Dolphins paid for Miami Chamber of Commerce study saying Sun Life Stadium adds $1B to economy

Dolphins paid for Miami Chamber of Commerce study saying Sun Life Stadium adds $1B to economy | Sports Management.4465530 | Scoop.it

The Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce wants to increase hotel taxes to help pay for a $400 million renovation at Sun Life Stadium.

 

The business group’s board on Wednesday endorsed the Miami Dolphins’ financing plan for their home stadium, saying the upgrade will be good for the county’s economy. The Dolphins want an annual $3 million state subsidy and millions of dollars in Miami-Dade hotel taxes each year to fund the biggest renovation in the stadium’s history, including a partial canopy to shield spectators from the sun and rain.

 

Under the plan, Miami-Dade would increase mainland hotel taxes to 7 percent from 6 percent, making them the highest in Florida. Miami Beach is also expected to raise its hotel tax to 7 percent to fund improvements of the city’s convention center.

 

Sun Life is vying with the new $1 billion stadium in the San Francisco area for the 2016 Super Bowl, and the Chamber’s resolution endorsing the higher taxes cites the economic value of winning that game. A Chamber study funded by the Dolphins concluded that the Dolphins and Sun Life generate about $1 billion a year to South Florida’s economy. Citying the study, the resolution said the stadium renovation would create 4,000 construction jobs and pump an additional $2 billion into Miami-Dade’s economy over 15 years...

Five of The World's Most Sustainable Sports StadiumsGreen Building ElementsSustainability is one of the most important aspects of any new architectural design and in recent years we've seen this spread into the world of sports stadiums.

Sustainability is one of the most important aspects of any new architectural design and in recent years we’ve seen this spread into the world of sports stadiums. Traditionally, the concept behind sports stadiums has been to create a colosseum-like structure which adds theatre and creates an incredible atmosphere with little prior thought ever given to sustainability. Recently, things have begun to change and we’re now seeing more and more architects giving sustainability the attention it deserves when designing new sports stadiums...

The Miami Marlins new ballpark has now reached the terrible two's as a second season has been completed. The promise of Marlins' Owner, Jeffrey Loria to spend money to put a competitively great product on the field has yet to come to fruition.  Jeffrey Loria put together a star studded team, but without instance he quickly scrapped his new way of doing business for his no risk, big reward old way of thinking.  So while Jeffrey Loria collects a revenue sharing check at the end of each season for being at the bottom of the league, Miami-Dade County is left with the bill as Jeffrey Loria dines and ditches.
