Miami Beach on Monday received qualifications from eight teams interested in a public-private partnership with the city to develop a 52-acre Miami Beach Convention Center District.

The area encompasses an existing 1.16 million-square-foot convention center. The city wants to add another 960,000 square feet and redevelop city-owned surrounding areas to include a new convention center hotel, outdoor public space, parking, restaurants and entertainment, as well as retail, commercial and residential areas. The plan could cost $1 billion or more.
