Dade County Bar Association Invites Bids for Renovation of its Headquarters


Miami, Florida, March 23, 2020 –The Dade County Bar Association (“DCBA”) is seeking applicants for a Design/Build project to renovate its downtown headquarters. Located between the Lawson E. Thomas Courthouse Center and the Dade County Courthouse, steps away from the Government Center Metrorail and MetroMover station, and a block away from the Brightline Station, the headquarters is poised to become a gathering place for attorneys practicing in the Eleventh Judicial Circuit and the Southern District of Florida. 

 

The organization plans to lease a portion of the ground floor for retail purposes, and is represented by Aim Higher Real Estate as its listing agent. Members of the DCBA dedicate thousands of hours annually to assisting needy clients with various legal matters pro bono in collaboration with Dade Legal Aid and its Put Something Back program. 


The upper floors will be reallocated to create a co-working space for attorneys, to enable attorneys from outlying neighborhoods will have a safe place to meet with clients, mediate, learn and socialize in the bar’s offices. The organization intends to provide “virtual office” services to attorneys to support their practices. Fellow voluntary bar organizations will be welcome to use the offices’ conference space for their meetings and events. The bar also plans to renovate its roof space, overlooking the historic Dade County Court House, as an outdoor lounge space, ideal for events.


Interested parties should contact Shay Garcia at sgarcia@dadecountybar.org to obtain a copy of the building plans and request for proposals, or to schedule a site visit. 

The Dade County Bar Association is the oldest, and one of the largest, voluntary bar associations in Florida representing Miami-Dade County’s diverse legal community. In addition to providing its members with the education and tools to expand and enrich their legal practice, the DCBA helps citizens of Miami-Dade County find qualified lawyers, receive free legal assistance, and learn about their legal rights and responsibilities. The DCBA is headquartered in downtown Miami, steps from the historic Dade County Courthouse.
