Entrance Makeover at Miami

Four land areas around the road leading to the main entrance to Miami International Airport’s (MIA), known as Central Boulevard, have been made available to property developers. The Miami-Dade Aviation Department (MDAD), which operates MIA, is providing approximately 36 acres (14.5ha) to “finance, design, construct, renovate, manage and/or operate new facilities that will become attractions for MIA users when they enter and exit the airport.”
Possible additions include a conference centre, hotels, a retail shopping mall and office space.
“Ninety-six percent of the visitors to the city of Miami and its surrounding area – eight million people annually – arrive at MIA, and they all exit the airport on Central Boulevard,” said Miami-Dade Aviation Director José Abreu.
