Is this the Miami Herald's new home? [Part II]

Could the former Southern Command HQ building at 3511 N.W. 91st Ave. in Doral
become the Miami Herald's new home?

Oscar Musibay of the South Florida Business Journal continues to stay out front of the pack on the story of the Miami Herald's quest to find a new home.

Musibay reported last week the "Herald’s negotiations to relocate to part of 21 acres in Miami that are home to outgoing Bertram Yachts had stalled.

Today Musibay reports that "The Miami Herald is in discussions with the owner of the former U.S. Southern Command headquarters in Doral to make it the newspaper’s next home."
The newspaper is seeking about 120,000 square feet of office space, and about 150,000 square feet for its printing operation and parking.

The facility at 3511 N.W. 91st Ave., has been vacant since the Southern Command relocated next door in December 2010. It has an existing 153,000-square-foot building that sits on 9 acres.

The former Southern Command complex and the home of Bertram Yachts on the Miami River were relocation finalists. The Herald eventually chose to negotiate with the owner of the Bertram Yachts land, but the deal stalled for several reasons.
In an email last Jan. 13, Herald publisher David Landsberg told staffers that the paper was "still vetting various location options and finalizing plans" and that "We still expect to vacate One Herald Plaza by late-May 2013."

  1. That'll be great -- the Herald staffers can meet with the Associated Press staffers for lunches and story-swaps! Maybe, if the AP has some staffers in Broward, we might get some Broward news in print in the Herald!
