Miami-Dade To Vote On Deal For New $50M Dolphins Training Facility

The Miami Dolphins could soon be moving their entire operations to Miami-Dade County.

As part of the deal, the county could vote to increase the annual subsidy granted to the Dolphins for hosting major events at Hard Rock Stadium from $5 million to $5.75 million.

A vote is scheduled for July 24.

The agreement states that the cost to build the new facility would be at least $50 million.

More than 100 jobs, including professional football players, coaches, and support staff, would relocate to Miami-Dade, the agreement states.

According to the Herald, the Dolphins would build the new facility next to Hard Rock Stadium, on the west side. It would be a “cutting edge, first-class facility,” with enhanced fan amenities such as a grassy berm for seating, and an indoor practice field with fan seating.

The city of Miami Gardens may also be offering some subsidies, including paying for security, the Herald wrote.

WHY do we CONTINUE to let PRIVATE ENTERPRISE take ADVANTAGE OF THE PUBLIC. WHY

Chillout… there’s enough vacant land around Hard Rock Stadium to build this establishment plus new housing and hotels which can only enhance and enrich Miami Gardens.

Oh it will definitely enhance and enrich… Stephen Ross, that is.

This will do nothing for Miami-Dade, create jobs my ass. It will relocate a paltry amount of existing jobs from Broward to Dade. And those with the jobs… They aren’t moving anywhere, they’re just changing their commute from currently north to Davie, to now south to Miami Gardens instead. The only difference here is the amount of money Miami will be granting to the Dolphins goes up. That’s the only real change happening!

Its a worthless subsidy because Broward isn’t paying for it and they’re getting alot of the hotel tax revenue.

I believe I read an interesting article on Forbes about the effects of this last week. Very informative.

I agree. None of the staff will relocate to miami if they already don’t live here. The only benefit is the structure itself and the actual staff necessary to maintain the structure. Not sure whey they would give up more subsidy’s.

Would you care to sign this petition for Miami-Dade to give me $1M? That money stimulates the economy when I spend some of it.

Assuming this will be built on the RV / Cash lot located between NW 26th & 27th Avenues, where else do they plan on parking game-day vehicles to make up for lost space?

They already lost the entire Purple, Black South, & Orange Lots between the SE & SW corners of the stadium due to the new Tennis Facility…

Still, it would be a great get for the county if they move south from their current Broward facility @ Nova.

The plan for an intense development zone is a bad idea. The County should not usurp the City. Besides, Miami zoning allows almost anything!

“More than 100 jobs, including professional football players, coaches, and support staff, would relocate to Miami-Dade”

…from Broward? Zero of those people will move from wherever they currently live. This is yet another stadium scam. How can this religion — sports as economic savior — continue another decade?

They don’t have to move, they can just drive to Dade for work, if they want to keep their jobs.

I don’t hate Doral. It’s just fun to bash, like people do on here with Ocala, or everybody with Canada.

You’re reaching to defend yourself, very few people if any who comment on this waste their time bashing Ocala or the entire country of Canada.

Where are you from anyway… Michigan?

I’ll tell you what snot nose, I remember when they started construction on I-95 in Miami. You probably weren’t even swimming around in your daddy’s balls back then.
