Miami-Dade county approved a lease of the land with the company in 2018.

Embassair is leasing 10.2 acres at Opa-Locka airport for the new terminal, with the first year payment starting at $115,000.

To be fair, all the modern architecture built in France these days is horrendous.

We need more articles about Opa-Locka Aiport (OPF)! There’s been lots of talks there for future projects. Bombardier is already building their new facility.

What do you expect when their political party is now in power at the Federal and local level, ironically taking advantage of the policies at the State level after screwing up their own States in the Northeast and West Coast?

NJ had eight years of GOP governance under Chris Christie and that Northeastern state didn’t really fare better for it. Stop painting everyone with such broad strokes.

I’m guessing that Republicans voted for Donald Trump because he’s a man of the poor and working class right?

Whatever is proposed to replace the MIA Central Terminal, probably some more Arqueeftectonica trash, wouldn’t even hold a candle or even flint to a mini TWA terminal for a regional airport waiting room. SAD!
