New AU CampusAtlantis University is proud to grow and develop into one of the most authentic and innovative universities in south Florida.
This past November the university finished a series of negotiations with prestigious developers from the eastern coast of the United States to build out the university’s new campus. Located just two minutes away from downtown Miami, the new campus is in the heart of the Miami Health District, with the Jackson Hospital and University of Miami Health System within walking distance of the main campus building.
The university also retained the services STANTEC, which is one of the most renowned architect firms in the world. STANTEC has the task to design and prepare Atlantis University’s layout by following standards from creative office spaces such as Google, Facebook and Citrix. The expected opening date will be for December of 2016.
Renovation of the Health DistrictJackson Health System’s future will rise from a cloud of construction dust over the coming decade, according to an ambitious $1.4 billion building plan unveiled Wednesday by trustees for Miami-Dade County’s public hospital network. The plan details how Jackson’s leaders will spend $830 million in public financing approved by voters last fall, and an additional $550 million generated by the public hospital network and other sources.
The more than 200 proposed projects, including new construction and infrastructure improvements, would transform Jackson’s main campus in Miami while broadening the hospital system’s geographic reach with new urgent care centers and nearly $150 million in improvements to satellite hospitals in North Miami Beach and South Miami-Dade.
The River Landing DevelopmentRiver landing shops and residences will offer 2 million square feet of retail and residences on 8.14 acres along the Historic Miami river in the heart of Miami’s Health District. Located at 1400 NW North River Drive, the mixed-use development is within walking distance of Miami’s Civic Center area, home to the second largest health district in the United States, and the judicial hub of Miami Dade County’s court system. River Landing is designed to transform one of South Florida’s most densely populated employment centers into a thriving full-service community that will feature a myriad of retail, dining and entertainment choices. The national trend of urban centers driving retailers growth is on full display at River Landing.
David Beckham’s soccer stadiumDavid Beckham on Friday dropped his pursuit of a stadium next to Marlins Park in favor of a nine-acre site on the western edge of Overtown, revealing preliminary land deals with private owners and county officials to secure a Miami home for Major League Soccer. The announcement marked the first time in two years that Beckham and his investors said they actually have real estate under contract as one of the world’s most famous athletes tries to bring a privately financed stadium to Miami. The latest deal calls for Beckham’s group to own all the real estate, dropping its effort to elude property taxes by having a government serve as the stadium’s landlord.
“I believe this is a much better deal for the taxpayer,” Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez said during a news conference announcing his talks to sell the Beckham group a three-acre county service yard as part of the stadium site.
