Business owners in Miami’s Little Havana neighborhood are eagerly awaiting the construction of the new Marlins baseball stadium later this year. They hope the construction workers — 5,000 to 6,000 people are expected to take part in the construction project — will expand their customer base, which shrank after the demolition of the Orange Bowl stadium last year. Thousands of construction workers came to the area around the stadium July 8 to fill out job applications. The stadium is slated to open in 2012, and business owners expect that to bring even more business to the neighborhood.
