 Types of T5 Zones


Regulating use is an important part 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.

In T5 zones, the emphasis is on limited mixed-use and multi-family residences. T5 creates a small town centre feel and encourages pedestrian activity with options for tourist-driven businesses and small lodging.


Restricted (R) single family, ancillary units, two family,&  multifamily residences
Limited (L)
same as above, and limited commercial, office, lodging, & community centres
Open (O)
additional lodging and entertainment establishments permitted
