Genting has proposed building a 300 room hotel over the Omni Station bus terminal, according to The Miami Herald. 

County Commissioners approved the proposal giving Genting a 90 year lease for the public land. Part of the approval meant Genting will renovate the existing Metromover station on NE 15th Street. If the project gets built, then NE 14th Terrace would be permanently closed and the hotel would be built over a rebuilt bus terminal.

Genting Group purchased the surrounding 14 acre site for $236 million in 2011, which included the old Miami Herald building with plans to build a casino that never materialized.
