Miami Parking Authority Falsified Emails To Keep Moishe Mana From Challenging Bid

The Miami Parking Authority fabricated emails to make it appear that they followed proper procedure for bidding at 240 N. Miami Ave, according to a Miami city attorney.

Mana’s attorneys had said in a lawsuit that the MPA never provided proper notification of a decision to award the property to a rival. While the MPA had submitted emails as evidence of notification, a forensic examination has now revealed the purported sent dates to be false, according to a city of Miami attorney.

MPA planning and development director Rolando Tapanes has resigned in the wake of the revelation, according to the Herald. MPA CEO Art Noriega, rumored to be a “Tampa homeboy” of the winning bidder, remains in his position.

the MPA is the biggest scam in town. they’ve gotta go. having said that, I don’t want Moishe to win the bid because he won’t build. Here we are, years after he purchased all of his downtown property and he has not done ONE SINGLE THING to improve the neighborhoood. No buildout, no re-tenanting, and certainly no ground up construction. All talk. I also pledge $1,000,000 to charity if Trump shows his tax returns. Empty talk. All of it. Talk talk talk.

I love comments like this. One person says there’s too much building, the other is upset he isn’t building. Learn how development works before passing judgement.

I know more about development than you could ever dream of…. trust me. Your English obviously isn’t very good because you don’t interpret my comment correctly. I am very pro development. I don’t judge. I just observe. Moishe claims to be a developer and a hero for offering $1M for Trump tax returns. Meanwhile, over the next two years I suspect he will neither develop one single ground-up construction project nor pay $1M to charity for Trump tax returns. Talk.

Scummy developers.

Obvious to anyone else that Tapanes is the fall guy? Noriega is the orchestrator and needs to go.

Art Noreaga is a con artist. The MPA pulled the same fraudulent nonsense in the Miami Design District by raising fees on parking 4 fold. Art should be in jail.
