WHAT IS AND NEVER WAS -- HUIZENGA'S WAYNE'S WORLD
Published December 20, 1994
Monday's cover story in the MIAMI HERALD's Business section examines the now-defunct Blockbuster Park, Wayne Huizenga's mega- development that was to have been built in Miramar, FL. Now that the plan has been aborted, it remains uncertain what to do with the land and where Huizenga will build a new hockey arena and baseball park for his teams. One possibility is for Blockbuster parent company Viacom to sell the land -- possibly to home developers. Or, they could develop the land themselves, perhaps with a partner. If the park had been built in Miramar, Huizenga's Panthers would have moved to a new arena there, a site he has yet to rule out. Other proposed sites for an arena include Hollywood, near Joe Robbie Stadium and a site near Sawgrass Mills. As for a baseball stadium, Huizenga would like to move his Marlins out of Joe Robbie Stadium and build in Miramar, but he acknowledges that is a remote possibility. Huizenga: "I don't think there are any front-runners. I just think we have to start all over" (Don Finerock, MIAMI HERALD, 12/19).
