Final Vote On $5 Billion Funding For Miami International Airport Expansion Set For Next Week

Miami-Dade commissioners are set to vote next week on issuing $5 billion in bonds for renovation and expansion of Miami International Airport.

Commissioners voted unanimously earlier this month to approve the bonds, and a second and final reading is scheduled for March 17.

Around $1 billion will cover projects that are already underway, with the remaining $4 billion to cover projects between 2020 and 2036.

The Central Terminal will see the biggest changes, including demolition and rebuild of Concourses F and G. There will also be a new check in area, and even the curbside and exterior will be rebuilt.

In the North Terminal, four new widebody gates will be added by reconfiguring space. The regional gates at D60 will also be expanded and rebuilt.

The South Terminal will be expanded with several new gates and a new retail area.

The funding and plans will be structured to allow the airport to speed up or slow down the expansion based on any rise or fall in demand.

Here’s a full list of what is being funded at MIA from 2020 through 2036. The total value reaches $4,015,563,000 when including work at other county airports like Opa Locka:

Why would he start in this environment?
If he didn’t start before, he’s smart to hold off now.
Especially with all the brilliant people of this country who want to abolish and/or defund the police. Imagine the fortresses that would need to be built if that were to happen. We’d go back to the Middle Ages and build fortresses with moats with their own defense mechanism.

It means diverting police funding to social welfare programs. More free shit with less criminal arrests. Meanwhile, social workers armed with teddy bears will be responding to assault calls. It’s a win win for the criminal degenerates. Read up on it your damn self. This is what is really wanted.

Hey TNM, it is time to start this Journal again. Life goes on, and Covid-19 is affecting all aspects of the real estate industry. Please start this Journal again who I have enjoyed reading and blogging. You won’t have a Journal left as everyone will forget about you. Life needs to continue and so does real estate journalism. More so now than ever before. New issues with respect to real estate and how this pandemic is affecting real estate, travel etc.
Thanks for your past journalism and web site, and I hope you start up soon.
Stay safe.

A few updates is that Link at Douglas 1 is about to top off and Link at Douglas 2 is getting ready to go vertical. Genting proposed a $700million transit system going to South Beach. Una is doing site work, 830 Brickell is going vertical. Related Group brought a lot in Wynwood for $18 million. A huge mix use project is breaking ground in Aventura. Construction has stopped at Royal Caribbean Head Quarters due to COVID 19. Gateway at Wynwood is going vertical. The Boulevard Apartment building on Federal is going to be topping off soon. Missoni is still going vertical. There is more going on as well.

Anonymous

By the time it’s complete, it will be relatively even more outdated. Say what you want about the current one, but it aged pretty well for a sixty-one-year-old building. If there’s any modern architecture worth saving in Miami, it’s Central Terminal, not some seedy motels to prevent high-rise redevelopment.

Someone is moderating the comments. That means there is life out there. Here is my suggestion: open the blog for posting pics and articles by members and not just the admin. Since someone is out there filtering the comments, they can delete posts they think are not appropriate or not in their interest. At least we can keep this going.

It’s a good start, but LaGuardia is getting a complete overhaul with emphasis on design and efficiency for only 4 billion. Finger terminals are very dated and need to be replaced. I feel like we can do better with 5 billion

LGA is anything but efficient, and the rebuilding was a pet project of corrupt politicians. It doesn’t even fix the main problem that the runways are too short for new aircraft. The competent thing that should have been done was close and sell or lease the land to developers, and expand JFK and Newark as they absorb services.

Like most US airports, pathetically poor designs, no infrastructure, I mean think of it this way, Dulles is the most important international airport in the US capital and it has no mass transit connectivity.
It’s embarrassing…
