I disagree with Bill Diggs’ Sept. 16 letter, Replace relic for growth and development . The Genting project will stifle a neighborhood that is finally showing signs of developing. He speaks of public access to the water. Is there a park planned along with the overblown hotel? What about traffic congestion and lack of planning in relation to the Arsht Center? And he doesn’t mention gambling.
As a Venetian Causeway resident, I say save the relic — an elegant, iconic building that still has use and value to businesses. Miami already has its share of glitzy hotels.
