Miami Beach’s Historic Move

Screen Shot 2012-12-20 at 11.24.43 AM

The Miami Herald editorial department noted the historic significance of  the project to overhaul the  55-year-old Miami Beach Convention Center and commented the Miami Beach City Commission for the selection of two teams of developers, architects and investors to proceed with the ambitious plan.

 In the end, Miami Beach commissioners chose wisely in selecting the two teams charged with creating design proposals.

One team includes Portman-CMC, the developer who built the 14-block Peachtree Center in Atlanta, and its partners, Miami condo developer Ugo Colombo, Cirque du Soleil and the Bal Harbour Shops.

The other team includes South Beach ACE, which built Disney World’s Swan and Dolphin hotels’ resort complex; local developer Robert Wennet, who was instrumental in revitalizing Miracle Mile in Coral Gables; and renowned architect Rem Koolhas. These are heavy hitters with solid credentials to bring the convention center into the 21st Century.
