Our Neighborhoods Oak Square

Featured By Alexandra Herrera, Reporter Friday, December 16, 2022

The Oak Square business park on the east side of Miami Lakes takes up an entire block along the north side of Miami Lakes Drive and Northwest 151 Street. 

A variety of businesses are inside five buildings on the campus, and industries include aviation, banking, health care and automotive. 

Oak Square is bordered by Northwest 57 Court to the East and Northwest 59 Court to the West. 

The office park was built by The Graham Companies in 1978 and currently has 10 tenants. 

The businesses include Air Quality Aviation; ITM: Innovative Transfusion Medicine; First Horizon Bank; Sabadell United Bank; Conviva Care Center; Florida Fragrances International; Banco Sabadell; Iberiabank; EE&G Restoration and GSE Custom Cars and Cycles. 

Many of the companies have large spaces of more than 10,000 square feet. 

One of those business is Air Quality Aviation, which has been on the east side of Miami Lakes for 20 years. 

“We’re an aircraft repair shop approved by the [Federal Aviation Administration],” Jainlin Bulding of the purchasing department said. 

 The company works on small components, but also landing gear for larger aircraft, Bulding says. 

“We prioritize military over commercial, but we do do commercial,” Bulding said. “We’re relatively close to Miami International Airport and [Miami] Opa-Locka [Executive] Airport,” where Bulding said the company has several contracts. 

He said that the company is also close to vendors. 

“We can easily resource anything we [need] or parts needed,” Bulding said. 

There’s also the ease of access near the major roadways and Bulding says for some employees who live south of town, they only have a 45-minute commute.   

While the company does work for local clients, Bulding says Air Quality Aviation also fills national and international contracts. 

“We even have military contracts with people in Colombia,” Bulding said.
