Genting unveils plan for Miami bayfront resort
BY ELAINE WALKER
MIAMIHERALD.COM

http://www.miamiherald.com/2011/09/1...for-miami.html

Plans for Genting Group’s new bayside resort in Miami include 5,200 hotel rooms, 50 restaurants and bars, 60 luxury shops and massive convention and ballroom space. It is being called one of Florida’s largest projects ever.

Imagine swimming from Biscayne Boulevard to Biscayne Bay where The Miami Herald now sits.
A 3.6-acre outdoor lagoon — equivalent to 12 Olympic-size swimming pools and surrounded by natural sand beaches — is the centerpiece of the $3 billion master plan unveiled Wednesday by the Genting Group for Resorts World Miami.
The massive 10 million-square-foot mixed-use development that draws its inspiration from the region’s coral reefs is unlike anything South Florida has seen before in terms of sheer magnitude and design. With plans for four hotels, two condominium towers, more than 50 restaurants and bars and a luxury retail shopping mall, it’s being billed as one of the largest projects in Florida history. And that’s without the casino Genting hopes to be able to include in the project.
“This will put Miami on the map and make it a destination,” said Bernardo Fort-Brescia, co-founder of Arquitectonica, which is designing the project. “Miami has not seen resorts of this importance, Orlando has and maybe Las Vegas. This will make Miami more than competitive. It will have an advantage.”
Resorts World Miami’s four hotel towers with more than 5,200 rooms would increase Miami-Dade County’s hotel room inventory by just over 10 percent and give large groups a reason to come to Miami for events that could be held in the property’s convention and meeting space. The project’s largest hotel would have about 2,000 rooms, making it about 25 percent bigger than the Fontainebleau Miami Beach, currently the largest hotel in the market. The second and third largest hotels would be just slightly smaller than Fontainebleau.

Looks absolutely massive, and will definitely be iconic. Although I don't fancy the side profile of the shorter, fat towers much.

Quite the proposal. This is like a pre-bust proposal. How tall will it be?

So far all we know is 65 Floors, and I'm not sure if that includes the 8 story podium.

Breathtaking, and refreshing. Miami has deserved something of this caliber for over a decade.

Miami is emerging into a word-class city. It's already probably the most international US city after NY, LA, SF and DC.

I'm not huge on twisty modern design but I think this is absofruitly incredible! I'm especially envious of the HUGE vertical mall podium. Congrats Miami!

Based on a cursory floor count, It appears that we're looking at 65 floors plus the 8 floor podium. So I'm thinking this puppy could be around 900 ft. Maybe a little more as those podium floors look pretty tall.

Cool design

The area that it's in has a height limit of 649ft due to the airplane fight paths to MIA.

We can only hope for an amendment to the restriction.
