A luxury auto track and commercial development planned near Miami Gardens is scheduled to begin construction in November after a delay in early phases pushed the completion date back almost two years.
Drivers Club Miami, a more than $100 million project being developed by 13 Pista LLC, would include a two-mile private driving track, club, hotel, retail, dining and cultural attractions upon completion by early 2029. The project is based at a 160-acre county-owned site at 20000 NW 47th Ave. that previously housed the Landmark Learning Center.
At the moment, 13 Pista is going through the design and the permitting process, Attorney Eric Singer of Bilzen Sumberg, the firm representing 13 Pista, an affiliate of South American developer Carlos de Narváez, confirmed to Miami Today.
As the newspaper reported last year, the development ran behind schedule since three non-profit agencies located on the southern part of the Landmark site depend on the utilities that run north to south on the property.
13 Pista initially planned that construction could begin at the northern part, without having to move the agencies first. But as water and electricity would have been cut off to the agencies, the company and the county amended the lease last year to include a new schedule with a relocation of the non-profits and the construction of a government center before the auto track development, as part of “phase zero,” Mr. Singer explained.
