Genting Malaysia Berhad hopes to build a $3 billion resort in Florida that could create 15,000 construction jobs. The Resorts World Miami would have four hotel towers, a casino, condos, and retail and entertainment establishments. Destination casinos are not yet approved in Florida, but two legislators say they will propose legislation. "If destination casinos are approved in the next year or two, they'll build it all at once, within three to five years," said Tadd Schwartz, a spokesman for Genting. "If not, they'll build it as the market demands, and take 10 to 15 years."
