Preservation architect Richard Heisenbottle has been chosen by Miami city officials to design the renovation of the abandoned Miami Marine Stadium, according to The Miami Herald.

Heisenbottle and his team have restored Miami City Hall and the Olympia Theater. 

Part of the renovation design will include structural repairs with lighting, sound and seating repairs. The original architect, Hilario Candela will be a special consultant on the project. 

The city has not developed financing or operating plans for the $37 million renovation. 

The Miami International Boat Show recently used the grounds and basin of the stadium for their event in February. After the show was completed the grounds were supposed to be used as a "flex park", but that has not happened. The grounds of the stadium have been paved over and is currently empty.
