Nix the Trolley and put the $200 mill into BayLink

What's wrong with this picture? As far as MVB is concerned, nothing. Recent talk about building a $200 million trolley car system in Miami is getting some mixed reactions from Miami commissioners-- and well it should. We're against the trolley car for a host of reasons which can be found here. We're for a monorail system linking Miami and the Beaches which can be found here. That $200 mill could help make a high-speed link between Miami and the Beaches a reality much sooner than later-- especially if some forward thinking visionaries could lure Disney in to co-build BayLink with the promise of land for a hotel on the beach and a port on Watson Island. Getting a Disney cruise ship-- or any cruise ship for that matter-- to make Miami a stop instead of only a point of departure will benefit everyone in the county-- especially when tourists and locals can get back and forth between Miami and the Beaches quickly and with little hassle.

Miami Beach is quickly losing its charm of being exactly what it is named...a BEACH TOWN. A light rail along the MacArthur causeway will only bring masses of people from across the bay who will no doubt overcrowd and further litter our beaches. Why spend millions of dollars for a rail system when using what is already here, meaning our bay and a water taxi system, could accomplish the same thing. Let the city of Miami be the place for giant high rise buildings, casino hotels and 24 hour entertainment districts and lets keep Miami Beach the way it is...a Beach Town.

Property consists of two, facing, two-story buildings with private courtyard between and dedicated off street parking. Spacious units with nice floor plans. Units rent very easily. Property is also a good candidate for condominium conversion or for building a new town home project directly on the golf course.
