Bid to make Miami Herald building historic seeks to change public views

Oct 20, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Miami Herald

For just a few months shy of 50 years, The Miami Herald's hulking, block-long headquarters has occupied - some critics say marred - a prime spot on Biscayne Bay, a muscular symbol in marble, concrete, glass and steel of the newspaper's and its leaders' once-outsized clout in local affairs.

NO! Do not save the Miami Herald Building! The Dade heritage Trustís petition to declare the Miami Herald building couldnít hold up under the definition of what is supposed to be a structure of historical value . It was reported in the Miami Herald: http://www.miamiherald.com/2012/09/04/2984676... From the beginning of their attempts to stop Genting, the DHT has been paid off by the No Casinos PAC.

Díont equate the Miami Heraldís literary value with the building itself having historical value. The building has NO historical value. The Dade heritage Trustís petition to declare the Miami Herald building a historical landmark is bogus.

The Miami Herald building does not meet the criteria. It is not a historical landmark. The building is too ugly to be of artistic value. The people made it a noteworthy newspaper, not the building. The Dade Heritage Trustís application to declare the Miami Herald building as a historic structure is fradulent. Itís an attempt,†paid for by the No Casinos crowd,†to prevent competition for tourist and gambling dollars

The exterior of the Miami Herald building is hideous. It needs to be torn down. Improve the entire area with parks and with the resort Genting intends to build. It will be good for the city.
