Miami-Dade Minute – New Courthouse Groundbreaking


This is your Miami-Dade Minute… We are beginning the construction of a new courthouse, a new era here. The courthouse that we had has served us well for 90 years, but it was actually built for a different Miami-Dade County, a different time and also much smaller Miami-Dade. We are dedicating what will be a stunning, functional, high-tech courthouse for modern times fully accessible to all who seek justice. Thank you all for fighting so hard to make sure that it stays on this
beautiful site in historic Flagler Street 30 years ago they told the County
that this building, “Cielito Lindo” had to be replaced, and we’ve been
putting a band-aid, working hard to keep it healthy and secure.This is a great
building for 1930, but it’s not a great building for 2020. This historic building
has served over the years as a county jail, the seat of county government, and
City Hall. When the time is right, the County will position the Dade County
Courthouse for sale in a manner that protects the building’s historical,
cultural, and architectural significance. The public-private partnership was a
good vehicle for it. It’s the most cost- effective way to do it. We will maintain
it for future generations to come. We are so excited! Four years from now, we cannot wait to move in!
