    Default New Massive Downtown Hotel & Convention Center

    Latest updates from the old Miami World Center project..

    500,000sq ft convention center, 1800 room hotel, 2600 car parking garage...no public money, direct connect to the new Florida East Coast Rail system which is the Orlando Miami Train as well as Bridge to the Metro Rail..

    This should make Matt hate the area even more! :-)

    Wow. I WILL say, though, a convention center is a much better thing to have than a casino. We aren't going to become some kind of gambling destination, but if it can draw more conventions to town that's a good thing. Still,, I hate highrises and the traffic they bring. A park, agian, would be my ideal pick. Maybe they'll discover an important archaeological site.

    More convention business would be good. .... And good to hear they don't plan to use (abuse) public funds to do it. -- Glenn

    That's fantastic news for Miami! That kind of meeting space is hard to find outside of places like Vegas, Chicago, and Orlando. It should draw some really massive conventions that will pump millions into the local ecomony.
