The Real Deal Miami

Genting Miami casino would be bigger than those in Las Vegas

The casino proposed by Malaysian firm Genting for downtown Miami would
contain four times more gambling space than any casino in Las Vegas,
according to the developer’s plans. But the city is still divided on the
benefits of casino gambling. “When you look at the enormous size and
scope of some of these projects, it just doesn’t make sense,” said Phil
Goldfarb, the president of the Fontainebleau Miami Beach. But others see
it differently. “The Genting resort will be a magnet for the city,”
said Esteban Garcia, who owns a seafood restaurant on the Miami River. [Miami
