This week, U.S. Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, R-Fla., weighed in on the groundbreaking ceremony for the future site of the new military housing complex supporting U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) service members and their families.

“I am thrilled to have been a part of making this project a reality for our brave men and women in the Armed Forces and their families. This project will be the first military housing of its kind in South Florida since Hurricane Andrew devastated the military housing at Homestead Air Force Base more than three decades ago. I am proud to have worked with both the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Pentagon to get this done. I look forward to the completion of this project, which will address long-standing housing challenges and enhance the readiness and quality of life for our service members and their families,” Diaz-Balart said.

This military housing complex will be the first military housing of its kind in South Florida since the devastation caused by Hurricane Andrew resulted in the closure of military housing at Homestead Air Force Base more than three decades ago.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has been working closely with the Army since 2020 to transfer up to 51.7 acres of FAA land to the Army for the much-needed housing construction project.
