Miami Mayor Manny Diaz is spearheading an effort to get the Bacardi headquarters building on Biscayne Boulevard declared a historic structure, effectively protecting it from demolition and preserving the blue-and-white tiled tower and its square annex. Bacardi USA will move its head office to Coral Gables later this year, vacating a signature 1960s building seen as a prime example of the era’s aesthetic by preservationists and architects. A hearing is scheduled for next week.
