Across From Resorts World, Mandala Proposes 31-Story Courtyard By Marriott Hotel Designed By Blur Workshop

Manada Holdings has submitted new plans to build a Courtyard by Marriott hotel across from the Omni.

Architect Blur Workshop of Atlanta is designing the 31-story hotel tower. Blur is also designing the Virgin Hotel proposed on South Miami Avenue in Brickell.

The hotel is proposed to have 269 lodging units. Also included will be 28,261 square feet of meeting rooms, ballrooms and restaurant space, and 16,131
square feet of leased office space.

Mandala had previously submitted plans by Miami architect Allan Shulman for the property. A building on the site has already been demolished by the developer.

No parking will be built as part of the development, and it will instead be provided offsite.

Miami’s Urban Development Review Board will review the proposal on November 20.

They should build a mega casino. Build something large destination resort with high end gambling. Tax the gambling and put that money into infrastructure. There are very wealthy international travelers that go through the port or visit Miami.
Just keep it a high end type destination resort with high end gambling only.

This would be awful for families and the related real estate market.

Gambling is a cheap attraction for a city as beautiful and cultured as Miami.

Ask yourself, would you want to raise your kids in Las Vegas?

Yeah.. we’ll just rely on South Beach to attract tourist and meanwhile add a Ferris Wheel and this Skyrise contraption to pacify the citizens.

Sheesshhh!.. with people like you, no wonder the city of Miami is largely boring.

Vegas has affordable middle class housing, a job for every person and more, no more crime or homeless than any other city without a casino. so Yes no problem raising kids there.

Condos and apartments are NOT Resorts World’s business. It’s casinos !!

Even though Resorts World wants to build a “Resort” with a casino in it, some of these numbskulls who come on this site only see the word “casino” and then they think somebody needs them to become some kind of vanguard for all of the citizens of the city.

Beautiful design, just like the Virgin hotel rendering. Such a shame when the Courtyard Marriot looks like this but down the street Kushner is putting up a lime green square box.

Hotels and apartment buildings are entirely different projects and require different designs. Anyway, I think that “lime green square box” looks nice.

So, what happened with the first design scheme?

Was wondering the same thing! I actually like both, but the other was far more distinctive … was actually one of the projects I was looking forward to the most. ? I guess that at least partially explains why we haven’t received any updates in such a long time.

Parking lot whiners sound more like anti-parking activists,repeating the same comments again and again and again. go and open up a facebook page with other parking lot whiners and cry all day long about miami having too many parking garages and stop boring TNM Readers with the same comments

First, yes I agree with you, all these people that dont want buildings with parking think everyone lives in walking distance of where they work or live and or have access to metrorail or mover thinking it can account for every area of Miami; anyway in the short term no parking is ok with this being that the parking garage of the Omni can handle it, but the day the omni is turned down completely, or partially turned down for future development if parking is not considered than that building is in trouble.

Bring it on! Bring more hotels to the area. Completion 2023 or 2024.

It would look better if the cladding wasn’t all over the place giving a messy feeling, or even another design if the ugly 1960s archdiocese residence was included in the assemblage. Along with Melo’s barcode monstrosity, it’s sad to see Miami’s great churches dwarfed by chaotic architecture.

Bummer that they scrapped the Shulman plan, much more handsome building.
