On February 10, construction began at the Miami Marine Stadium site to improve the grounds around the stadium. Workers have already removed a lot of the trees and fencing on the site. The price for the grounds renovations, which will include event space and a park will cost $18 million.
The Miami International Boat Show will be held at the stadium grounds starting in 2016 on is on a year to year lease.
Miami Commissioners are looking for an architectural and engineering firm to design the stadium restoration, which would come at a cost of about $37.8 million, according to the Miami Herald.
The Village of Key Biscayne is suing the City of Miami and the Boat Show for fear that events held at the stadium will only increase traffic going in and out of Key Biscayne.
