Miami School To Allow Teachers Work And Live Under One Roof

Under construction in Miami’s Brickell neighbourhood is a new school site and workforce housing that Miami-Dade County Public Schools hopes will be a model for all future redevelopment projects.

According to the chief facilities, design and construction officer for Miami-Dade County Public Schools Raul Perez, the aim of the multi-million dollar school expansion and housing for educators project is to tackle three issues at the same time: a teacher shortage, the need for more school seats and access to workforce housing.

Perez said, what you are looking at here is a very unique collaboration between Miami-Dade County, public housing and community development, and the school district,”

Miami-Dade Commissioner Eileen Higgins, said the communities’collaborationwith the Public Schools is recognized nationally as an innovative approach to addressing multiple community needs comprehensively.

This project uses one piece of County-owned land to address, insufficient school seats, inadequate teacher housing, unaffordable housing, and more workforce housing.

It’s even better because the hundreds of new housing units are located within walking distance to Metrorail and Metromover, saving families car expenses.

According to Higgins, the tower will have 465 units, 45% of which will be affordable housing or workforce-priced units.
