Gondola Ride Planned At Hard Rock Stadium, Plus New Renderings Of Training Facility

A gondola ride is planned to be built on the south side of Hard Rock Stadium, according to Venuesnow. Completion is planned before the Super Bowl in February 2020.

The Miami Dolphins also released new renderings yesterday of the $100 million training facility planned at the stadium.

The gondola ride is for entertainment purposes and will last 10 minutes, or 1,800 feet. Riders will have a view of the crowd below and the Miami skyline in the distance.

Construction of the gondola is expected to cost $3 million, to be built by Austrian ski lift builder Doppelmayr.

Construction on the training facility began after the Miami Open and is expected to be completed in February 2021.

Rossetti is the architect designing the facility. The same firm also designed the Miami Open retrofit at the stadium.

The gondola ride is only $99 per person so this will be a big hit for the local residents.

$99 for a 1800 foot ride on a gondola across the stadium?.. no thanks. I can buy plenty of ribs, conch, chicken, and beer for that price.

LOL, have you seen stadium “captive audience” prices? You’ll be lucky to get 1 rib and 2 beers for that price.

They might as well cough up some money for the metrorail to be expanded up 27th Ave.

This has nothing to do with public housing as Mr Ross has every right to invest into his own property.

Hes getting money from the county when holds major events, so the county is giving him money while he spends it on stuff that is empty most of the year.

Hate to be that guy..but why do we need so much affordable housing, sofl is a delicate eco system not made to withstand 10,000,000s of ppl. Perhaps we should look at places like the keys that restrict residential units while taking into account the working class.

Point is, we can have affordable housing for those that work in low wage jobs, but do we really need to keep inviting those that are working class from outside of SOFL to move here and put Moreno of a strain on the affordable housing market and social programs, public transit, etc…. that’s a better question.

welp, in other words. Miami business development news is dying down. I’m surprised WeWork leasing another downtown building didn’t make the cut… or maybe it will come Monday!
