So Long Historic Dade County Courthouse? Some Say It's Time For A New One

, Daily Business Review


Miami-Dade's chief judge says it's time to retire the historic Dade County Courthouse as the building fights basement flooding and other structural problems.

    They should turn this building into the Miami City Hall. It‘s in the center of the booming city, and the first thing visitors will see when they arrive by train. The current City Hall (at the old Pan Am terminal in Coconut Grove) is reminiscent of a bygone era where people didn‘t want to be in the business district. Miami wants growth in its urban core, and they should be setting an example by moving there.

    And while I‘m at it, they should turn the Freedom Tower in to the Cuban Exile Museum (instead of building a new museum on a waterfront parcel downtown). It holds significance to the community. More so then any new building that would take up limited waterfront land.

    The current City Hall (Pan Am building) should be turned in to a Maritime/Sea Plane museum.
