Irresponsible bid handling by Miami-Dade governments is costing businesses and taxpayers hundreds of millions.

Bidders incur high costs. Every time government changes its mind and starts over, bid expenses become losses.

The more that happens, the more bidders raise prices to compensate – and the more taxpayers pay.

And governments are changing their minds more frequently.

With only a few weeks of construction to go, the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden is preparing to open its new $45 million Adam Rose and Peter McQuillan Arts Center. After nearly 20 months of construction, the arts center is to open in April and usher in a new era of exhibits at the gardens – an indoor one.

The 3,000-square-foot complex will house an art gallery and set the stage for different genres of music shows, from gospel to chamber music to jazz.

Years ago, Miami-Dade County officials set aside $20 million in bond money to one day revive the historic Coconut Grove Playhouse.

That day has finally arrived, thanks to the combined efforts of Miami-Dade County, the City of Miami and Florida International University.

Last week, county officials announced they’d met a Jan. 15 deadline to clear up old debts and encumbrances, requirements set forth by the state before the county and university could sign a long-term lease of the aging theater. The theater is state property.

A team of South Florida real estate professionals will head to the city of light at the end of the month to showcase some of the region’s new projects to potential Parisian clientele.

For the trip, MC2 Realty partnered with the recently formed Fédération des Professionnels de L’Immobilier de Miami (FPIM) and those behind some of South Florida’s new residential real estate projects, said Marie-Charlotte Piro, vice president of MC2 Realty and founder and president of the federation.

If you harbor even a sliver of doubt about how promises Genting made in seeking a Miami mega-casino would play out, its pleas in federal court last week tell you all you need to know.

Genting pitched its casino as an economic engine: 30,000 jobs at what it called good wages and conditions – Genting told us workers would toil in air conditioning and wear uniforms, and all they’d need was a high school diploma.

For a man who’s been around the world, with his family in tow nonetheless, Germany’s Consul General Juergen Borsch has a remarkable energy.

For other consuls, you might console yourself with the knowledge that he’s still in his first year at his Miami post. After Warsaw, Damascus, Bonn and Berlin to name just a few previous landing spots, Mr. Borsch has found a new home on Biscayne Boulevard for his four-year gig as Deutschland’s consul.

Miami’s robust international trade business heads into 2014 with a largely lackluster outlook.

Through the first 11 months of 2013, trade declined with two of Miami’s top five trading partners, Colombia and Venezuela. And industry observers expect year-end figures to show that the dollar value of trade through the Miami customs district declined for all of last year.

As 2014 unfolds, observers expect international trade levels through the US are likely to be flat this year.

If it’s hard for students to return to school after winter break, it may be even more difficult for a college provost. Rolando Montoya, provost of Miami Dade College, doesn’t have just a couple classes to worry about – he has an entire school.

And his school has multiple campuses.

The winter and spring seasons in South Florida bring more than just cooler weather: they also usher in a variety of events ranging from musical theater to international boat shows.

With the holiday season finally coming to a close and Miami regaining some level of normality, what a better way to kick off the year than with a few culturally stimulating events. With so many to choose from, deciding on what to fill your already crowded schedule with can become a task of its own.

Here are some noteworthy happenings that the season has to offer:

Midtown, Coral Gables and Edgewater residential property executives are reporting strong occupancy and rental rates.

“Since we bought our inventory in Midtown we’ve seen rents go from, on average … $1.80 range to go up to $2.25 a foot in a two-year period,” said Sam Beznos, principal at Beztak Companies.

Part of that has to do with the rental market, the appeal of the area and the improving economy, he said.

“If we had more units available to rent, we could rent them,” Mr. Beznos said.

Our Etiquette Department has received many requests (all from one person) to explain the mysterious term “RSVP.”

Our serial requester makes that plea every time we go to one of those gatherings where you get a name tag. No matter how late we arrive, the table is still deep in tags. But when we go inside, a large contingent wears hand-lettered badges, the scarlet letter of the unexpected and the uninvited.

“Don’t people know what RSVP means?” she asks Mr. Manners.

For two days this month, Miami will host a delegation from Qatar on one stop of their tour of the US to learn about American tourism and sporting practices in preparation for the World Cup 2022, which will be held in Qatar.

The delegation will be coming from Atlanta, and has already visited cities on the West Coast. For the US Export Assistance Center, however, Miami offers an international flair that will come in handy when hosting the global futbol event.

Be sure to tell them about the American Dream and how it is alive and well in Miami, Florida. Billions of dollars will be spent downtown on new towers and infrastructure. Miami is the new capitol of growth in 2014. If the city gets approved as an EB5 center the development levels will only increase further. We need to build our supertower rivaling the Burj Khalifa. #Magiccityeb5 #MiamiEB5 #investmentgreencard
