Resorts World Miami A Step Closer To Beginning Work On Omni Terminal Redevelopment, Which Includes 36-Story Tower

A plan by Resorts World Miami to redevelop the Omni Terminal is one step closer, after paperwork was recorded earlier this month paving the way for work to begin.

A Unity of Title document was recorded with the county, allowing for the property to be developed as a single site, and for Northeast 14th Terrace to be vacated. The paperwork had actually been signed at the beginning of the year, but not recorded until this month.

Resorts World will build a temporary bus terminal nearby during construction. Records show a construction permit pending at 265 Northeast 16 Street, on company-owned property.

At the Omni terminal, the project will include a 36-story tower at a cost of $200 million, with hotel and residential units. The Metromover station will be renovated and integrated, along with a new air-conditioned bus terminal and retail space.

This will improve the quality of life for residents taking public transportation and it’s a great looking project as well!

Don’t throw stones on glass houses! Many of these “bums” have mental, drug problems and have fallen thru the system. A little bit of sympathy, and caring will go a long way. Also, remember that 40% of Americans cannot handle a $400 dollar emergency, and many are a paycheck away from the streets.

Obviously you don’t follow the news. It’s been all over the media that 40% of Americans cannot handle a $400 emergency.

Any sort of baylink should have a provision built as part of this new terminal but Miami BCC leaders lack any vision and thus nothing will be done.

Baylink should be tied to Mia central. We don’t need a bunch of hubs for for each individual method of transportation.

Geriatric Gimenez will call this Baylink when it’s completed.

Notice how quickly private companies move transit work along – vs – politicians as the case with the county with forever unresolved issues with Amtrak at the MIC station at airport.

Genting people checking out their Herald site and thinking… Hmmmm… how can we improve the value of this property so we can dump it later ? I know… let’s fix up the bus station and profit from that as well as the increased value of Herald.

What’s do with that Resorts World Casino on the former Miami Herald site? There hasn’t been any news about the massive $ 3 billion casino in years. Florida now allows gambling. So what is do with that? What’s the story?

How much did they pay for the property they acquired from the closure of NE 14 St?

I think it’s actually NE 14th Terrace they are closing. It’s a narrow one block street that’s rarely used.

it’s a good alternative route to the surrounding streets, It also has a fair number of parking places. Adding the property to the project likely added to the allowable square footage of the building allowing the developer more sellable/rentable space. This is real estate that has value that the city should be compensated for.
