The Fontainebleau Resort is already the biggest hotel in Miami with 1,504 rooms, and now a major expansion is being proposed.
The expansion would not add any hotel rooms, but instead would add ballrooms and a parking garage.
The new facility would be built on a surface parking lot at 4360 Collins Avenue, south of the resort. The property is already owned by the Fontainebleau. A similar proposal for the same site was cancelled last decade due to the recession.
A bridge from the existing resort is also being proposed above A1A, to accommodate both cars and pedestrians.
The proposed bridge would remove cars from the roadway, the Fontainebleau says.
