Homestead may very well be the next Hollywood, if Commissioner Joe Martinez gets his way. Commissioner Martinez has come out in support of the Trump Organizations proposal to build on 790 acres of county owned land near the Homestead Air Reserve. The county commission has given the property appraisers office 180 days to research the feasibility of the plans, and 90 days to report preliminary findings. The location of Homestead was chosen due to its proximity to Latin and Central America, Europe, and New York. When asked for comment Commissioner Martinez had this to say, “There are challenges for sure, Trump is a real estate man and the first thing he says is know your property. There are things that have to be worked out but…. You gotta dream. Las Vegas came out of a desert. You have to start somewhere.”
The architect hired by the Trump Organization projects the complex to have a 250,000 square foot sound stage, hotel, airport, heliport, and auxiliary structures that can hold up to 140 sets. The weather in South Florida also contribute to the feasibility of filming here. Rock of Ages was recently filmed in Miami and the television shows CSI Miami and Burn Notice are also filmed in Miami. The Trump Organization estimates that 16,000 jobs will be created and up to $300,000 million would be contributed to the local economy. Further, a film shoot would create $260,000 per day and a tv shoot would create $300,000 per day all towards the loca economy. This would be excellent news for South Florida. South Florida has nothing to lose with the addition of the movie industry, and we look forward to reporting more!
