Convention Center Wars

In the latest installment of the telenovela-like Miami Beach Convention Center renovation saga, commissioners say they want a "design-build" process, meaning the successful bidder would both design and build the thing. First, though, state law dictates they have to hire a "design criteria professional". While we don't entirely understand the dynamics of the new arrangement, it is clearly a departure from the architect-developer model previously sought for the project. The city hopes to have a design-build contract in place by July 2015. [Miami Herald; Previous]
