In December, we broke the news that the Miami Beach Community Church was strongly considering leasing its courtyard to commercial developers. Church leaders called the $100 million offer a "miracle from God." Meanwhile, locals -- and even some church members -- said the church was selling its sanctuary for 30 pieces of silver.
Well, MBCC members eventually approved of the "miracle." And now architects have released their plans for a two-story retail structure where the church courtyard currently sits.
The building will be a modern mix of limestone, glass, and metal. In other words, it will look like all of the other new clothing stores on Lincoln Road.
