CitizenM Hotel Coming To Miami Worldcenter With 348 Keys

CitizenM has confirmed that they will build a 12-story hotel at Miami Worldcenter.

Plans were filed with Miami’s Planning & Zoning Department last month, records show. The company confirmed those plans with a press release.

In total, 128,000-square-feet of space will be built. The building itself will be located along NE 2nd Avenue between 7th and 8th Streets, and will also include a 10th floor swimming pool and sundeck. A fitness center will be on the 11th floor.

A rooftop bar called cloudM will be atop the building, with views of Biscayne Bay and the skyline.

The hotel will be located adjacent to Miami Worldcenter’s pedestrian-only, open-air shopping promenade, which will be lined with retail, restaurants, and entertainment.

“Welcoming citizenM to Miami Worldcenter expands our reach in being able to offer an affordable yet luxuriously-designed hotel within our ‘city within a city,’ and is in line with our grand vision, the likes of which Miami has never seen before,” said Nitin Motwani, Managing Principal for Miami Worldcenter Associates.

Two other CitizenM hotels are planned in Miami – Brickell and South Beach.

Gensler is the architect.

Just 12 floors for a high density area, strange

There are more hotels planned for the area so the lack of this building not being very tall won’t matter.

Honestly I don’t really get it either. Its such a loss on investment when you have a high density site and decide to build to a 1/4 of what you could. At this height 1/2 the hotel rooms (if any any) can’t even properly see the bay with the Arena in front.
Just seems like a strange decision to me.
But hey filling out more of the World Center site is always a good thing.

The question isn’t why didn’t they build a bigger hotel, which is probably scaled correctly to this pioneering location, but why didn’t they incorporate it into a building with another use?

True, a 348 Key Hotel is actually very large. Its funny because the renderings don’t give that impression.
I guess the lot is quite long.
Like you said a Mix used building in this location would have likely provided more use per what is allowed

You couldn’t build higher than this in front of Paramount and then not get sued by everyone who bought at Paramount.

Modern hotel but affordable.

I’ve been to their hotels in Europe and they’re amazing. The artwork and local engagement is the best I’ve seen in hospitality. I’m sure the rendering is just a baseline, but have no doubt the final product will be a great addition to downtown

Looks like the hotel at MIA. Straight from the 80’s. Unfortunately when I see something like this, It is when I start missing Arquitectonica’s crappy design…because this one is baaaad!!

The MIA hotel is from the 1950s. It actually reminds me of the old Dupont Plaza Hotel with a hint of Streamline Moderne. Still, it could do without the alphabet soup letters scattered along the windows.

The letters spell “ART”, it is a placeholder for some art piece that will go in.

This is the problem with Miami. This is actually a classic, minimal, lovely design. It will both interact with the street and allow an interesting difference and light play between the other structures of this development. Not everything needs to, or can, be 1089 feet.

But yeah I guess build another stupid swoopy blue-glass white-stucco parking-podiumed dump, that’s what we need.

SEE, you can have life on NE 2nd ave. instead the city allowed it to be turned into an alley.

Really true. They allowed it to be turned into a service road for parking garages and events at the arena instead of used as an actual city street.

Looks better than the one they’re proposing in Brickell.

Another downgrade from a previously dazzling render.

What was the previous rendering? I don’t remember a clear one ever since the development was changed from an enclosed shopping mall.

Oh wow look at that. Another Herald fluff piece where Mana says “he’s just around the corner” from developing something. How many times do these writers need to go to this clown before they realize he’s DOING NOTHING
