Southplace City Center 760x320

Real estate developers are planning to build a “city within a city” at the Southland Mall site in Cutler Bay.

Developer Electra America, its U.S. affiliate American Landmark, and BH Group this week announced preliminary plans to redevelop the 80-acre site 20 miles south of Miami.

The site was acquired in May for more than $100 million.

Plans for the billion-dollar project, to be called Southplace City Center, include revamping the mall and adding nearly 4,400 apartments, a grocery store, a 150-room hotel, medical office space, an amphitheater and walk/bike paths at the site.

The proposal has been submitted to the town. The developers said their plans meet code and that they won’t seek any special approvals.

The developers plan to break ground next year. Apartments could be ready in early 2025, with rents starting at $2,500.

Orlando Health unveiled plans to reimagine its current Seminole County campus as a healthcare hub in downtown Longwood, anchored by a new free-standing emergency department (FSED).

Plans call for the FSED to be built and ready to serve the community in the summer of 2024, concurrent with the closure of Orlando Health South Seminole Hospital and the opening of the new Orlando Health Lake Mary Hospital.

Leaders at Orlando Health and officials with the City of Longwood are working together to create a destination for residents that complements the redesigned Reiter Park. The current campus is envisioned to include a 15-acre town center for the City of Longwood comprising a high-quality mix of multi-family residential, retail and office uses.

“We’re very proud of our nearly 40-year history here in Longwood as a hospital caring for so many people in our community and as one of the largest employers in the area,” says Shawn Molsberger, senior vice president of Orlando Health’s northeast region and president of Orlando Health South Seminole Hospital. “Working closely with the city, we’re making an investment into our community that allows us to continue providing a high level of care while bringing in new amenities that will further enhance the quality of life for Longwood residents.”

Most of the Longwood campus will be redeveloped, leaving two existing medical office buildings to continue offering important services such as cardiology, pulmonology, rehabilitation, general surgery, infectious disease, and urology. Plans are also underway to relocate behavioral health services at South Seminole Hospital to a new Central Florida location, where Orlando Health will develop a new dedicated facility to allow for greater access to clinical mental health services. An announcement on the new behavioral health project is expected soon. Construction on the new Longwood FSED is expected to begin in early 2023.

assisted living facility at 195 w 27th st in hialeah 760x320

An assisted living facility in Hialeah could be replaced with a larger, more modern assisted living facility.

The City Council on Sept. 13 will consider a rezoning application for 0.77 acres covering 141 W. 27th St., plus 130-160 W. 28th St. The five small apartment buildings there are owned by 140 LLC, which is owned by Abraham Shaulson, the head of Miami-based assisted living facility operator Millennium Management.

The 52,912-square-foot assisted living facility at 195 W. 27th St. is directly west of the properties with the pending rezoning and is also owned by an affiliate of Millennium Management. It was built in 1950.

Under the application, the neighboring five lots would be rezoned from “medium density residential” to “major institutions.” That would mean Millenium Management would control 2.4 acres zoned for assisted living.

um healthcare center 760x320

The University of Miami broke ground on a 363,000-square-foot outpatient health care facility at the SoLé Mia project in North Miami.

The nonprofit university’s UHealth first announced plans to build a medical center within the 184-acre development in 2019, but the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic delayed the project. Now, UHealth is moving forward with construction of the 7-story facility, which is slated to open in 2025.

This will be the largest ambulatory health care facility for UHealth, even larger than the Lennar Foundation Medical Center on its Coral Gables campus.

Situated on 10 acres, UHealth SoLé Mia will have 110 exam rooms, 10 operating rooms, 33 cancer treatment rooms, a reflection garden, and a bridge to a neighboring hotel. The site has space for an additional 100,000 square feet for future expansion.

Specialists from UM’s Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, Desai Sethi Urology Institute and other specialty programs will work out of the new facility. It will offer outpatient surgeries, those where patients can be operated on and released within a day.

This comes amid a wave of expansion for UM’s health care programs. It broke ground on a $250 million cancer center expansion in June. It also plans a major outpatient care facility in Downtown Doral.
