Just One Contractor Now Bidding To Build Miami Beach’s Arquitectonica-Designed Convention Center

Will Miami Beach’s Convention Center project be delayed again?

The city is now down to just one contractor bidding on the Arquitectonica-designed project after Hunt Construction Group dropped out last week.

The city had a private partner lined up to build the project by award-winning architect Rem Koolhaas, but scrapped it after Philip Levine was elected mayor. Instead, the city is now attempting to build the cheaper Arquiteconica design with local officials overseeing the project.

Across the bay in Miami, construction on the Miami World Expo Center project, which includes convention space and hotel rooms, is expected to begin imminently.
