Worldcenter To Begin Construction In April Or May; Mekka Nightclub Will Be Demolished Soon

Get ready for a lot of demolition in Park West over the next few weeks as Worldcenter prepares to begin construction.

One building that will soon be gone is currently housing Mekka Nightclub, at 950 NE Second Ave. The club will host a final farewell party on Sunday, March 29.

Michael Slyder, the owner of the club, told Miami New Times that Miami World Center (his landlord) will begin construction in ‘April or May.’ Mekka’s building, along with many others, will be demolished.

The club sits in the site where The Mall at Miami Worldcenter will be built. It is being developed by The Forbes Company and Taubman.

Worldcenter recently received good news when a judge denied a lawsuit by the owners of Grand Central Park and Grand Central lounge opposing street closures for Worldcenter (more on this coming soon.)
