Genting applies for FAA re-approval for Florida casino

Malaysian casino operator Genting is seeking re-approval from US authorities to build three towers for its long delayed casino in Florida after earlier approval expired, Miami Herald reports.

Genting first announced plans for the $3 billion luxury casino, Resorts World Miami, in 2011, purchasing the bayfront property for US$236 million.

According to local media, in mid-January the company seeked re-approval from the Federal Aviation Administration to build three 649-foot towers, according to federal records.

The FAA first approved the towers in 2013, but the approval expired on Jan. 10, 2017.
