Miami, like its basketball team, is at the top of its game - we are emerging as a global destination for tourism, business, arts and culture, finance, entertainment, and more. Maintaining this momentum will require collective humility and smarts, both in terms of where and how we deploy our community’s chief assets. If this recipe for success sounds familiar, it’s because we just witnessed a similar path to victory play out on the hard court. Now, if only we could borrow Coach Spoelstra’s playbook...

As reported in this week's South Florida Business Journal, the City of Miami has begun environmental remediation of two sites that will serve as the future homes of Miami Art Museum and Miami Science Museum. The remediation process is the pre-cursor to vertical construction of the museum buildings, which will get going within the next few months when MAM breaks ground on its Herzog & de Meuron-designed home.
