Genting’s $1B+ Resorts World Miami Site – Downtown Miami

Genting’s $1B+ Resorts World Miami Site – Downtown Miami

After months of speculation, since it was first listed on the market in November 2022, the former Miami Herald site along Biscayne Bay has been sold. The Genting Group sold the waterfront site next to the Adrienne Arsht Center to SmartCity Miami LLC, an affiliate of David Martin’s Terra Group. 

Priced at $1.225 billion, this will be one of the highest prices paid for real estate in South Florida. Genting originally acquired the property for $236 million in 2011, recording quite a markup. With the deal expected to close later this year, this also represents a massive redevelopment opportunity for the Terra Group.

The 15.5-acre Downtown parcel, inclusive of the former Miami Herald site, comes fronting 800 linear feet of bay waters, with air rights to build on county property above a county bus depot lot. Included in Miami Dade County’s new Rapid Transit Zone zoning scheme, the site offers unlimited buildable square footage with no setbacks and a potential density of up to 7,750 residential units.

Listed as BayCity Miami, Genting is still holding onto the 10 acres it owns west of Biscayne Boulevard.
