According to a report from the Miami Herald, Genting Group has been trying to obtain permission to build its Resorts World Miami scheme on the 5.65-acre site of the newspaper’s former headquarters overlooking Biscayne Bay since 2013 but its attempts have been continuously hindered by local opposition, planning regulations and an inability to secure the appropriate casino license. The Genting Group’s $350 million purchase of 87 acres once home to the Stardust Resort and Casino from Las Vegas-based Boyd Gaming Corp. will not affect its planned casino project in Miami, said The Miami Beach Convention Center currently has 500,000 square feet of space, the same as what is being proposed in the MDM project.
