Construction About To Begin On Guitar Shaped Hotel At Seminole Hard Rock

Update: Construction is now underway.

 

A major expansion of the Seminole Hard Rock hotel and casino in Hollywood appears about to begin.

The tribe filed last week for FAA permission to install a 550-foot tall crane, with work to begin on March 1.

Last year, the tribe announced plan for a new 36-story story hotel at the Hard Rock Hollywood casino complex. The new hotel will include 800 beds, bringing the total at the campus to 1,273.

Also included in the expansion will be new restaurants, cafes, bars and a nightclub.

Klai Juba Wald Architects of Las Vegas designed the original Hard Rock hotel building in Hollywood, and is listed on renderings for the new building.

Would have rather had the shops and the outdoor clubs… it made them different. Now they are like every other casino down here. Cookie cutter

I was upset to see the outdoor area gone. It was nice to go there. This new project does not sound that great to me at all.

This is the most hideous design ever.
It will probably receive the distinguished honor of one of the ugliest buildings in the world.

Wondering if the new hotel by the airport will be built in a shape of an airplane and the one by the cemetery in a shape of a casket.

I think the design of the building would have been ok if it was just a gesture of a guitar. But I agree, having the building look exactly like a guitar is tacky.

Tacky is an under statement.
It’s ridiculous!!!
And given the location, it will be such an eyesore for miles.
Thank God I don’t need to drive that way for anything.

This is what happens when Genting is not given the green light to build on Biscayne Bay. I guess the only loser is the State of Florida

Luckily Las Vegas style casino resorts are no where near Biscayne Bay or Downtown Miami and are out where this one is.

There’s a reason why Hard Rock is expanding; it’s meant to be a one-stop shop that locks you in–the goal of every casino and why synergy with other businesses becomes impossible.

The same might be said/has been said about Disney. Take a good look at Orlando/Lake Buena Vista and tell me people up there are NOT making money. Why are so many of you against casinos? I go to Vegas every year. I don’t gamble!!! But I like the entertainment and restaurants. Am I crazy? What are you guys afraid off? Please don’t bring up Atlantic City. Atlantic City was a dump before casinos – the weather sucks. Miami/Beaches would be even better than Vegas.

I guess being next to the Everglades is the new Central location for South Florida. Only in the U.S. would something like this happen with such gorgeous coastal areas.

This isn’t next to the Everglades. It’s east of the Turnpike in Hollywood.

Far west enough for me to be The Everglades.

So much for technicalities Marc. Bottom line is it’s far enough that it encroaches the boundaries of the Everglades. Are we ever going to put a moratorium on suburban sprawl?

Look at the map, this isn’t Miccossookie. You’d have to cross Davie, Cooper City, and Southwest Ranches to the west of this to get to the Everglades.

It’s closer to the ocean than it is to the everglades. And the boundary between the everglades and developmental land has been set, so I have no idea what you’re complaining about.
