Brazilians Building A 43-Story Ibis Hotel On Brickell’s Chicken Lot

Brazilian developer Galwan is moving forward with plans to build a 520-room hotel on Brickell’s ‘chicken lot’.

The company clinched a deal with Dade County last week for utilities that will allow them to build 520 rooms at 88 S.W. 10th Street. Galwan will pay a connection charge estimated to be $346,634.

The hotel is expected to carry the Ibis flag, a budget brand of Accor Hotels of France. It will rise 43 stories, including seven levels of parking and three levels of amenity and restaurant space.

Galwan bought the 22,770-square-foot property across from Mary Brickell Village earlier this year. Soil testing is already underway, and the company recently said that they expect to complete construction by 2018.

Investment for the project comes from 64 partners in Brazil, mostly from the state of Espirito Santo. Total investment is said to be around $130 million.

Arquitectonica is the project architect.

A budget hotel right next to Metrorail is a great idea and the design is nice! Love how they are filling in the skyline!

People may like or hate the design but it will still be better than seeing chickens run around. Hopefully this hotel will bring more customers to the restaurants that keep closing on that street.

That is some really bad photoshopping! A building of that scale would be far more imposing than what that rendering implies. The design is blah, but no surprise there.

Who’s hosting the party? Looks like a bunch of confetti coming down the face of the building.

It is refreshing to see a building without balconies

Um, that’s because most hotels don’t have “balconies.”

This hotel should do very well here at this location. The design isn’t bad either…especially for Arquitectonica

White Ibis is also known as a Chokoloskee Chicken, so…fitting brand, maybe.
