Probably not, although some may try.
Following is a case study illustrating why government shouldn't ever have anything to do with business or get involved in any way with any deal to subsidize any sports team owner -- to include Loria.
Which is what the City of Miami did when it agreed to build the parking garages, a relatively small part (~20%) of the overall stadium deal.
Instantly, they found a way to get their fingers deeply into the pie. Not satisfied with just parking cars, something they might potentially understand, they just had to dictate what the local retail scene around the new stadium would look like.
After 2 years of trying to lease the parking garage retail spaces, exactly ZERO businesses have opened in the garages.
How much retail space is in the garages?
NW garage: 7,625 + 7,851 + 8,438
NE garage: 11,864 + 9,812
SW garage: 7,691
Total: 53,281 sq ft.
Estimated rental rate: $25/sq ft/yr, triple-net basis.
Miami Parking Authority gets 100% of lease proceeds, estimated to be about 1.3 million/year, if the space was actually occupied.
MPA wasted at least 40K trying to get the space rented, with no results other than puffery.
In August, 2011 MPA thought they had letters of interest for about 30,000 sq ft.
Then, Sluggers, the sports bar/restaurant next to Wrigley since 1985, which had expressed interest rejected the site after visiting and researching the area. Following that, many other potential entertainment, restaurant and retail tenants also said no.
Some of the others which fell through (there are probably more we haven't heard of):
Lime Fresh Mexican Grill - signed lease, 625 sq ft, never built-out
100 Fires (cigar store) - signed lease, unknown sq ft, never built-out
Latin Corner Sports Bar & Grill - signed letter of intent for 3,000 sq ft for 10 years, never signed lease
Presidente Market & Café - contemplated 8,400 sq ft
The Tilted Kilt - Irish pub with full liquor license and semi-nekkid women - contemplated 8,500 sq ft
Sonic Beach - Sonic restaurant open 24-7 with full liquor license - contemplated 5,500 sq ft
Teriyaki Experience - full-service, seated restaurant with full liquor license
Menchie's Frozen Yogurt
Navarro Discount Pharmacy
Houlihan's American restaurant and bar
Muscle Maker Grill
Dave & Buster's
Chuck E. Cheese
Hurricane Grill & Wings
Los Ranchos Steakhouse
Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza
That would make the MPA and their real estate agents at least oh-for-31.
The first two on the list apparently signed leases (one source disagrees on Lime Fresh) for small amounts of space, but nobody disagrees that they were never built-out and, for whatever reason(s) scrapped the deals. The next four were apparently at least somewhat seriously interested (square footage estimates of the potential leases were leaked/published,) but no lease for these potentially larger amounts of space was ever signed.
Businesses generally expect a suitable shell when renting, including stuff like paint-ready drywall and utilities ready to be turned on. The City of Miami apparently still plans to lease the space with no walls, no services and no allowances for tenant build-out. Ridiculous. Build-out to usual standards would cost about 3 million -- money the city hasn't spent -- so far.
In August, 2012, there were some indications that city officials or functionaries were involved with turning down specific tenants because they "didn't fit" into their "plan."
What plan is that? To quote Art Noriega, head dude at the MPA: “We want to make it more of an entertainment area than a grocery store area.”
The MPA demonstrates yet again that bureaucrats need to stay far, far, far away from anything to do with the private sector, they have no clue and they never will.
The best part of the city's total fustercluckage that is the leasing of the garage retail spaces is that Loria and the Marlins had absolutely nothing to do with it. It's strictly a matter of politicians and bureaucrats who think that they know best and therefore it will be done their way or not at all. So far, it's not at all.
Did it never occur to them that a few "low-end" fast-food operations like Subway or Quiznos or Pollo and a drug store or two and perhaps a bakery and maybe even a grocery store and an immigration attorney's office might be good for the neighborhood? Instead of nothing but "high-end" entertainment and restaurants that will do almost no business other than on 81 home dates because the area is low-to-middle income? That the locals won't be impressed by dancing girls, but might appreciate and patronize businesses which meet their needs?
Of course not. They know better than anyone else. And their superior knowledge has cost the City of Miami at least 1.3 million and counting. And that's a direct detriment to Miami taxpayers, not the tourists who pay the hotel bed-tax that pays for the stadium.
Zero. Spaces. Leased.
Close enough for government work.
