In Monday night’s City of Miami Springs Council Meeting, it was revealed that the current property owners of the old Circle Theater property are proposing adding a three story building that includes:

  1. First floor retail
  2. Second and third floor residential with up to 52 residential units
  3. A parking garage

The proposal requires the city to reduce the minimum apartment size from 900 square feet to 700 square feet with an 800 square feet minimum unit average.

That would be adding an approximate 41,600 sq ft of residential space to downtown Miami Springs.

Here are some of the comments we received on social media regarding decreasing the minimum apartment size requirements:

What do you think?  Do you like the idea of adding 52 apartment homes to the old Circle Theater?
