Big Casino Building Projects For Miami

The state of Florida will soon welcome the construction of new casinos in Miami. Malaysian casino giant Genting, bought The Miami Herald building and all of the land around it, including the Omni, and announced plans to build a destination resort that would have 5,100 hotel rooms, 55 restaurants and a casino space larger than anything currently available in Las Vegas. Other companies followed announcing their desire to build in Miami and Miami Beach.

But while legislators and lobbyists have been arguing the merits of expanding casinos and online casino gambling in Florida, groups such as Genting are spending millions and are promising 100,000 new jobs and $1.7 billion a year in new taxes for the state.
