Coconut Grove Convention Center, Former Home of Burn Notice, Up for Demo

Categories: Film and TV

As Burn Notice approaches the end of its final season, its former home is also facing extinction. Yep, it's ka-boom time for the Coconut Grove Convention Center.

exMiami reports that "Miami officials are already processing a demolition permit" for the building, which could be approved within a matter of weeks, while Curbed Miami reports that the City of Miami can't tear down the building fast enough.

It's all in service of advancing the Coconut Grove Waterfront Master Plan, which plans to transform the seaside edge of the Grove into a massive park space with a skate park, amphitheater, a series of gardens, and walking and biking trails. A restaurant, parking garage, sailing club, and new pier are also on the agenda.

That may be good news for outdoorsy folks in the Grove, but Burn Notice fans are still feeling wronged by the city for angling to remove the show in order to move forward with development. In July of last year, devoted fans stormed City Hall with handmade signs to convince the city to leave Burn Notice alone.

It didn't exactly work out for them, though; the show's seventh season, airing now, will be its last, the USA Network announced in May.
