The University of Miami is seeking to acquire land from Miami-Dade County in order to build a medical education building for the Miller School of Medicine.

The nonprofit university wants to purchase 36,410 square feet at 1115 N.W. 14th St. from the county. The land is currently utilized by the Public Health Trust as part of the Jackson Memorial Hospital campus. UM would pay the county $6.21 million, a value based on several third-party appraisals.

UM already has a land lease on the site.

The county’s Community Health Committee was scheduled to vote on the deal on Sept. 11. The County Commission would vote on it on Oct. 3, with a two-thirds approval required.
