Donald Trump and Miami-Dade County Commission Chairman Joe Martinez have proposed the construction of a film studio “city” in Homestead, the South Florida Business Journal reported. The so-called Trump Studio City would be built on 3.16 miles of county-owned land. “Many movies and TV shows have been filmed in Miami, but we’ve never been truly able to capitalize on the film industry as many studios opt to complete their work in Los Angeles,” Martinez said. According to Michael Cohen, executive vice president and special counsel to Trump, the industry could yield $262,000 per day in revenue to the area. The county attorney’s office has been authorized by the commission to publish a report on the land. [SFBJ]
