Do you remember hearing news the Resorts World Miami would soon begin building on the former Miami Herald site? Even though the hopes of a casino coming to Miami has been put on hold they are moving forward with their $3 billion plans that include a new design.

The revised design of 13.9-acre site will include a 5-start hotel, condominiums, waterfront restaurants and related amenities. According to the co-founder of the architecture firm that is creating the new design, the purpose of the redesign is to “bring to life one of Miamibs most underutilized pieces of waterfront land after decades of inactivity.” The new design will transform the site which has long been viewed as “dilapidated” and “inaccessible” into a pedestrian-friendly focal point of downtown. Additional plans for the design include an 800 foot-long, 50 foot-wide waterfront promenade with a view corridor and landscaped green space, as well as preserved vistas between the Omni district and Biscayne Bay.
