The Real Deal Miami

Stadium parking gets pricier

October 22, 2009 03:02PM

Miami City Commissioners will vote on $135 million worth of bonds for the parking at the new Marlins stadium, a total that’s $41 million more than the project’s $94 million price tag. Commissioner Marc Sarnoff, who voted against the stadium plan earlier this year, said so-called soft costs would drive up the price, and was concerned at how much more the public was being asked to fundl. City Manager Pete Hernandez said the $41 million beyond the projected $94 million includes $15 million in reserves and millions more for design surveys, construction management and environmental consultants.
