 Types of T4 Zones


Regulating use is an important component of any zoning code. Miami 21 Zoning Code prioritizes building form (shape and bulk) over the regulation of use to allow for mixed-use development.


The T4 zone is a new zoning category for Miami that allows for a transition of building massing (size and bulk) between single family and multi-family housing. Additionally, the option of adding some small neighborhood businesses and offices allows for the traditional mom and pop corner store and for small business owners to live near their establishments.
