800-Room Grand Hyatt Miami Beach About To Break Ground; Fillmore Closed For Construction

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.

Why do some people keep giving this worn out comment a “thumb up” vote?

Why visit this site if you don’t want to see Miami winning? Go read the The Washington Post.

Funny, when I read constant reports a few years ago that Miami is one of the top three poorest cities in the U.S.A, I never saw back then this person or anyone saying “Miami losing.” We get it, that person is happy about what he/she sees and reads going on right now with construction in Miami and what’s happening with the economy, but constantly saying “Miami Wining” and see “thumb ups” given to it on every article is monotonous and downright ridiculous!

how long has it taken miami to realize in order to compete in the convention business which brings big money to the tourism/hotel industry that you need large scale hotels,not boutique hotels in walking distance to your convention center…new orleans built this huge convention center right on the river and is walking distance to all the big hotels,central business district and french quarter..yeah miami is winning 30 years after your city commission has run the city like a kickback 3rd world county

New Orleans is the model you’re using to characterize how Miami is lacking as a city?

Development after 2002, with few exceptions, has really damaged Miami as quality city. Too much greed focused development…

Still wish the city went with one of the two original redevelopment proposals for the convention center. That along with the new office development around Lincoln would have completely transformed south beach

The interiors look God-tier, but the exterior looks like any hotel around an international airport.

It’s fine. Nothing special but it does the job for what is needed without being ridiculously ostentatious like that towering monstrosity that Levine wanted to build.

I remember voting against that proposal on Miami Beach. I voted early, at City Hall. Levine had campaign workers outside trying to persuade people to vote yes for it. I don’t know how much he was paying them but boy, were they idiots. One of them caught up with me on the way OUT of the polling place and kept insistently trying to argue why I should vote yes, even after I told him that I ALREADY VOTED NO.

Sucks for concert-goers, abruptly closing our main theater for shows. Nothing comparable that size locally—Olympia Theater’s capacity is 1,000 less.

Hopefully War Memorial Auditorium in Ft. Lauderdale can open quickly to bring similar shows.

They should pack all of Miami’s b.u.m.s and evicted h.o.m.e.l.e.s.s into here like sardines in a can

Can the exterior get any more bland? It looks like a cookie cutter airport hotel

This is so uninspiring, contextually nonenhancing. Shame on Levine, Gelber and others for killing OMA/Tishman’s winning design and substituting it for this crap!

What’s developed on MB effects all of MB, and elsewhere.

F-ck the Fillmore. More hotel rooms, less wasted spaces.
