Resorts World Miami is in negotiations with the city of Miami to lease submerged land that is publicly owned, with plans to build a marina.
Only part of the submerged land is currently owned by the city of Miami.
Another part of the land was previously owned by the city, but deeded over to FDOT in order to build the MacArthur Causeway. FDOT says that they no longer need the property, and have agreed to deed it back to the city in order to lease it to Resorts World.
Miami commissioners will vote on accepting the deed back from FDOT at a December 14 meeting.
