County Commission Approved an Agreement for Playhouse Parking Garage

On October 2, 2018, the Board of County Commissioners approved a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the County and the Miami Parking Authority (MPA). This is an important next step in realizing the plan for the Coconut Grove Playhouse project.

The MOU outlines a number of essential project developments to be funded by MPA:
• A new parking garage structure on the site of the current surface parking lot with approximately 300 spaces;
• Approximately 33,500 square feet of office space lining both the front and rear sides of the garage to provide a friendly face on both Main Highway and towards the residential neighborhood to the west;
• A food and beverage establishment of approximately 4,700 square feet; and
• Approximately 13,750 square feet of space in the restored historic front building (thereby restoring the original 1927 uses of retail on the ground floor and offices at the second and third levels).

The provisions outlined in the MOU are consistent with the Lease between the State and the County and Florida International University and with the Master Plan developed for the site. MPA continues to be a strong partner in the Playhouse project, committed to the objectives of respecting the historic character of the property and returning great theater to Coconut Grove.
