Miami tweaks plan to fund Marine Stadium renovations

The City of Miami commission slashed potential bond funding to renovate a languishing Miami landmark on Thursday, but the city seems to be inching closer towards revitalizing what was once a major marine attraction.

The Miami Marine Stadium on Virginia Key — designed by Cuban architect Hilario Candela and built in the 1960s to host powerboat races — has been in a state of disrepair for decades. The structure was declared unsafe and was closed to the public after Hurricane Andrew in 1992, and has since become a magnet for graffiti and vandalism. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2018.
