Resorts World Miami is the name of a major 13.9-acre (5.6-hectare) development proposed for the Omni District of Greater Downtown Miami, Florida, USA, by the Malaysian based Genting Group. At 10,000,000 square feet (930,000 m2) and with an estimated cost of US$3.1 billion, it is considered one of the largest developments in the history of the state. The plan, which includes a large eight story podium and several stylized skyscrapers, is proposed for several lots recently purchased by Genting, including the site of the Miami Herald and El Nuevo Herald headquarters building, which were demolished, and the adjacent Omni International Mall. It will contain bars and nightclubs, a luxury galleria consisting of vast amounts of retail, entertainment and convention space as well as other unique amenities, including one of the largest swimming pools in the world. [1] Two condominium towers will also have 1000 units.[2]
