CitizenM Breaks Ground On 351 Room Micro-Hotel At Miami Worldcenter With Rooftop Bar, Playful Art

Foundation work got underway this week at the 12-story CitizenM Miami Worldcenter, and an official groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for today.

Contractors have been granted a phased foundation permit while they await approval for a full construction permit, city records show.

CitizenM Miami Worldcenter will include 351 rooms, each with motorized shades. As with other CitizenM properties, rooms will be micro-sized, with the hotel chain touting that the new property will have “wall-to-wall beds.”

A rooftop bar known as CloudM will be located on the 10th floor. Also on the same rooftop level will be a pool and sundeck, with an exercise room on level 11.

CitizenM has submitted plans to install “Playful Toy” artwork on the facade of the building, to meet a city requirement for public artwork.

Gensler is the architect.

I think “wall-to-wall” beds is a nice way to describe rooms so small, they can just barely fit a bed in. I’ve been in plenty of tiny NYC apts with wall-to-wall beds … didn’t know at the time how desirable it was!

I don’t see how these micro hotel units are a plus for our city.

Perhaps they attract additional tourists who couldn’t other wise afford a stay in Miami in a larger traditional hotel room.

Not to mention economic benefits for construction worker jobs, and additional business for the contractors and the building material suppliers, the new jobs the hotel creates, the tax revenue for the city. I could go on and on…

Or perhaps you prefer the vacant lot and the homeless camps that have plagued the area for years?

I remember when I first started visiting this site, I was so excited with each building, the proposals, developments. I never really read your comments and then one day I began to read you guys and you have taught me a lot, specially to be more selective and look at things I did not pay attention before, and then I started to realized how repetitive the designs or the lack of became, how the proposals/renderings are nothing like reality, how we have allowed prime sites be just filled with ugly boxes and how we have a city ran or ruined by the lack of leadership…im sad!!!

It should of been much taller and the design is hideous, just like the Brickell citizen M design.

It looks like MWC will be divided into two sections, the mediocre designed south side with Caoba, Citizen Mehh, Luma, the Marriot Convention Hotel and the beautifully design north side with Paramount, Legacy Miami, Hines Tower, Konnect Tower and the other I can’t remember now…

Real primo property and they put a 1980s looking building on it…I’ve seen lots of complaints about buildings on here before but this one is serious.

Blame the city for approving this kind of bs.

By far the most baffling decision about this project I’ve read about.

Cheap, tacky, and totally unbecoming in this new area of development. Looks like same design as the Holiday Inn on Biscayne they’re going to demolish.

I don’t understand the hate. This is a thoughtful midcentury-inspired design, and the ground floor is very open to the streetscape. Not everything needs to be a skyscraper.

I hope parking isn’t considered for this building in this position

Better than the Brickell one by far, but that’s not saying much. It’s just a filler with ugly art, and shouldn’t be on prime real estate.
