Meeting Tonight In Overtown To Discuss $750M Worldcenter Marriott

Commissioner Keon Hardemon will hold a town hall in Overtown tonight to discuss a tax rebate deal for the 1,800-room Marriott Expo Center on the former Miami Arena site.

The rebates have been previously reported to be worth $75 million in present day value, to be credited over 20 years.

Among the demands listed by Hardemon is a 5 percent equity stake in the $750 million project, which would seem likely to kill the deal.
