Netherlands-based citizenM has announced plans to open a 348-key hotel within Miami Worldcenter, one of the largest private mixed-use developments underway in the United States, occupying 27 acres in the heart of the Downtown Miami.
The 12-story hotel, which will comprise 128,000-square-feet along NE 2nd Avenue between 7th and 8th Streets, will include a tenth-floor sun deck featuring a swimming pool and rooftop bar, along with a state-of-the-art fitness centre and gym on the 11th floor.
It will be located adjacent to Miami Worldcenter’s pedestrian-only, open-air shopping promenade, which will be lined with world-class retail, restaurants, and entertainment options.
The hotel will also feature 1,850 square feet for societyM, the brand’s signature creative spaces and meeting rooms, and a cloudM rooftop bar offering views of Biscayne Bay and the downtown Miami skyline.
Gensler Architects will be responsible for the hotel’s design.
Ernest Lee, managing director, development and investment for citizenM in the United States, said: “citizenM’s rollout strategy has always cantered around following our guests - a group of modern travellers who frequent true live/work/play destinations within the world’s gateway cities.
“We are very excited to join the Miami Worldcenter development, a transformative project that will offer a high-quality mix of workplace, residential, dining, nightlife, shopping, conference, and transit outlets.”
Spanning ten city blocks, Miami Worldcenter is a $2 billion mixed-use development reshaping the centre of Downtown Miami.
Construction on the first phase of the project, which includes the 60-story Paramount luxury condominium, the 444-unit CAOBA Class A apartment tower, and high-street retail, is now underway and slated for completion later this year.
