are in violation of the original covenants of the agreement granting zoning variances to the plastic surgeon several years ago.

Recently a Brickell resident of 10 years responded to BHA’s Website survey attributing the “plastic surgeon office eyesore” as one of the top three examples of how “the quality of life in the neighborhood has gotten worse” in the time he has lived here.
