On October 02, 2019, the property owner/applicant, KGTC, LLC obtained approval from the Design Review Board (DRB 19-0407) to develop the properties located at 7125, 7135, 7145 Carlyle Avenue, 7100, 7108, 7118, 7134, 7144 Byron Avenue and 527 71 Street., with 270 multifamily residential dwelling units, which are composed of 121 microunits (counted as 61 for density calculations) and 149 regular units. The site has a credit for 47 existing units which are to be demolished, for a net total of 163 residential units for school concurrency calculation purposes.
Upon performing a concurrency review for the proposed development, Miami-Dade County Public Schools (MDCPS) determined that the required pubic school level of service would not be met, pursuant to the following findings:
1) Adequate school facility capacity is not available for three of the senior high school students anticipated to be generated by the proposed residential dwelling units, at the level of service standard within the applicable Concurrency Service Area.
2) The needed school facility capacity for the applicable concurrency service area is not available in any contiguous concurrency service areas within the same geographic area.
3) Available school facility capacity will not be in place or under actual construction within three years after the approval of the development proposal.
Pursuant to the ILA, the property owners are required to mitigate their impacts to senior high schools in order to be able to proceed with the development. In order to mitigate the impact, a proportionate share mitigation agreement will be required. The ILA requires that the School Board, the City, and the applicant approve the agreement.
As required by the ILA, the Parties agree that the Applicant has selected as its Proportionate Share
Mitigation option, the purchase of three (3) banked seats (“Monetary Proportionate Share Mitigation”) from Mitigation Bank #2016-004; and the Parties further agree that the Applicant shall pay the monetary proportionate share mitigation funds.
