Four parcels of land at the entrance to Miami International Airport are slated for a $665 million transformation in the Miami-Dade Aviation Department’s quest for additional revenue. Following a call for proposals from developers, a team led by construction firm Odebrecht is set to build a commercial complex on the site. “Airport City,” for which the proposal could change over the course of a six-month negotiation period, is currently expected to include a Florida International University medical compound, a 400-room Pullman Hotel, a lounge for cruise passengers, a 1,900 space parking garage, and an energy supply center. The county must give its final approval before the project can move forward. [Miami Today News]
