But this box looks far better than the proposed towers. I'm always for new skyscrapers but not if they are as hideous as these

The box is ugly, and so is the new complex. There is nothing to loose. Build it!

For Miami, it's absolutely no loss. I'll be so happy when it's gone... for once!

I just say break the law and build it all. Small minded buffoons should not get in the way of a great project. Small mindedness is why America is in decline.

Miami needs a great landmark. I swear half of its builings are copy/pasted green glass condos. This one would have been perfect...

Genting Will Not Open A Casino In The Omni For A Decade

Quote:
The Greater Miami Chamber Of Commerce has announced that they have signed a contract to stay at the former Omni International Mall for ten years because - brace yourself Miami - they have been informed by Genting that the megaresort developer will not be building a casino within the Omni's fortress-like walls for ten years, according to the South Florida Business Journal. This is, it is safe to presume, whether gambling is actually legalized sooner than that or not, and it's like the total exact opposite of the company's original plan, which was basically to throw a casino inside the empty mall as soon as fricken possible after purchasing the place.

Meanwhile, they're still totally on for their new, casino-free, luxury hotel and pair of condo towers on the former bay front Miami Herald site a block away.

FAA is studying Resorts World's amended 3 tower plan. While the towers are within the zoning boundaries, anything over 227 ft. must be reviewed by the FAA.

Genting Leases Offices For Resorts World Activity

Quote:
MIAMI—Genting Group is the latest major multinational corporation to take down office space in Downtown Miami. Omni Offices will serve as the headquarters for Resorts World Bimini and Resorts World Miami.

The office, which accounts for net positive absorption in Downtown Miami, becomes the submarket’s largest new occupancy to take shape in 2013. All told, about 150 people are employed in the Resorts World offices.

“Beyond creating new jobs and positive absorption for the Downtown Miami market, the debut of the Resorts World Bimini and Resorts World Miami offices send a clear signal to the community that Genting is committed to rehabilitating the Omni Center and advancing the ongoing revival of the Arts and Entertainment District,” says Hurwitz. Resorts World Bimini and Resorts World Miami join the Miami International University of Art & Design, the U.S. State Department, and the U.S. Diplomatic Security and Passport Agency as the property’s largest tenants.

Just in case anyone thinks Resorts World is not a serious development, this office speaks otherwise.

You can thank the ultraconservative, Disney-controlled Florida State Legislature for this:

Genting Could Ditch Mega Casino Plans for Minor Casino



Quote:
The Miami Herald reports that Malaysian resort conglomerate Genting Group might be willing to scale back plans to build the world's largest casino in Miami on the site of the newspaper's former headquarters if it can at least have a resort with slot machines, and little else. Under the proposal, Genting would form a four-way partnership that would allow it to use a permit owned by Gulfstream Park racetrack to open a casino with 2,000 slot machines and off-track betting, with the proceeds going to thoroughbred purses at Gulfstream's racetrack and to a non-profit for Florida horse breeders, trainers and owners. What would originally have been a large destination casino meant to attract high rollers and big money, would now be a much less bodacious slots hall similar to Genting's outfit at the Aquaduct racetrack in New York.

Apparently, only a tiny portion of revenue would be kept by Genting and Gulfstream for administration.

That said, Genting is undeterred with the rest:

Genting Moves Forward With Condo Towers, Hotel At One Herald Plaza

Quote:
TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami/NSF) — Gambling operator Resorts World Omni has struck a deal with Gulfstream Park in the hope of getting slot machines rolling at a downtown Miami property.

The proposal is a dramatically scaled-back version of the glamorous casino resort once pitched to — and rejected by — Florida lawmakers, and it hinges on a controversial permit at the horse track.

The agreement between Resorts World, a division of Malaysia-based Genting Group, and Gulfstream, along with breeders and thoroughbred horse owners and trainers, involves relocating a permit to the Miami bayfront property purchased by Genting in 2011 for $236 million.

Backers of the deal are hoping lawmakers will sign off on the plan, which they contend would be a major boon for the horse-racing industry in Florida, as the Legislature undertakes a sweeping review of gambling during the 2014 session.

Genting seeking development ally for bayfront hotel and condo project

Quote:
On the morning of April 28, a demolition crew knocked down the south wall of the former Miami Herald headquarters for its owner, Genting Group. A giant cloud of dust settled, then nothing more. The work essentially stopped.

City of Miami building director Peter Iglesias suspended the demolition, objecting that the demolition firm, BG Group of Boca Raton, was operating in an unsafe manner that endangered construction workers — an opinion that BG disputes. “They were weakening the columns and putting cables on them and pulling,’’ Iglesias said. “How do you do that with construction workers there? It’s too dangerous.’’

While the demolition resumed about two weeks later, employing a different top-to-bottom approach that the city deemed acceptable, the recent obstacle is emblematic of a string of missteps that have punctuated the cash-rich resort giant’s foray into South Florida.

Genting keeps hitting walls, even as it pursues scaled-back plans for a hotel condo and retail complex on the 14-acre waterfront site at One Herald Plaza.

Now, Genting is considering hitching its star to South Florida’s most prolific developer: Jorge M. Pérez. In an interview, Pérez, chairman and CEO of the Related Group of Florida, told the Miami Herald he was contacted in recent days by a senior Genting official and had preliminary discussions about the possibility of developing the Miami Herald site together.

“They called me to see if I’m interested in maybe developing together,’’ said Pérez, who is currently leading a condominium construction boom in Miami. Pérez said the high-level Genting official, whom he wouldn’t name, told him he would follow up when he was in Miami.

“We’ll probably talk again.’’ Pérez added: “It’s a great site.’’

While the talks between Genting and Related are very preliminary, an eventual alliance could give Genting local development expertise and market savvy to navigate Miami.

Genting’s bids to change Florida law to allow full-fledged casino gambling at the Miami Herald site have failed to date despite heavy lobbying. Plans for gambling there have been thwarted at every turn, most recently in March when state regulators denied a more modest proposal to team up with Gulfstream Racetrack to use the racetrack’s authority to operate slot machines on the waterfront site. The state said Gulfstream couldn’t move its permit to Miami-Dade County from Broward under state law.

I can't believe that piece of crap box was considered a potential landmark in Miami while New York is planning to topple true architectural gems like the Roosevelt for more boxes

Can't wait to see the new towers rise

With a casino seemingly out of reach, Genting and David Beckham reps are in talks about building a soccer stadium at the site: http://www.exmiami.org/index.php/bec...cord-in-miami/

Quote:
Commissioner Marc Sarnoff told Local 10 last week that representatives for David Beckham have had two meetings with Genting to negotiate a stadium on the former Miami Herald site.

Over the weekend, 73,429 people attended a soccer match in Miami, breaking a record for the state of Florida.

Genting paid $236 million for the land, so the stadium would have to be part of a larger project on the site for any deal to make sense. Earlier this year, Genting approached Related Group about developing the site.

If they strike a deal, expect a MASSIVE redesign for this project...
