A section of the former Miami Herald building near downtown was demolished Monday morning.
The site, between the MacArthur and Venetian causeways on the bay, is being cleared for a resort and residential complex.
The Malaysian gambling giant Genting in 2012 pulled back on its plans for a mega-casino resort on the site after facing a backlash over the project's proposed size. Last year it proposed a more traditional mix of condo towers, about 500 hotel rooms and a ground-floor cluster of shops and restaurants.
