From the June issue: Miami-Dade has occupancy issues. As tourism slumps in the wake of last year’s Zika virus threat and the ongoing financial and political unrest in Latin America, hotel development experts continue to warn that the supply of new rooms in Miami-Dade is far outstripping demand, and falling occupancy rates bear that out.

Some projects on the drawing board may not break ground, and others in the planning and construction phases will face even tougher financing hurdles in the coming months.
