From 1988 until it was demolished in 2008, the Miami Arena hosted teams such as the Miami Heat, the Florida Panthers and University of Miami basketball.

MDM proposed developing it with the Marriott Marquis Miami Worldcenter Hotel & Expo Center, a 1,700-room hotel with a large convention center. The developer was working on a public subsidy deal with city officials. It would have been South Florida’s largest hotel by rooms.
