The developers are already making a move to endear themselves to the city by choosing local architectural and interior firm Arquitectonica to design Resorts World Miami. You may recognize their work from properties like Viceroy Miami, Canyon Ranch Miami Beach and the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas.
As fans of the fast-disappearing newspaper trade, we're sad about losing the Miami Herald sightings that bless each trip over the causeway, but as hotel geeks, we're curious to see what kind of property lands on this prime piece of real estate. (It's worth noting, too, that The Genting Group owns 50 percent of Norwegian Cruise Lines, and the new complex is perfectly positioned to capitalize on that cruise business.)
For hints of what's to come, might we suggest you take a gander at Genter's other big mixed-use extravaganza, Resorts World Sentoas in Singapore.
Miami Herald fans, avert your eyes...
