Neighborhood Data:

The subject property is located in the Redland area of an unincorporated area of Miami-Dade County, approximately 22 miles southwest of the Central Business District of Miami.

The subject property may be further identified as being located at the southwest corner of S. W. 232nd Street at S. W. 172nd Avenue, approximately 3½ miles west of U. S. Highway 1 and ½ of a mile east of Krome Avenue.

Krome Avenue (S. W. 177th Avenue) is a major north/south traffic artery in the western area of Miami-Dade County. Krome Avenue extends northerly from U.S. Highway 1 in Florida City to U.S. Highway 27 in Northern Miami-Dade County. There are a large number of plant nurseries located along Krome Avenue from S. W. 136th Street to S. W. 280th Street along Krome Avenue. There are some commercial properties, such as service stations, convenience stores, and small shopping centers, located on Krome Avenue at primary east/west traffic arteries.

U.S. Highway 1 is a major north/south artery in Miami-Dade County. U.S. Highway 1 extends northerly from the Monroe County line through Miami-Dade County and on into Broward County. U.S. Highway 1 is a primary north/south commuting artery to the Central

Business District of Miami. The majority of commercial development in South Miami-Dade County is located along U.S. Highway 1.

The plant nursery industry in Miami-Dade County has grown significantly over the past 20 years. There are currently more than 950 nurseries certified by the Florida Department of Agriculture. These nurseries vary in size from one to two-acre operations to very large businesses on 100 to 300-acre sites. There are basically three types of nursery operations in the County: those which produce their crops in the ground (field nurseries), those which produce their crops in containers in the open (container nurseries), and those which produce their crops within structures, such as shade houses or greenhouses.

The trend in the neighborhood today is toward the subdivision of large farming tracts into five-acre estates. The use of the land for row crops (tomatoes, corn, pole beans, etc.) and groves (lime, avocado, and mango) have become economically infeasible. There has been a shift from farmland and groves to plant nurseries over the past five to ten years and now there is a further shift to five-acre estates. As residential land becomes more expensive and scarce in the developed areas of Miami-Dade County, the demand for residential land has increased in the subject neighborhood.

The City of Homestead is located approximately seven miles southwest of the subject property. The City of Homestead and adjacent Florida City are the southernmost incorporated municipalities in Miami-Dade County. Homestead is a center for produce processing and shipping.

In summary, the subject property is located in the rural southwest area of South Miami-Dade County in an area known as the Redlands, between Cutler Ridge and the City of Homestead. Properties in the area have been used primarily for agricultural purposes but there is a strong trend toward single-family residential use on five-acre tracts.

Highest and Best Use:

Possible and Permissible Use

The subject site is divided into two sites. The northerly 25.61 acres of the site has 670.74 feet of frontage on S. W. 232nd Street. The southerly 46.29 acres of the site are acre accessed by an access easement over an abutting site. Therefore, the subject property has adequate access and exposure on a paved road.

The sites are irregular in shape but have adequate functional utility. Telephone and electrical services are available along existing street right-of-ways. Water is provided by a pump and well. Sewer is provided by septic tanks. The site is filled to street grade and does not appear to have any drainage or subsoil deficiencies.

The total subject site is 3,145,679.76 square feet in size, which equates to 72.2 acres. The size of the subject site would allow a large-scale use or a subdivision into several sites.

The physical characteristics of the subject site would not restrict any use of the site.

Permissible or legal uses are those uses that are permitted by zoning or deed restrictions. There are presently no known private deed restrictions of record.

The subject site is zoned for agricultural use which permits farming, groves, plant nurseries and single-family residences on five-acre tracts.

The subject site is designated as Agricultural until the year 2030 under the Miami-Dade County Land Use Plan. There were no indications of any zoning changes in the foreseeable future.

Feasible Use/Maximally Productive Use

The physical characteristics and zoning of the subject property permit only a limited range of potential uses. The possible and permissible uses of the subject site include agricultural uses such as crops, groves, and plant nurseries, as well as single-family residences on five-acre tracts.

Surrounding properties are generally improved with avocado and lime groves, plant nurseries, vegetable fields and single-family residences on five-acre lots.

Considering all the factors, the Highest and Best Use of the subject property, as if vacant, is estimated to be for agricultural use.

Site Data: Dimensions and Shape

The south property line thence extends easterly for 1,342.44 feet. The east property line thence extends northerly for 1,305.77 feet.
