SoLē Mia hosted an open house event to officially acknowledge the new Local Preference Office spearheaded by Garth Solutions, a local management-consulting firm. Attended by North Miami city officials, SoLē Mia developers, business owners, and staff from the local schools working with the LPO, the event served as a lead up to the public open house being held in the fall.
The LPO offers free job training and scholarship opportunities to North Miami residents in order to help fill at least 10 percent of the estimated 14,000 short- and long-term jobs with local residents. As of September, 46 students were awarded scholarships, and 29 percent of the total workforce has been filled with North Miami residents – exceeding the mandated requirement of 10 percent by nearly three times.
As the largest project in the City of North Miami’s history, SoLē Mia is Turnberry Associates and LeFrak’s latest development and is poised to become South Florida’s next iconic neighborhood. The premier, 184-acre master-planned community will feature 1.4 million square feet of retail space, upscale dining and entertainment, two swimmable 10-acre Crystal Lagoons, and 4,390 residences.
