New 580-Foot Hotel Planned At Genting’s Resorts World Omni

Resorts World appears to be moving forward with new development at their massive Miami property.

Yesterday (February 28), an application was submitted to the FAA to build a hotel at Resorts World’s Omni property at 1501 Biscayne Boulevard.

The hotel will rise 580 feet above ground, according to the proposal.

At that height, the hotel would be about double the size of the 28-story Hilton Miami Downtown currently located at the same property. The Hilton was originally built in 1978 as an Omni hotel, and includes 527 rooms.

This is the second FAA application submitted by Resorts World in as many months. In January, the company submitted plans for three towers on the former Miami Herald site.
