The building for what used to be the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice has been demolished recently.
The City of Miami purchased the land and gave the deed to Swire Properties. Swire will get $1.6 million from the city to make improvements to the area. The land is to enhance traffic flow on South Miami Ave and 6th Street for pedestrians and vehicles.
The house at 622 South Miami Ave was recently torn down and the Frame Store has moved out of the building. It won't be too much longer until The River Oyster Bar and Bonding are gone and that whole strip comes down.
