Prep Work For New Tower At Resorts World To Begin Within Months

Prep Work For New Tower At Resorts World To Begin Within Months

Resorts World Miami is preparing to begin construction on a new 36-story tower later this year, according to Miami Today.

The project will include a hotel and residential units, along with a new bus terminal for Miami-Dade County. It will replace the current Omni bus terminal.

Construction of a new temporary bus terminal will begin around the fourth quarter of this year, and take six months to complete.

The new tower will include both residential and 300 hotel rooms, as well as bus terminal and retail space. It is estimated to cost $200 million.

The Adrienne Arsht Metromover station will also be renovated and integrated into the project.

A timetable for completion is not yet known.

Love how private investment is refurbishing the Metromover stations.

Wish the county would refurbished government center. Literally next to a state of the art high speed train station and you go public transit looking like caca next to it.

Agree. Gov’t Center is aging.

i still have my doubts this is going to be built….genting wants a major resort …why would they build this….unless they have gotten assurances that the resort will be approved soon

I bet you are one of the people who had doubts that the Flatiron building in Brickell would get built… stop being so pessimistic.

no…never had doubts about flatiron…but i have doubts about a malaysion based gambling empire who builds and manages huge resort properties worldwide and what a singular building that operates as residential and bus depot would benefit them…..unless this is a way to garner some goodwill and move gambling forward somehow….ugo columbo has proven he has ties to miami…genting has none

It doesn’t matter what your doubts, speculations, or theories are. If you are not privy to the financial transactions of the Genting Group and their developmental investments and agreements with the city of Miami, then you are just throwing manure against a wall from different conclusions of yours to see what sticks.

If you sit back and wait, only then you’ll start to understand this entire process.

You make very good points. I have thought the same thing about this area. You now have the Marriott, the new hotel that is being built where Sun Electronics used to be, and now this will be the 3rd hotel all within 2 blocks of where the Genting Casino was proposed. Something tells me that things are happening behind the scenes. I for one am in total support of a Casino and I hope it does get built.

200 M for this sounds a little high, no? like almost double what it should cost? Maybe all that extra cash is going to some special contractors to help them get the next phases approved?

The entire resorts world complex.

This is a joint county/Genting transit oriented development. Genting won the RFP. This isn’t part of a resort.

Beautiful tower. Love Melo and hope they continue building in the area but this area also needs more of these architecturally inspiring towers as well..jives perfectly with the arts scene of the neighborhood

This isn’t part of the Resorts World resort development. This is the joint development with the county to redevelop the Omni bus station and Metro Mover platform with a hotel above it. It’s on county owned land.

Really???

The original Resort World design INCLUDED this lot.

So they were buying this county owned land?

Wow, amazing how so many empty lots are still littered all over downtown, Edgewater, Omni area, even Brickell, while suburbs are brimming with life.
Shame to see what happened to the American city. The Automobile Formula: Abandon city centers, build highways to move people further away and make them slaves to depend on a car and completely devoted to exist with parking spaces.

You should not look at them as empty lots. You should Look at them as “blank canvases” and pray Mana or Arquitectonica doesn’t get their hands on them.

Stop wining so much about the automobile. It has been the backbone of America and the rest of the world for hundreds of years, and will continue to be, because most people prefer individuality, and mobility at will, where and when they need it. I’m not discounting mass transit, because it does serve a purpose, just not for the majority.

The first American Automobile was invented in Hinsdale, New Hampshire by Mr. George A. Long in 1875.
Long’s second and only patented automobile, the “Steam Road Vehicle”, was patented by the U.S.P.O (number: 281,091) on July 10, 1883. It is the oldest, self-propelled vehicle that resides in the Smithsonian’s collection.

Slaves to depend on a car?
My car gives me freedom.
Public transportation forces me to smell things I don’t want to smell. Public transportation forces me to listen to jackasses play loud music on cell phones that I don’t want to hear. Public transportation forces me to go only where some central planner decides it should go, it does not have leather seats with lumbar support, excellent A/C, ample storage for things, and flexibility to turn around quick if I forgot something.

The moral superiority of nitwits who feel everyone should stand around for a train that may or may not show up on time is disgusting.

If you want to ride the train, that’s cool. Because I choose to drive a car does not make me a slave.

Love this! Sorely needed that bus station is decrepid and this would improve the quality of life for those stopping through there.

6 months just for a temp bus shelter that will be torn down again ?

The county put out an RFP because it needed a new station.

Doesn’t matter in this case since it isn’t their property. It’s county owned land which they put an RFP out for this lot.

Just highlighting that this lot was included in the original design. Therefore the space needed for what they originally wanted got smaller.

Looks pretty different from the curvy sensuous drawings of buildings that they originally released a few years ago. Bait and switch?
