The Miami Beach Commission is moving forward with a new bidding process for the Collins Park garage, a project that gained attention for a failed bid by the late architect Zaha Hadid.
The commission will vote on Wednesday whether to adopt a resolution ranking proposals for the new request for proposals (RFP). The city received seven proposals for the garage after it issued the new RFP in September: Burke Construction Group, Finfrock Construction Inc., Kaufman Lynn Construction, KVC Constructors Inc., Munilla Construction Management, Plaza Construction Group and Stiles Construction.
Of those, the evaluation committee narrowed it down to four, with KVC Constructors as the top bidder, Plaza Construction as No. 2, Finfrock as the third ranked and Kaufman Lynn as the fourth. KVC has worked on five major garages in Miami-Dade, including the Braman Motors Parking Garage, City View Parking Garage, Museum Parking Garage, the Palms Parking Garage and Wynwood Parking Garage, according to city documents.
In Miami Beach, KVC built the Pennsylvania Avenue garage. The second-ranked bidder, Plaza Construction, cited its experience building 3.4 million square feet blocks away from Collins Park. And the third-ranked bidder, Finfrock, is partnering with Arquitectonica, ArquitectonicaGeo and Kimley Horn. They completed the 720-car Venture garage in Aventura.
