Election Results: Voters In favor Of Watson Island Hotel, Sunset Place Redevelopment

Yesterday’s election results brought positive news for two major Miami development projects.

In Miami, 59 percent of voters approved a new hotel to be built on Watson Island, as part of a redevelopment of Jungle Island, according to the Herald.

The plan includes a 13-story, 300-room hotel. As with any project, it still needs administrative approval from Miami’s Planning & Zoning department.

The Sunset Place development project may also have been cleared for approval, with 63 percent of South Miami voters yesterday approving changes to allow a four-fifths vote to change land use codes needed for the project.

The project includes an 18-story hotel and two 14-story residential buildings.
