Resorts World Applies For Construction Permit To Build Surface Parking Lot Across From CMC Office

Resorts World has applied for a permit to build a surface parking lot across from the Omni.

Ugo Colombo’s CMC Group is listed as the contractor. The company has its offices across the street.

Resorts World owns the Checkers restaurant and the land next door.

The pending construction permit appears to only be for the land next to the Checkers. A separate permit for unidentified work on the Checkers property was also submitted last month, but never completed.

Estimated construction cost for the lot is $139,000.

Knowing the City of Miami this parking lot won’t be approved for lack of enough parking.

Remember when these guys were the talk of the town and gonna change the Face of Miami? Almost a decade later we’ve gotten a parking lot. Playing the long game in trying to get the rights to the facility they want to build will be tough and unfortunately the only losers in the situation is the city of Miami, as a huge piece to the urban puzzle falls to the wayside.I’ll hold my breath..

Surface parking lots in urban areas are a huge waste, but I have to assume that this is temporary

I bet this is temporary parking for their construction crew, etc. for the omni transit project.

The only thing what is holding back the development in this area is the Seminoles paying Tallahassee 350 Mio. a year guaranteed(which they just stopped to renegotiate the deal and definitely blocking again any gambling at the Genting site). I admire their business acumen..

Not an excuse, but I’ll give the OP the benefit of the doubt as “is” likely just a simple typo.

No, not a simple typo.. hispanics usually are the ones who get confused on when and how to use the word it, it’s, and is.

What a condescending jackass, talking smack about Hispanics from Miami on a blog about Miami! Lmfaoo… Most of those people speak more languages than you buddy.

Hey Tony, I was born, raised, spent ten years in the United States Army and happen to be in my sixties. Being born and raised in Miami by parents who were born and raised in Florida by parents who were both born and raised in Florida plus each had at least one parent were true indigenous (so-called indians) born natives of this land. I don’t owe you or anybody some kind of idiotic and fake conceived allegiance to hispanics because some of them can speak two languages. Shouting insults at someone because you disagree with their summation just demonstrates how petty and juvenile you are. Unlike an apparent wimp like you, I call things as I see it.

Now go tell Trump that he’s “a condescending jackass, talking smack about Hispanics.”
