The New York construction company OHLA Building, a subsidiary of the Spanish group OHLA, has been commissioned to build a macro sports complex in Miami (Florida, USA), which will be baptized as Destination Sport Miami, with works valued at around 150 million dollars (about 135 million of euros). The design will depend on the Andrus Architecture studio and the works should begin in 2022 and the opening is expected from 2023.
The facility will be built in the west of Miami-Dade County on more than 80,000 square meters of land, which will make it one of the largest in the country under cover.
The future Destination Sport Miami will host 35 sports disciplines, such as basketball (18 courts), soccer, hockey (two courts), baseball, volleyball (36 courts) and tennis (11). It will also have an Olympic pool, a wave simulator for surfing and a gym of nearly 1,500 square meters. The forecast is that it will welcome some 2.5 million visitors a year, for whom catering services will also be provided and there will be commercial establishments.

The project provides for the building to be self-sufficient from an energy point of view, with a roof and facades created with solar radiation receiving plates.
OHLA has just been awarded, through the subsidiary Judlau Contracting, a $150 million project to improve the West 79th Street roundabout and bridge in New York. And it shares with ACS the consortium that has submitted the best offer to complete the works on the Maryland light rail, known as the Purple Line. This latest order exceeds 2,000 million euros.
The United States is the great foreign market for the company chaired by Luis Amodio, with a special presence on the East Coast, although its largest project is in California. In Orange County, it remodels 26 kilometers of Interstate 405 for almost 1,300 million dollars. The Spanish company operates through the subsidiaries OHLA USA, Community Asphalt, OHLA Building and Judlau.
