Signage on the Miami Herald Building Comes Down

by Isaac Benmergui, Esq on May 26, 2013

MiamiThe signage on the landmark building of The Miami Herald has come down and the wrecking ball will soon follow. The newspaper printed its last run of newspapers at the site some two months ago. The Herald relocated its printing presses to Doral.

What will replace the behemoth structure? Well that depends on who you talk to, the Malaysian owners of the site, Genting Group, or a Florida legislator. Genting wants to build a hotel and casino, but legislators would have to vote on a bill that would allow the casino to be built. The bill, which subsequently died was staunchly opposed by the Seminole Indian Tribe, who operates seven of the state’s eight casinos. The Florida Chamber of Commerce and the Walt Disney company had also come out against the bill as possibly cutting their portion of the state’s tourism dollars.
