MR. EDMUND N. ANSIN: VISIONARY EXTRAORDINAIRE, PAVING THE WAY FOR THE FUTURE.


Incorporated in 1955, the City of Miramar celebrates 64 years of growth and prosperity this year. However, it was in the 1980s, when Mr. Edmund N. Ansin recognized the potential market for a commerce park at the Miami-Dade/Broward county line, that the tone for Miramar’s growth was set. Working with the city, Mr. Ansin rezoned property for what would later become The Miramar Park of Commerce, containing over five million square feet of office and industrial space. A visionary leader, Mr. Ansin continued  to grow the city; working closely with Mr. James “Jim” Goggins and attorney Alan Milledge to create two Developments of Regional Impact (DRI’s) and also playing an instrumental role in getting the Florida Turnpike Interchange at Red Road built, subsequently transforming the landscape of southwest Broward.

Mr. Ansin recognized Miramar’s ability to attract businesses because of its strategic location just 20 minutes away from  the international airports and seaports of Miami-Dade and Broward Counties, and his legacy continues to be ever-present throughout the city with the Ansin Sports Complex and the Ansin Family Art Gallery— an homage to his family.
