A new face for the South Beach Convention Center!

05 Apr

Capture2Every time I pass by the convention center I say to myself that the place really needs some remodelling. That is why I was thrilled last summer when I learnt that voters approved to pay for work on the Miami Beach Convention Center. Indeed, Miami Beach voters gave the City Commission the authority to increase resort tax to finance major improvements to the Miami Beach Convention Center. The funds will be used to expand, enlarge, renovate and improve not only the Convention Center but also the Fillmore Theater, the city hall and a hotel.

Right now two Companies are competing for the job: Portman CMC and South Beach ACE.
On June 5th each firm will present a master plan at the City Commission meeting. After that the Commission will choose the plan they preferred.

The only information I was able to dig up is that team Portman is planning on featuring the Convention Center with a public courtyard. In any case I am sure that both offers will be great and I am happy to see that the City understood how important the Convention Center is. Indeed, don’t forget that after the airport and the seaport the Convention Center is considered as the third largest economic engine of the City!
