General Manager Ozzie Dominguez leading dynamic Dadeland Mall through period of community growth
As more and more residential and commercial developments fill the skyline in the Kendall area of southwest Miami-Dade, a 43-year-old shopping center is becoming the focal point of the new downtown there.
