the entire district is conceived as an urban campus, an integrated complex of mutually-supportive programs including public amenities, targeted retail opportunities, indoor and outdoor spaces for community and campus gathering, performance and exhibition zones, a range of office environments, and a variety of bespoke residences. at the center of the plan, the miami innovation tower will form a distinctive presence on the skyline. importantly, the development is forecast to bring about significant benefits in terms of financial contributions, employment, and sustainable economic growth. the ‘miami innovation district’ is expected to receive full city approval later in 2015.
