After months of silence, there was finally some hustle from developers at Resorts World Miami. Ritz-Carlton Residences went ahead to add another power-packed amenity to their list, while Aston Martin sealed the deal on becoming Miami’s second tallest. Read in-depth about these and more below:

Proposals


Resorts World MiamiArts and Entertainment District

After months of quiet, Resorts World Miami finally broke the silence with a request to the City for a lease on off-shore land for its marina. The submerged land is jointly owned by City of Miami and the Florida Department of Transportation. Developers announced their plans of building a 50-slip, mega-yacht harbor last year. The multimillion dollar, mixed-use project will also feature two residential towers, a hotel, retail, parking and an 800 ft. baywalk. Plans for its casino component have made no headway as yet.
