CitizenM Updates Rendering Of Planned Brickell Hotel

Hotel chain CitizenM has added a new rendering on their website of a hotel planned in Brickell, replacing a previous rendering.

According to the website, the hotel is still planned to include 252 rooms.

Last month, the hotel chain had placed a different rendering of the Miami hotel tower currently in the planning stage.

The company purchased the Perricone’s Marketplace property in Brickell last fall for $16.18 million.

Looks fine.

The initial rendering was hideous. This new one gives off an Sls Brickell(?) Kind of vibe.

It went from looking like a giant pre-school to a soviet era housing project. Perricone’s will never be the same and those banyan trees help give it a vibe.

I guess they think all of Miami is South Beach or Wynwood. Embarrassing to built this in the heart of Brickell.

Delegitimizes Brickell and Downtown as a whole.

This wouldn’t be allowed in South Beach.

Then I guess it goes with the rest of Brickell your saying . Because all the buildings have color on them . There just going with what’s already happening in Brickell .

All “colored” buildings are not the same. Don’t believe me? Compare any of these 2 renderings to Brickell Heights or SLS Lux

The first render is good minus the murals. Take off the murals an just leave the windows exposed and it’s fine. The second render is garbage throw that design away!!!!

It looks like the same exact building in both renderings. Just from different angles, which explains why the one wall is different in the two pictures.

No clue what you’re complaining about.

Meanwhile city of Miami commissioners are tripping out on casinos being built in the city’s urban core.

Hey commissioners, do something constructive with your time like stopping the spread of crappy architect like this, okay?

Poor Perricone’s … really contributes so much to making Brickell liveable. Wishful thinking that Perricone’s could be saved and devt can take over the silly park next door. Too bad we can’t create a Mary Brickell Village District to encourage architecture sensitive to that popular Miami urban spot. Yeah, I know, it’s Miami … the city that has so many advantages and always f’s itself over! Oh well, I’ll just pack it up and move to a city which has its s**t together.

OMG, what a disgrace. it seems it was done by an architecture student that is about to drop out and reconsider another career choice. The problem of being plain ugly is one thing but this box does not do anything for the street…there is no street interaction, it seems it won’t have retail at the bottom. Not familiar with Citizen M but it seems like a cheap hotel, definitely cheap design not suitable for the prime location.
I believe in order to maximize Brickell’s potential the city or some type of local agency should care a little bit more with the design of the buildings, street interaction, sidewalk width for a denser area, landscape, streetscape, this so ‘called art and murals’.

I love how someone thought this was “better” than the prior version. It looks like a 4 year old finger painted over the prior version.

If it was all monochromatic or just 1 or 2 tones it would be much better. Trying too hard to fit in with Brickell Heights’ colorful podium and failing.

Right? The first rendering was bleh, but this is a vast improvement. It’s like you can’t win with some people!!! This is Miami, not Tampa. What’s wrong with a little color and flash?

The color doesn’t bother me at all, what kills me are those little round in the middle of a gigantic concrete wall, blocking the beautiful city view. Take that wall down!!!
