Miss Universe 2014 Host City is MU-Ready!
Miss Universe 2014 host city is not that much of what we expected. We haven’t heard much about the host city of the Miss Universe 2014 pageant, have we? We never even thought that a newly-built city would be able to host a big TV production like that of Miss Universe. So let’s talk about Doral, Miami, shall we?
Doral is a central-north city in Miami-Dade County in Florida also known as Doralzuela due to the large community of Venezuelans in the city. It is an industrial-suburban neighborhood on the west of Miami International Airport, with a total population of 46k. The city came into being after Doris and Alfred Kaskel (the owners of Doral Golf Resort and Spa) coined their names (becoming “Doral”) and built the city in 2003.
Doral is very much well-known of its Doral Golf Resort and Spa (now Trump National Doral Miami) where the city’s name really originated. So from Country Club to a major city of progress and growth, Doral is one of the fastest-growing neighborhoods in Florida. Trump National Doral Miami is today part of the Trump Organization. It was reportedly purchased for $150 million in 2011. Trump Hotel Collection has plans to renovate Doral by investing more than $250 million in capital improvements over the next 18 months.So the venue is like the home of Mr. Donald Trump..So “ho ho ho! Welcome to my kingdom!” (with Donald Trump’s santa-like voice).
Here’s a video presentation of Trump National Doral, the official residence of Miss Universe 2014 candidates.
The city is also safe for our candidates. According to our research of Florida and other state lists there living in Doral, Florida as of November 15, 2014. The ratio of number of residents in Doral to the number of sex offenders is 3,703 to 1. The number of registered sex offenders compared to the number of residents in this city is a lot smaller than the state average. The city government is even more excited for the event and has taken steps and plans in preparation for the Miss Universe month; restaurants, mall, and other establishments are going to extend their operation hours to cater the tourist who will be coming to the city to witness the biggest beauty battle of the year.
So Doral Miami is fabulously MU-ready!
Now what about the place of the event? Where exactly in Doral? As it was confirmed and press released, the Florida International University will be the official venue of the pageant, while other pageant-related activities (especially the hotel itself) are booked in Trump National Doral.
FIU Stadium by the way has a seating capacity of 20,000 and we believe this is going to be a huge venue for the finals night, which is pretty good and big enough to accommodate thousands of spectators. The university also has its recreation center which can hold other pageant-related events like rehearsals and galas.
So see you all guys in Doral Miami and go cheer up for ya’ ladies! Toodles!
