The South Florida Business Journal's Oscar Musibay reports
The Miami Herald has narrowed its search for a new home to roughly a handful of locations that include the former Florida Power and Light headquarters [at 9250 W. Flagler St.] in west Miami-Dade and the Bertram Yacht yard on the Miami River, according to sources.

In a story posted on the Journal's website last Friday, Musibay adds,
The Herald has been seeking between 80,000 and 100,000 square feet of office space for its administrative, editorial and other newspaper-related staff.
The scenarios publisher David Landsberg and the business staff at the newspaper are considering include relocating the administrative, editorial and other newspaper-related staff to be separate from the printing operation.
The company is also considering a joint printing operation in Miami-Dade with the Sun-Sentinel, according to sources.
The Herald hired Miami-based Blanca Commercial to find its new home. Through spokesman Tadd Schwartz, Tere Blanca, the firm’s principal, declined comment.
One of the sites the Herald is supposedly considering is property where the Bertram yacht company is located. The Bertram site, at 3663 NW 21st St., is more than 15 acres. It would involve a build-to-suit that may not include the printing operation. One source said Bertram currently has signs on the site on the factory side that states there is “space available”. It’s unclear how the Herald’s possible move there might impact the Bertram boat manufacturing operation.
