Resorts World Miami Resubmits Plans For Three Towers At 649 Feet

Resorts World Miami is planning three new towers in the 60-story range, according to a filing with the Federal Aviation Administration on February 11.

The new towers would be built at the waterfront 1 Herald Plaza property that was formerly owned by the Miami Herald.

The three towers would range between 642 and 645 feet above ground. All would top out at 649 feet above sea level, the filing states.

This isn’t the first time that Resorts World submitted plans to the FAA for the property.

In 2017, the company filed plans for three towers on the same property, at heights identical to the current application. The 2017 approval expired in August 2020, however.

Resorts World has also filed plans to build a 580-foot tower at the Omni bus terminal.

At the Herald property, the company is also planning a baywalk and marina.

 

Baywalk planned at 1 Herald Plaza:

Baywalk should already be open to the public on that site. It should have triggered the requirement when they poured acres of concrete slabs – a site improvement.

The original designs were outstanding.
I hope new ones don’t settle for cigarette box shape buildings with galavanting balconies

Yeah really, you nailed it. Seems like that is the new Miami standard. It was cute on a couple of buildings but…

Since they can’t get a Casino, we’ll get basic box buildings just to fill space…. I feel a very underwhelming design coming

Lol Skyrise news yesterday, Resort Worlds today. What’s in store tomorrow? Mana, Okan, or Marriot Convention? I hope these projects are real, but I’m not holding my breath until at least a building permit is filed.

here we go again…. i live across the street at the venetia and face this property…i find it impossible to believe Genting will put a shovel in the ground without a casino being part of it.I would imagine this is to have approvals in place to appeal to a potential buyer.

instead of three 600 ft towers, how about two 900 ft towers and save the space from the third tower for a park or similar to help absorb rainwater and have trees.

What ever happened to their plan to redevelop the Omni/Arsht Center bus loop & build a condo tower on top? Genting is just a land speculator.

Maybe an involuntary land speculator. After all they did try to get a casino license. Cheers.

They willingly took on an uphill challenge of using legal loopholes to build their casino and their house of cards collapsed on them. So maybe that is “involuntary” speculation/land banking, but it’s not a good faith attempt at development either way you look at it.

I still can’t believe Miami doesn’t have a Las Vegas caliber casino. I do understand why some people don’t want it in downtown. Can you imagine the traffic along with all these new buildings going up with thousands upon thousands of people moving in? Maybe somewhere else in the county perhaps.

Miami isn’t lacking in gambling options. We have Casino Miami, Magic City, Hialeah, and Miccosukee already. If you need another, there’s Gulfstream just across the county line in Broward, and if you need the mega-splashy multi-billion dollar resort thing, Hard Rock isn’t much farther.

Casinos thrive off the money from losers and the house almost always wins.

No new motorboat slips are allowed on Biscayne Bay. That means that they are going to look to assignments of existing slip use rights for the marina.

Anonymous

That’s some BS when and why did they do that?

Anonymous

It’s been like that for years. Not sure if it is a DERM or DEP restriction but no new motorboat slips in marinas on Biscayne bay. Rumor has it that Genting backed City of Miami lawsuits against brickell marinas seeking condemnation for damages related to Wilma and then would take the motor boat slip use assignments. The marina associations fought back at Tally and kept their rights, for now.

The Malaysians thought they could come here and run the show and they can’t even build marinas much less casinos lol. The only one who has benefited from the herald transaction is jorge perez who flipped land to them to bail himself out of the 2008 bust.

Serious question: if a cruise ship has an area (smaller sq footage than the guest rooms, smaller than the retail/restaurant area) where slot machines and table games exist, do you still call it a cruise ship?
Or do you call it a casino?

Anonymous

You would correctly say that the ship has an onboard casino.

Anonymous

Just like you wouldn’t say the ship is a water slide simply because it has a water slide. The point you’re maybe trying to make is that this project is more than just a casino, so it shouldn’t just be called a casino. But tell that to Genting and they’ll build the other stuff.

The project isn’t moving forward *because* they can’t operate the casino component. So in this instance, the casino is the critical component. As far as I know, nobody waits to build a cruise ship until they get their gambling license.

until they get a casino approved, there wont be any development taking place. Since the casino idea likely wont get approved, i see a flip in the future.
