Resorts World Has Taken Over Operations At A Miami Casino

Executives from Genting’s Resorts World have taken over operations at the Gulfstream Park casino in Hallandale Beach, according to the Herald.

Genting is trying to have those casino operations moved to downtown Miami.

Last April, an affiliate of Genting signed a lease with Gulfstream Park Thoroughbred Aftercare Retirement Program, Inc. for space at the Omni, which could allow for gambling at the site.

Resorts World has filed a lawsuit against Miami-Dade seeking a declaratory judgement that would clarify the legal rights of Gulfstream to operate at the Omni. The lawsuit remains pending.

While I don’t support Gambling in any form, I do understand it is going on everyday in Miami. Magic City Casino, Jaialai… Hard Rock.. Gulf stream..>The list goes on. Might as well make it a destination within our city instead of an isolated entertainment venue. This would draw additional visitors to our city core from other parts.

Genting’s Resorts World has the recourses to wait for the right time to bring casinos to downtown.

I am all for this project, I do not gamble but I enjoy going to Hard Rock in Hollywood and Gulfstream in Hallandale. Being able to take the Metromover to something like these two would be great!

Genting needs to relax, no gambling in Miami urban core, only brings low life’s and degenerates. You want to gamble, drive to Hard Rock, we certainly don’t need any help with tourism here either… This is not a desert.

Would you want to live in those cities or visit them any longer than a weekend?

There is no comparison of Miami to Atlantic City or Vegas.

How about Paris, France, Monocco, Basel, Switzerland or any of a number of large cities that have gaming and do it well enough that it not any cities focus.

Putting a gaming floor the size of a small Publix in a 10 acre project will go unnoticed. The low lifes and miscreants won’t gamble here, they probably wouldn’t even pay the cost for the valet parking. They will go where they have always gone. They people that will gamble here are the Cardiologists holed up in the Resort for a weeklong conference.
With a marina, large amounts of conference space, ball room space 250,000 sq ft of retail, and over 4,000 residential/hotel units, I know why competitors do not want to see brand new competition, but it isn’t gambling that is their TRUE problem.

The impact of casinos on neighboring property values is “unambiguously negative,” according to the economists at the National Association of Realtors. Casinos don’t encourage non-gaming businesses to open nearby, because the people who most often visit casinos do not wander out to visit other shops and businesses. A casino is not like a movie theater or a sports stadium, offering a time-limited amusement. It is designed to be an all-absorbing environment that does not release its customers until they have exhausted their money.

So many dopey people with opinions on this.
Look at the project and understand it. There is more than 10 acres of land, and most of the building goes vertical.
The square footage of the retail, meeting space, ballroom, hotel, condo, swimming pool deck, spa/amenities, are ALL LARGER INDIVIDUALLY than the casino floor.

It is a Destination Resort, yes. It will attract weddings, conferences, meetings, symposiums, etc. that will import dollars to our city. For the last decade of dopey people whining, no new dollars have been imported, and some homeless guy had his face eaten off because there weren’t any good restaurant options within 3 blocks.
