The Gentling Group made big headlines purchasing the Miami Herald Building this year saying they would turn the building into Resorts World Miami. Not everyone realized in addition to buying the Herald Building, the Gentling Group purchased The Omni Building from the Jeorge Perez Group, paying the full price of the mortgage note through a foreclosure action and acquiring the deed.
Only four months earlier Jorge Perez , Jimmy Tate and Sergio Rok purchased the 161 million dollar mortgage note for The Omni Center. These two buildings, The Miami Herald and The Omni Center are supposedly destined to be for the new proposed gambling resorts in downtown Miami, if Florida legislators approve gambling. A walkway will link the two developments.
