Resorts World Miami Gets Approval For Three 649-Foot Towers At Former Herald Property (Again)

Resorts World Miami has been granted FAA approval to build three new towers at the former Miami Herald property that fronts Biscayne Bay.

This is the second time that Resorts World has been granted approval for the towers. The first approval was issued by the FAA in 2017, but expired in August 2020.

The new approval was applied for on February 11 and was granted on May 13.

The three towers would range between 642 and 645 feet above ground, or around 60 stories each. All would top out at 649 feet above sea level, the filing states.

Resorts World has not yet applied for approval from Miami’s Planning Department to build the three towers.

Resorts World has separately filed plans with the county 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:

Yes! Been wanting this project to be a reality since day 1. Hopefully with the casino bill (if passed), will better ensure this project.

Lets see.. you don’t want young people drinking and partying on the beach in your clubs, and you don’t want, like you say, “a bunch of old folks spending their social security on the slots.”

Okay folks.. go downtown and catch a ride on the Ferris Wheel, visit the museums, go sit or walk in the parks, and take a chance getting E-coli from eating in one these restaurants. And you all keep doing this week after week, month after month, year after year, etc, etc, etc… yawnnnnnn…..

Isn’t all that so exciting!

If old folks want to spend their social security checks there, they should be allowed to do so. Not much difference in spending there or the theater, or sports event. ITS THEIR MONEY! You are a control freak. BTW, our existing casinos are crappy, but only because people like you scare the legislature into allowing full-fledged Las Vegas style resort casinos. And please dont give me the Atlantic City bull. If it works so well in Vegas, it will be twice as good in the Magic City. Vegas us in the middle is nowhere, and millions go there to gamble and be entertained. We gave better weather, beautiful beaches and great vibe. We will do much better. The only thing Miami is missing is better educated people. Sadly, we are jam-packed with ignorant fools like you.

So you believe the fantasy that GAMBLING is the element that has been missing that will make Miami a great city? It will add thousands of HIGH-PAYING JOBS and, somehow, attract more EDUCATED people? How much crack are you smoking? Either you’re a degenerate gambler who spends all their time at the Hard Rock or you’re actually a lobbyist for Soffer.
And just to remind you, the voters of Florida voted overwhelmingly (70%) that any expansion in gaming be put up for a vote….that means plenty of Republicans voted for that amendment (not just Dems). There are plenty of places to gamble in South Florida….have fun at Miccosukee!

“There are plenty of places to gamble in South Florida….”

So how has people who go to casinos and casinos in general negatively affected your life?

Where did I say anything about GAMBLING being the element that will make Miami a great city. Where do I mention jobs? Educated people will come here because of casinos? Now who is the crack head? How can you read my comment and reach those assumptions?

1. I don’t gamble. I’ve worked to hard for my money to gamble it away. I don’t even play the lotto.

2. I did so much coke in the 70s that I no longer care for any of that shit. Been there, done that, probably before you were even born.

3. Only ignorant, narrow minded people try to stop others from doing what they have a right to do. If you don’t like casinos, THEN DO GO TO THEM! Why must you try and stop others from going? How will casinos HURT YOU PERSONALLY? Is it a sin thing? Religious reasons? Miami will become “Sin City South”? What is the real reason behind your gripe Bill?

IF YOU DON’T WANT TO HAVE AN ABORTION…DON’T HAVE ONE. IT’S YOUR CHOICE. STOPPING OTHERS?…NOT YOUR BUSINESS.

I believe they are gearing up to do something, they wouldn’t agree to build transit to Miami Beach for nothing. They are waiting on this bill to pass before they go public with what they are going to do. This project was never held back by they city but by the laws in Florida allowing the Seminole tribe to monopolize gambling in Florida!

It’s impossible to remodel into something useful. Tear it down and start anew with something interacting better with the street.

New electronic billboards installed next to Genting property. On the bay and right next to 395. Who approves these things?? When they finish the signature bridge I guess it will just be lined with billboards the way things are going.
