A massive multi-story indoor sports and recreational facility is being planned near Miami’s Dolphin Mall in the Doral neighborhood. Named Destination Sport Miami, the building will span nearly 1 million square feet – soon to become one of the largest sports facilities in North America. The project is being developed by a group of backers lead by Hockey Hall of Famer Bryan Trottier, who signed a land lease for 20-acres with Cimabian Group. Robert Andrus, president of Andrus Architecture, is named as the architect.
