GROUND BREAKING FOR CARGO FACILITIES SIGNALS NEW ERA AT MIAMI INTERNATIONAL
 AIRPORT
 Miami International Airport will enter a new era in global trade on Wednesday, June 17, 1992, when ground is broken for the construction of new freight handling facilities.
 The ceremony will take place at 11 a.m. on the lot bordered by N.W. 25th Street and 66th Avenue, site of the first three buildings to be erected. The event will bring together airport tenants, elected officials, community leaders, and members of the trade community.
 Construction of the first three new buildings marks the beginning of a phased development program that will create 11 state-of-the-art buildings. The first three buildings will provide approximately 628,000 square feet of office and cargo handling space, as well as, rooftop parking for employees.
 Miami International Airport, which is third in the nation and fifth in the world in total freight volume, will undergo a $500 million cargo facility expansion and renovation program in order to accommodate projections of over 2 million tons of cargo by the year 2005. Once completed, cargo warehouse space will increase from the present 1.1 million square feet to nearly 4 million square feet on the west and north sides of the airport.
