Miami does seem to be where the most interest in continued development in the Uniited States is right now.
Things are happening fast in Miami. The FAA can easily give Genting a waiver from those height restrictions due to the already tall building envelope (800ft) that this development sits in...

Casino bill appears headed for House defeat

The bill to bring three resort casinos to Florida may have to wait until next year to pass because sponsors don’t appear to have mustered enough votes to get it out of a crucial House committee.
By Mary Ellen Klas


TALLAHASSEE -- A bill that could bring three mega resort casinos to South Florida appeared doomed in the House Thursday, as backers struggled to cobble together a minimum eight-vote majority on the committee that will consider the controversial legislation on Friday.

If the bill fails to get out of the committee, it “is dead,’’ said Rep. Erik Fresen, R-Miami, the bill’s House sponsor in the House, leaving casino supporters to have to wait until next year to get it approved by the Legislature.

As lawmakers met in an eight-hour floor session on Thursday, Fresen spent the time button-holing members of the Business and Consumer Affairs Subcommittee, which will hear the bill for the first time Friday.

“I actually don’t think the policy of this is as huge as the politics of it,” Fresen said. “Do the politics outweigh the policy? Maybe. I’ll know what’s going to happen on Friday.”

As proponents counted the votes Thursday, the anxiety among lawmakers was palpable. Lobbyists on both sides kept a constant count, comparing notes after they met with committee members, many of whom refused to publicly commit. Throughout the day the count swung from 8 to 7 in favor of the bill, to 8 to 7 against it.

Unlike nearly every controversial bill that has moved through the House, the chamber’s Republican leaders have not taken a caucus position and are allowing members to vote as they please, leaving many members unsettled. Adding to the anxiety is the fact that the House redistricting maps have pitted at least 38 legislators into districts with another incumbent forcing them into uncertain terrain come November.

Fresen’s challenge has been to persuade committee members of the that by allowing three bids for the $2 billion resort casinos, South Florida’s economy will be helped, the state’s revenue stream will rise, and other areas of the state will not be harmed.

“It’s a double-edged sword -- the fact that it’s almost a local bill,’’ he said. “On the positive side, you can make the case that it’s only Miami Dade and Broward, it’s never going to come to your backyard. On the other side, it’s ... why should I step up to the plate and get hit for something that’s only for Miami Dade and Broward?’’

The bill is being heavily lobbied on both sides. Out-of-state casino developers, led by the Maylasian-based Genting Resorts World, the Las Vegas Sands, Wynn Resorts and Caesar’s International have pumped more than $1 million into legislative campaign coffers in the last three months.

Genting was the first to lay claim to a potential site for its resort and convention center complex when it purchased the Miami Herald property last May.

On the other side is a coalition of business groups, led by Orlando-based Disney World. They are quietly being helped by the Seminole Tribe and the South Florida pari-mutuels, who fear the potential competition from resort casinos.

Fresen said he doesn’t believe the issue will become a campaign issue next year, “but I do believe that the monied interests that are against this bill will convince people that it will be.”

He has heard the promises, he said. “Those that are for it have told me: ‘On the campaign, we’ll make you look great. We’ll make you look like a job creator.’’’

Genting has hinted they might build anyway if the market in Miami is strong enough but without gambling, this project could be vastly scaled back while they wait for the state to get their act together. They are up against some very entrenched interests though.

Historic status for Herald building could block Genting demolition plans



Quote:
Genting Group’s plans for a new casino resort on the site of the Miami Herald building in downtown Miami could face a new obstacle now that the City of Miami has been asked for the site to be listed as a historic landmark, the Miami Herald reported. The Dade Heritage Trust, in partnership with the University of Florida’s Historic Preservation Program, submitted the application this week. The Trust wants to preserve the 49-year-old Herald building’s Miami Modern architecture. “You can’t take decades of Miami history and wipe it clean in the blink of an eye,” said Dade Heritage Trust CEO Becky Roper Matkov. “We undersand that they have to do something useful with the building, but we just think it has a lot of potential if you’re creative in how you reuse it.” If accepted as a landmark, no significant alteration could be made to the building – purchased from McClatchy for $236 million in 2011 – that Genting was scheduled to demolish to make way for a 500-room resort and casino.
I don't get it. WTF is so "historic" about this piece of crap?

I like that building, but I don't care if it's demolished.

This is from Malaysian's news.

Source

Genting, through Genting Malaysia Bhd, which had acquired 13.9 acres of prime freehold waterfront property in downtown Miami for US$236mil in May 2011, was forced to scale back on plans for a US$3.8bil mixed development project after Florida state legislators had second thoughts on a bill to liberalise gambling earlier in the year.

From 5200 rooms to less than 500 rooms...And no more Casino !!
what a shame MIAMI !!


Source

Speaking publicly for the first time since the legislative defeat, Genting executives told the Miami Herald they remain committed to Miami and are slowly moving forward with a plan that could be presented to the city later this year or early next. Preliminary plans call for a luxury hotel with fewer than 500 rooms -- about one tenth of its original proposal -- plus two condo towers. The total space devoted to restaurants and boutiques would be no more than 100,000 square feet, or about the size of a small department store.
