From Critical Miami:

"Here we are, then—a half a billion or so dollars and a couple of decades later, and our performing arts center is open at last. Let's first stop and acknowledge something: The center will present many amazing shows in the future. The Miami Art Museum and Science Museum will have their buildings open. A tunnel may be built under the Port of Miami. Biscayne Boulevard will be reborn, with new streetscaping, humongo towers, and brand new streetcar service. But probably nothing, for many, many decades will be as momentous as the opening of these buildings. This is the biggest deal that will come in Miami for a long time. "
