Genting Gambling Rights Lawsuit Against Miami-Dade Dismissed

Genting Gambling Rights Lawsuit Against Miami-Dade Dismissed

Genting’s lawsuit against Miami-Dade County seeking to force a ruling on gambling rights has been dismissed.

In 2016, Genting filed a lawsuit that named State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle and Miami-Dade County, seeking a declaratory judgement on whether slot machines and card games would face local enforcement if a Gulfstream Park racing license was transferred to the Omni property on downtown Miami’s Biscayne Boulevard.

The company also filed a Petition for a Declaratory Statement with the Florida’s Department of Business and Professional Regulation on whether the state would allow the permit itself to be moved from Gulfstream.

In April, the DBPR ruled that the permit could not be moved, rendering the lawsuit against Miami-Dade moot.

In a May 23 court filing, both sides agreed to the dismissal without prejudice (allowing the suit to be potentially filed again), and each side will pay for their own legal fees.

In the meantime, we’re left with a large concrete pad. SMH.

…across the street from a vacant shell of a former, failed shopping mall. Better upzone and tear down more low-rise neighborhoods instead of logical, transit oriented smart growth!

No casinos in Paris and I wouldn’t consider London as a casino destination!!!

Wrong.
There are casinos in Paris. Only a few blocks from the Champs D’lysee.
Paris isn’t known for casinos (most people don’t even know they are there).
Basel, Switzerland has casinos.
Basel isn’t known for casinos
The Genting land has a project drawn with 2,000+ hotel rooms, condos, retail, a baywalk, restaurants, a convention center, etc.
Miami would not be known for casinos.

And hopefully, people would forget about the guy who ate another guys face off whilst the town idiots fear “another Vegas”.

Um, gambling helped build Miami because the lack of enforcement. It wasn’t until the downfall of Al Capone did regulations become enforced.

So let me get this straight this lawsuit was to move the gambling license from one place to another and it was denied. Does this mean Genting cannot get a license for this location at all now? If no, then lets hope they can re-apply and get it going. If yes, then it is time to sell the land and let someone else develop it.

That rendering is hysterical and not to scale at all!! Its missing the bus station and the arts center 🙂 totally misleading regardless genting now needs to sell out lets get a developer who doesnt need gambling to succeed here…

I have a full set of these renderings…they are amazing.
You need to look at the rendering published above a bit more closely. If you do, you can see where the Metromover track moves through the building precisely where the path is now.
Once you get that, it’s easy to see that the Arscht Center is behind the wide tower. While this angle looks like it drowns out the Arscht, the RWM project honors the set backs at Herald Circle and emphasizes the PAC.
RWM’s programming incorporated the Arscht as an amenity to comp VIPs. It would have ensured that the Performing Arts Center tickets would be sold nearly year round.

They should sell part of the land to Nader and let him build his museum there.

The museum would be perfect next to MDC and this site would be great for a resort…

I used to want museums, but then I saw how lame they are here in Miami. So, no, no more Museums. Go do some research in other cities on how they are successful and then come build here. We (Miami) are so young, we have no excuse.

Just imagine if this would have been built!!!!! My goodness it would have catapulted Miami to a whole new level. A Floridian can dream right??? Unfortunately the powers that be in Florida don’t want to see us become more than a retirement state.

The Gulfstream Racetrack and Casino is mainly in Broward,hence the problem with the transfer.
They should buy a small Miami- Dade casino and try again.

I would say join forces with the Seminole tribe an use that license for gambling. That’s better than nothing right? Only problem with that is it competing with Seminole Hard rock in Hollywood. Me personally I think it would work either way Seminole would rack in revenue from both locations. Still a win win for them an Genting will still profit from half the casino an all the resort portion.

Seminole Hard Rock is on an Indian reservation.

“Only problem”?
No.
Genting owns controlling interest in Noreigian Cruise Lines. Carnival has lobbied against their competitor.
Genting is proposing a convention center.
Miami Beach Connvention Center and Miani Connvention Center (MDM/Marriott), Orlando Convention Center has lobbied against their competitor.

The room where the machines and tables are set back off the waterfront, off the lobby level, and out if the way. The gaming is a small % of the project.
That the public continues to fear Vegas is a testament to their ignorance.
