Miami-Dade County Commission offers perks for unnamed project

Miami-Dade County commissioners have given the go-ahead for $1 million
in incentives for a project by a mystery bidder that could be in the
range of $230 million. The name of the bidder has been withheld, as has
the location of the proposed project. But according to sources, the
location is a 2.5-million-square-foot facility at the Opa-Locka
Executive Airport. Last week the Beacon Council, the county’s economic
development partnership, was said to be wooing an investor for a
merchandise-mart-style initiative focused on Asian manufacturers. The incentives could expand with a vote next week. [SFBJ]
