South Florida Business Journal recently interviewed Jack Portman, from the Portman – CMC Group, on their plans for the Miami Convention Center. The Portman – CMC Group proposed new designs that call for approximately 100,000 square feet of retail space, which is less than half of what the group initially proposed. Portman said this decision was made based on a combination of feedback from the public and the city commission.
