Economic Development
 
  • The

    Airport

    is our largest economic engine, representing

    $26.7 billion for local economy

    and supporting

    282,000 jobs

    (direct and indirect).
  • The

    Seaport

    is our 2nd largest economic engine, representing

    $17 billion for local economy

    and supporting

    176,000 jobs

    (direct and indirect).
  • Those large and small infrastructure projects you see in and across every single neighborhood are investments in our future. They are spurring

    1,000's of jobs

    and positioning us to emerge from the economic downturn better and stronger.
  • 56% of businesses

    participating in the construction of the Marlins

    Ballpark

    are local.

    2,400 workers

    have been on the site, to date, and we anticipate that

    5,000 workers

    will be on the site before the project is complete.
