The owner of the Magic City Casino in Miami has applied for a license to open a new casino in the city’s Edgewater neighborhood at 3000 Biscayne Boulevard.

West Flagler Associates, Ltd., had applied in 2015 to open a new poker room in downtown Miami. The state Division of Pari-Mutuel Wagering rejected the application, but a state appeals court overruled the division’s action this month.

West Flagler filed an amended application April 20 with the state pari-mutuel division to open a casino at the Edgewater location, as first reported by news website Next Miami.

Miami-based real estate company Crescent Heights owns the Edgewater property at 3000 Biscayne Boulevard, formerly occupied by Legal Services of Greater Miami.

Neighborhood associations with members who reside near the Edgewater property are likely to oppose West Flagler’s plan to open a casino there.

According to a study by the National Association of Realtors, casinos have a negative effect on the communities that surround them. [Miami New Times] Mike Seemuth
