MIAMI, FL – Commissioner Audrey M. Edmonson joined Historic Hampton House Trust Board Members Cecilia Stewart and Charlayne Thompkins,  Trust Board Chairwoman Opa-locka Commissioner Dorothy Johnson and Trust CEO Dr. Enid C. Pinkney, among other board members and guests, on a tour of the Historic Hampton House, 4200 NW 27 Ave., Miami to check up on the progress of its renovation.  The historic motel’s two-story, 30,000-square-foot MiMo-style main building will be fully restored to its early ‘60s heyday, a $6 million endeavor funded mostly with proceeds from voter-approved county bonds. The 12 apartment buildings behind it that were part of the motel were demolished and are being replaced by a privately developed affordable housing complex.  Completion of the Hampton House is expected in January 2015.
