TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING COUNTY MAYOR OR MAYOR’S DESIGNEE TO FINALIZE NEGOTIATIONS REGARDING PARCELS 1B AND 1C OF AIRPORT CITY, SUBJECT TO SUBSEQUENT BOARD CONSIDERATION AND APPROVAL

BODY


WHEREAS, the Board of County Commissioners, via Resolution R-831-08, approved a process by which the Miami-Dade Aviation Department (MDAD) would select a developer to develop the project known as Airport City at Miami International Airport; and
WHEREAS, a developer was selected in an open and transparent process to develop Airport City; and
WHEREAS, Airport City is now composed of three parcels, commonly known as 1A, 1B, and 1C; and
WHEREAS, the County no longer believes that it is in the best interest of the County to develop the parcel known as 1A; and
WHEREAS, MDAD has not identified any impediments to development of parcels 1B and 1C and has recommended that such parcels be developed; and
WHEREAS, a developer was selected in an open and transparent process to develop Parcels 1B and 1C; and
WHEREAS, MDAD has negotiated leases with Parcel 1B Development, LLC, the developer for Parcel IB, and with Parcel 1C Development, LLC, the developer for Parcel 1C, which will result in construction of a luxury hotel and a service plaza, and the Federal Aviation Administration has approved these leases; and
WHEREAS, development of Parcels 1B and 1C will generate thousands of construction and other jobs, will provide additional revenue to Miami International Airport, and will provide additional amenities for the traveling public; and
WHEREAS, re-procuring a developer for these parcels, and re-negotiating leases a new developer, will likely take years, and will result in the loss of jobs and revenue, and deprive passengers of needed amenities during such reprocurement period,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that:
Section 1. The foregoing recitals are incorporated in this resolution and are approved.
Section 2. This Board directs the County Mayor or Mayor’s designee to finalize negotiations with the developers for Parcel 1B and Parcel 1C and present all necessary leases and agreements to the Board for its consideration and approval within ninety (90) days from the effective date of this resolution; provided, however, if the County Mayor or Mayor’s designee is unable to successfully negotiate the terms of such agreement within the requisite time period, a report detailing the status of the negotiations and the anticipated date on which the agreements will be available for the Board’s consideration shall be presented to this Board instead.
