The City of Miami Beach has hired Dover, Kohl & Partners to lead a team of consultants that will create a Master Plan for the North Beach District in the City of Miami Beach, Florida. 

The study area will be the North Beach section of the City, which is located north of 63rd Street to the northern city limit at 87th Terrace. Major developments have been built and historic structures have been restored in all parts of the City in the recent past with the exception of the North Beach area, where investment has been lagging.

The City has been studying ways to encourage and promote appropriate, redevelopment activity for the 71st Street Corridor and Ocean Terrace, as well as encourage the preservation and restoration of contributing buildings in the North Shore and Normandy Isles National Register Districts. In addition the consultants, on behalf of the City, will be looking at appropriate ways to develop the City-owned “West Lots”.

The Master Plan will establish recommendations for land development regulations, historic preservation, mobility improvements. The Master Plan will build upon existing plans, previous studies and the results of a "Charrette", a Design in Public workshop, which will be held in February and will solicit input form a broad range of Miami Beach stakeholders, including residents, property and business owners, city staff and local elected officials.
