Historian: Booming Downtown Miami Is In The Midst Of A ‘Monster Transformation’

Downtown Miami’s transformation has caught the attention of USA Today (Beyond South Beach: Miami’s downtown booms).

The article notes how downtown has gone from boom to bust to boom again, with the population more than doubling in recent years. Local historian Paul George is quoted as saying that downtown is in the middle of a ‘complete turnaround,’ and that we are witnessing a ‘monster transformation.’

The reporter also notes that the number of downtown restaurants has doubled, along with new museums, hotels, retail centers and other projects that have recently opened or are under construction.
