MIAMI (AP) - Miami's preservation board is considering whether to call The Miami Herald's soon-to-be-empty bayfront home a protected landmark.
The newspaper is moving to the former headquarters of the U.S. Southern Command in suburban Doral next year. The Herald's parent company sold its downtown property to the Genting Group in 2011. Genting has proposed building a resort with a casino at the site.
Some critics of Genting's plans are fighting to get the Herald's yellow building designated as a protected landmark. They tell the Herald (http://hrld.us/VseseL ) that a report by the city's historic preservation office supports their efforts.
The report finds that the building's history and design meet several criteria for landmark designation. However, it makes no recommendations to the board.
The board is scheduled to decide the building's status on Monday.
