“Downtown Miami is no longer an employment-only district where most people work during the day and leave at night,” Philippe Houdard, co-founder of Pipeline, tells GlobeSt.com. “People are now attracted to the area for its vibrancy and 24-7 culture. We designed the first Pipeline location with this in mind and created a work concept that represents the Miami of the future: creativity, innovation, and an entrepreneurial spirit.”

The City of Miami Commissioners, in particular Commissioner Marc Sarnoff, has told us they will not be renewing
the lease at the Coconut Grove Convention Center where Burn Notice is based.
Commissioner Marc Sarnoff has plans to build a park on the property where the Convention Center is located.
This park is linked to a private condominium that is being built across the street from our site.
He has told the other Miami Commissioners that he “is ready to go” with the demolition process.
The cost to move Burn Notice to another stage and office location will be at least 1 million dollars and
will take the final season of Burn Notice out of the city of Miami and possibly the state of Florida.
This not will not only impact the cast and crew and the 150 jobs it supplies per day, but is sending a message to
the world that Miami is not a friendly film community.
I would like each and every one of us to write to commissioner Sarnoff at – msarnoff@miamigov.com,
and let him know the impact this will place on your business revenue.
