This Is The Layout For A Three Tower Project At Resorts World Miami

Resorts World Miami is planning a semicircular layout for a three-tower project at the former Miami Herald site, a document obtained by The Next Miami shows.

The document was submitted in January 2017 to obtain FAA approval. All the three towers were approved by the FAA in June at an identical height of 649-feet above sea level.

It is the same site layout that was used by the developer in 2013 to obtain FAA approval (which expired). At the time, Arquitectonica was announced as the architect.

Two of the towers will be residential, with the third planned as a hotel, according to documents submitted to the county earlier this year. There will also be shopping and dining, and an 800-foot baywalk.

why don’t they connect the three towers on the roof like the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore?

At least the plans appear to show some decent curves. The towers will offer great multidirectional bay views.

Ripoffs of their “supertrees” are already proposed. We don’t want to ripoff Singapore any further, save for their great economic policies and zero tolerance for litterbugs and vandals.

So once again a beautiful and modern project gets scrapped. I am willing to bet anything that these 3 towers will be nothing but boring boxes, same old same old…

Obviously, they will be 3 boring boxes with balconies in different angles. What else is new?

We are wasting one of Miami’s best parcels on more coma inducing grey boxes.

What’s with the oil derrick in the bay?

The derrick is gone.. the platform remains. Perhaps they’ll use it as a big high dive tourist attraction like they used to do at the Steel Pier in Atlantic City. lolol

I hope that less than 100 re-designs lie ahead, before that chunk of land gets sold to a real developer.

Yeah…there are people who are concerned about the impact casinos will have on the residents in Miami…the same people who turn their noses up at the homeless in Miami and want the city government and police to do something about them, anything, just get them out their sight…you know, “those concerned people.”

Those two positions don’t always go together.
It’s not just the location of the casino, it’s also that they tend to suck money out of a community and create low paying jobs.
And I’m volunteering at Camillus House which does a lot to help the homeless survive and reintegrate into the community.
Side note, my sister in law is a cashier at a casino in Des Moines. She needs two knee replacements which she can’t afford. She must stand the whole shift, they won’t allow her to sit on a high stool. Maybe Florida casino workers are treated better, but it would surprise me.

I don’t get your point… A tower condo wouldn’t provide better jobs. Jobs are jobs. Nobody expects a non-professional person working in a casino to make a killing.

@ B Dub

I see you’re doing something that most so-called “Christians” don’t and won’t adhere to and practice that’s their biblical principals. But I see you’re not one of the many who are talking out of one side of their mouth and doing something else totally different. You help the homeless at the Camillus House. But remember, casinos didn’t make these people homeless or create the homeless problem in Miami we see today…ergo, no casinos “sucked” money out of any community and created “low paying jobs” in Miami and you’re still volunteering your time to help the destitute of Miami. That means you’re bashing the wrong entity. You’re example of the predicament of your sister in law is touching, but I don’t see how it’s the casino where she work’s fault that her knees are bad. Remember, she chose to work there.

please get us elevation or renderings. It would be nice to know exactly what they are planning. At least it looks like they are not after the casino idea for now.
