Maybe one of these firms will be hired to do a study on why the signature fountain does not work.

No money to run it. Miami (not metro) is one of the poorest cities in the US.

But the city can afford a new baseball stadium and a new truck tunnel.

After studying the situation, didn’t they decide to come up with some way to bring ULTRA back?

They are still studying that.

That’s why I said “didn’t they decide to (come up with some way) to bring ULTRA back.”

Since when has the DDA ever even mentioned Ultra? They don’t care about it. These are going to be studies on things they’ve already studied decades ago.

So are you saying the DDA does not care about the revenue ULTRA brings to downtown?

That’s exactly what I’m saying. If they did care, don’t you think they would have done a study on economic impact? Or don’t you think they would have at the least put out a statement? Silence speaks volumes.

Coastal caught my attention because in Brickell they are constantly involved in litigation because of quality of developments.

Let me guess, Stantec, Zyscovich, and every other mediocre firm in Gimenez and Russell’s pants.

For Downtown Miami
Bring plenty of parking lots so that streets remain empty and devoid of human touch. Downtown used to thrive when people rode the bus and walked.

And before firms left downtown to move to Doral and Miramar

I think you’re right. Doral is the new County Center of gravity. Go figure.

So people are parking in or at parking lots downtown and not getting out their cars?

During the week, sure. On the weekends and after 7pm on weekdays? Ghost town.
