Construction of the Grand Hyatt Miami Beach is about to get underway, according to a press release from Miami Beach.
City commissioners voted yesterday on a deal that would temporarily close the Fillmore Miami Beach at Jackie Gleason Theater beginning June 1 to allow foundation work to begin faster.
The Fillmore will be closed for around a year, and the developers will reimburse venue operator Live Nation for lost income. There will also be renovations to the loading dock and back of house spaces at the theater.
Groundbreaking on the Grand Hyatt is set for this summer, with completion in 2025.
The Grand Hyatt Miami Beach will include:
- 800 rooms (including 52 suites)
- 90,000 square feet of indoor meeting/conference space, plus 10,000 square feet outdoors
- 5 food and beverage outlets, including a signature restaurant that is already leased
- 2 pools and a gym
- A Grand Hyatt club lounge
- 320 parking spaces
The building will be connected to the Miami Beach Convention Center.
Bernardo Fort Brescia of Arquitectonica is the architect. David Martin of Terra Group and Jackie Soffer of Turnberry Associates are the developers.
