Jackie Gleason Parking Lot Picked For Future Convention Hotel

This morning at a 9:30 AM meeting Miami Beach commissioners picked the fourth of four options, the parking lot behind the Jackie Gleason Theater, for the site of the planned Miami Beach Convention Center Hotel. The other three sites, which each had their own strengths and drawbacks, were above the 17th street garage, replacing Miami Beach City Hall, and in the P-Lot which, it has been mentioned, could be a great spot for a park. Putting the hotel at the Gleason lot would give it great, probably even completely indoors, access to the convention center, to that P-Lot Park, to the Gleason, to the New World Symphony, and to to the Lincoln Soundscape.
