Miami Beach Scraps Plans for OMA-Designed Convention Center Development

20 January, 2014

-By Holly O'Dell



A newly elected Miami Beach City Commission has decided to terminate plans for a $1 billion convention center redevelopment that its predecessors approved in July 2013. Designed by OMA’s New York office, the proposal called for an 800-room hotel and two ballrooms set atop the facility, as well as a large public park.

In a unanimous decision, the commissioners instead will issue a new bid on the convention center renovation only in order to get the project “done fast, on time, on budget,” Mayor Philip Levine told the Miami Herald. Officials also will explore locations for a new hotel as part of a separate but concurrent process.
