Marc Roberts Miami

Marc Roberts Miami
Marc Roberts has settled his dispute with the owner of a BP gas station where the Zaha Hadid-designed One Thousand Museum is planned.
The lawsuit was prompted by a letter sent from Roberts warning that his 2007 contract to buy the property remained valid and that One Thousand Museum developers are closing on the land ‘at their own risk’. Court records show that the two sides are now asking a judge to have the suit dismissed.
1000 Biscayne Tower, LLC, can now proceed to close on the station. Terms of the contract call for closing to take place before September 10, at a price between $27 million and $60 million.

Miami Sports For January from Marc Roberts

Miami Sports in the Winter from Marc Roberts

Looks like all we have to deal with are the Miami Heat for a few months until the opening of Spring Training. But that also doesn't mean much with the state of the Miami baseball "team".  I personally am looking forward to a little college all star games, but not a lot coming out of the University of Miami this year.
