Miami signs 10-year deal for construction at boat show site

The city of Miami took another step Thursday to advance plans for the Miami International Boat Show’s new home at Miami Marine Stadium Park & Basin.

The Miami City Commission voted Thursday to award a 10-year contract to Eventstar to erect tents and other temporary structures at the location, reported The Real Deal, a South Florida Real Estate news site.

Key Biscayne officials, who have filed lawsuits against both the city and the National Marine Manufacturers Association, said they will continue to fight the move of the show to the location. Show plans have also been challenged by an alliance of environmental groups.

“Today’s actions prove there really is no measure the city won’t take to keep the Miami International Boat Show’s operator happy and evade the public process,” Key Biscayne mayor Mayra Lindsay said in a statement. “Every step of the way they have hidden the true intent and scope of this plan, which is clearly far more invasive and permanent than they’d like taxpayers to believe.”
