43 West Miami-Dade county acres where the Dolphin Expressway and Florida Turnpike intersect in the unincorporated Beacon Lakes area.
County had approved 97-year contract with Terra -David Martin's company for construction of Upland Park, a mixed development to span 43 county acres where the Dolphin Expressway and Florida Turnpike intersect in the unincorporated Beacon Lakes area.
Terra will pay all costs, including $20 million to integrate Dolphin Station into the 3-million-square-foot project, which will feature offices and retail, 1,700 apartments, a hotel, school and science facility.
Upland Park will have 200,000 square feet of retail and create “thousands of jobs.”
