ACE Miami Beach Convention Center Plans: Five Architectural Features in the Works

After an arduous decision-making process, one wrought with scandal, debate, and more than a few impassioned missives to save the Fillmore, Miami Beach commissioners selected ACE as the team to redevelop the Miami Beach Convention Center.

What does that mean, exactly? According to the ACE team, it means a whole new Miami Beach, with the redeveloped property serving not just as a center for conventions but as the center of the entire city. If architect Rem Koolhaas and his team successfully carry out the full extent of their plans, South Beach will never look the same.

The details are still subject to change, but ACE's $600 million plan is made reality, here's what's coming to the beach.
