Resorts World Plans Mixed-Use Next To ‘Grand Public Plaza’

New details of the Resorts World proposal to redevelop the Omni transit terminal have been obtained by The Next Miami.

In addition to the new hotel, the company plans to build an adjacent mixed-use facility with retail, food, beverage and entertainment, the documents state.

The development will front a “grand public plaza.” The historic Boulevard Shops currently under renovation will also be integrated.

More details of the new tower have also been revealed:

  • Arquitectonica is the architect
  • The 300-room hotel will be limited service
  • The tower above the station will be 36 stories, with 20 of those floors devoted to condo or service apartments
  • In the new tower, 162,000-square-foot will be hotel, with 229,800 square feet of residential service apartments/condominiums
  • The residential units will average about 918 square feet, while the hotel rooms will be about 350 square feet
  • Total cost estimated at around $200 million

On the remaining Herald land, Resorts World is still planning to build a mixed-use multi-phase resort project, which will include 2 residential towers, a hotel tower, space for shopping, dining and parking components, and an approximately 800-foot Baywalk, according to the documents.

“Resorts World is still planning to build a mixed-use multi-phase resort project” …. a project as in a Casino? The article is not very clear if they are still hoping for that or if they have moved on, either way it will be better than the empty lot that is there today.

It’s always nice to see a tower that isn’t a box. It’s also appropriate for a transit node for whatever option goes to Miami Beach, and should accommodate the streetcar line whenever it’s built. Almost 100 years ago where the Arsht Center is, a turntable for to Miami Avenue and beach existed. Presently, you have talk about a line down said street and Baylink.

I thought that was an open plaza from the rendering the other day. I think it is great and much needed. So two plazas in front of both grand facades of the performing arts center, not bad.

The “Grand Public Plaza” in slide 2 looks like the parking lot in slide 1 but with fewer cars.
