David Beckham couldn't get it. Multiple other proposals fizzled out. Now a new developer is hoping to secure a 90 year lease at a fuel spill facility site at the southwest corner of PortMiami to develop a new waterfront expo center, 800 room hotel, marina, and commercial facilities geared towards the marine industry, called Miami Yacht Harbor. While proponents are saying it's about time the county gets around to developing this corner of the port, opponents are either saying the bid process should be more transparent (the developers are hoping for a no-bid lease) or that the land should be reserved for future port uses.
