Last year, I did a brief report on the newly designated MiMo District (On Biscayne Blvd. from 50th to 77th street). Today, the Miami Herald reports on motel owners in the district changing plans for their properties. The article cites the area’s transformation from “seedy strip to hip urban corridor”. I like the idea behind the area’s MiMo designation. It is intended to protect the city’s architectural past while at the same time encouraging people to invest in new ideas and building uses. According to the article, motel owners are planning new office and retail spaces in their establishments. If the area’s revival picks up steam, then it may draw architecturally conscience tourists and visitors.
