Massive Tents Being Built At Resorts World Miami, But Baywalk Still Closed

At the former Miami Herald site, massive tents on top of a newly poured concrete slab are now under construction.

Construction is costing nearly $400,000.

A construction permit was approved despite the developer failing to open a Baywalk behind the property.

What’s the story behind not opening Baywalk?
They build these ugly ass tents for a bunch of snobby New Yorkers to gawk at ugly paintings for a few days out of the year but they aren’t required to open something that is beneficial for the whole community?

It’s private property, they can do whatever they want. Allowing public access behind the tents, facing the bay (for people to steal expensive art work) isn’t smart.

Art Basel is a 3-4 day event out of a 365 day year…you can’t beef up security or limit access for that period of time and have it open for the remainder of the year? Interesting logic…

It’s literally in the code to give access for a public baywalk….

City should revoke the CO until they open the Bay Walk.

I bet they’ll find the resources to open that overnight.

City of Miami doesn’t care enough about it’s residents to do that.

I don’t blame genting… Like everything else in Miami it probably requires 40 years of studies before it can then go to a commitee who
will study it for 5 years before going to commissioners for a 10 year vote

why the F are people worried about the Baywalk for that little frontage and worried about the baywalk that would really be of use between 36 ST and 15 ST.

After the event, the tents can house all the bath salt-addicted homeless people who live under the bridge until the site is actually developed.

How about clean the place up and send them packing? Then the communists wouldn’t have anyone to feed and strengthen up to steal stuff anymore would they?

Baywalk should be open year round, not just for rich people.

That would be nice. In the meantime, poor people will walk along Gentings property, “slip and fall”, call 411 Pain, and sue Gentings deep pockets.
…and that is why we can’t have nice things.
