Progress Marches on in Downtown Miami
These days, it seems as though changes in Downtown Miami are happening overnight. In some cases, they do. While out walking my dogs tonight, I noticed two significant changes that I hadn’t noticed just the night before. (1) The Downtown Miami Pawn Shop has been obliterated. In fact, with the exception of some support beams and small overhang from what remains of the gas station, the development site of One Thousand Museum is free of all standing structures. (2) Miami Worldcenter banners are now wrapped around various fenced off lots marking the parameter of the development site for The Mall at Miami Worldcenter. One of the images on the banner shows a rendering of the upcoming Paramount Miami Worldcenter which is slated to break ground in the second quarter of 2015. It is a very exciting time for this burgeoning neighborhood. Three years from now, in many respects, Downtown Miami will be unrecognizable.
