Resorts World Wants Street Permanently Closed

Resorts World Miami LLC and Miami-Dade County have requested the City of Miami close and vacate NE 14th Terrace.

The 12,600 square feet of roadway would be incorporated into a new and expanded bus terminal, being developed by Resorts World.

In April 2017, Miami-Dade awarded Resorts World the rights to redevelop the Omni transit terminal. Above the new air conditioned bus station and retail space will be a 36-story with hotel and residences.

Since the award, Resorts World has been moving through the approval process, including replatting of the properties.

City of Miami planning staff are recommending that commissioners approve the street closure. The Miami Planning, Zoning and Appeals Board will review the proposal on June 6.

This is one of the kinds of developments that the Arts center will benefit from.

Does this mean that they have given up on their Casino idea or that they are getting closer to getting it passed? Either way I hope they are given the permission they are asking for, this area needs to be developed.

The historic Shrine Building would make a great Baylink streetcar terminal. It’s no James Farley Post Office/Penn Station in NYC, but still would be a fantastic adaptive reuse.

Close more streets in Miami! Build more condos. Overcrowd without infrastructure! Yes, Miami is world class like NYC, London or Tokyo. Brilliant place!! Great jobs! All the big companies can’t wait to locate here to this progressive city!!

This whole area needs a revamp and a revitalization…place is a Hobo dump – hopefully this closure will allow this mixed-use project to bring vitality to an area in dire need of it. That road was a great parking spot though!
