79th Street Initiative

79th Street Corridor Community Redevelopment

Project Background

The Metropolitan Center (MC) at Florida International University (FIU), working in collaboration with the FIU Geographic Information Systems - Remote Sensing Center (GIS - RS Center) proposes the formulation of a Neighborhood Implementation Plan for the 79th Street Corridor Neighborhood Initiative, Inc.


The purpose of the survey and economic market analysis is to assess the redevelopment capacity of the 79th Street Corridor and to help guide the subsequent phases of the planning process. The report is delivered to the 79th Street Corridor Initiative led by the Urban League of Greater Miami, Miami-Dade Neighborhood Housing Services and the Dade Employment and Economic Development Corporation (DEEDCO) in partnership with the Center for Neighborhood Technology (CNT). The phase one survey and analysis was conducted by Florida International University’s (FIU) Metropolitan Center and GIS-Remote Sensing Laboratory.
