The SAH Heritage Conservation Committee has written a letter opposing the destruction of the South Shore Community Center by the City of Miami Beach, Florida. The South Shore Community Center, designed by architect Morris Lapidus in 1969, is nationally significant for its role in the redevelopment of the City of Miami, and as an example of the City’s public commitment to elderly individuals. Read the letter
