TBT (January 15, 2015) - 4 years ago the Miami Herald building was still under the process of being torn down after initially starting demolition April 2014. The building would be completed demolished in March 2015 and the site is now used to host events such as Art Basel.

After months of slowly dismantling the Miami Herald building and beginning the official demolition in April 2014, the building is almost completely torn down.

The Northern piece of the building is all that remains and should be fully down by the end of January.

So far, there are no plans for construction in the foreseeable future. Getting has been quiet on the since gambling failed to become legalized. The Miami Herald reports that Miami Tomás Regaledo has not heard from Genting in months and they have not submitted any plans.

Since buying the 14 acre site for $236 million there have been speculation that Genting plans to sell the site, especially for the demand of land on the waterfront

A Look At The Former Miami Herald Building Site

Built in 1963, the Miami Herald Building started to be demolished in April 2014 after being purchased by Genting Groupfor $236 million in 2011 before being completely torn down in March 2015.

Since that time, Genting had plans to built a mega resort with hotels, condos and a casino and at one point there was talk that they would try and sell the land. A 36 story hotel with 300 rooms was approved in April 2017, at the current bus terminal, but activity has not started on that.

Since the Miami Herald Building next to Biscayne Bay has been torn down, the site has sat vacant aside from Art Basel events every year in December.
