Ugo Colombo and Portman CMC Modify Convention Center Proposal

Ugo Colombo and the other members of the Portman CMC team have recently modified their original proposal for the Miami Convention Center to incorporate feedback from the Miami Beach community. “The residents made it clear that the Jackie Gleason Theater is an important landmark they want to keep. We listened, we heard, and we’ve found a way to adjust the master plan in order to keep the theater in place while still achieving our other objectives,” said Jack Portman, of Portman Holdings.

The team is planning to restore the Jackie Gleason Theatre and integrate it with their plans to turn the Convention Center into a superior urban environment. They aim to provide residents with public outdoor spaces while maximizing its economic benefit to the Miami Beach Community.
