Genting Presents A Whole New Plan For The Miami Herald Site - Curbed Miami

Stashed in: Florida!

Genting has an entirely new plan for their Resorts World Miami megaproject at the Miami Herald Site (according to the Miami Herald) and, guess what, there isn't a gargantuan city-gobbling casino in site. In fact, it's all about parks (yes, parks), and view corridors, and a wide, luxurious baywalk, and even - gasp! - historic preservation.

Why parks?

To encourage a healthy lifestyle?

Anyway, this sounds pretty cool:  To help activate the waterfront, Genting is pledging to build a 50-foot wide promenade in a tiered design with three or four restaurants overlooking Biscayne Bay. Pedestrians will be able to connect from the Genting project under the Interstate-395 overpass to the new Museum Park via a boardwalk that Genting plans to build out into the bay.

That does sound pretty cool. Especially for a Florida project.

We'll take WhateverTF we can get.
