As a response to Miami’s rapid growth, the City’s Planning Department commissioned DPZ to completely overhaul the zoning code and create a plan for the next century of development.
Miami 21 results of a collaborative effort that represents a significant milestone for the City. Miami 21 represents the “Miami of the 21st Century” and entails a holistic approach to land use and urban planning. It will provide a clear vision for the City that will be supported by specific guidelines and regulations so that future generations will reap the benefits of well-balanced neighborhoods and rich quality of life.
The cornerstone of the Miami 21 project is the transformation of Miami’s existing land-use-based zoning code into a form-based code. Upon completion, the new code will offer a more efficient, predictable, and comprehensive approach to urban development.
