City Signs Off On Embassy Suites/Home 2 Hotel In Brickell

Approval to build a combination Embassy Suites and Home 2 hotel in Brickell was granted by Miami’s Planning & Zoning Department on May 22.

The project includes 211 Embassy Suites keys and 142 Home 2 keys, for a total of 353 keys.

In order to approve the project, a waiver for reduced parking of 161 spaces was necessary. 177 spaces are normally needed for a hotel of this size under Miami 21, but a 30 percent reduction can be granted when in proximity to transit.

Funky building. I like it (if it stays true to the render, especially come night time). The more infill the better.

Totally, totally agree with you.
It will shine among all the other towers giving our skyline a true urban feel.

This is a nice addition to the area. Anything is better than nothing to begin with considering the lot it will be on. Does anyone the height for the project?

Literally every West Brickell building looks like this now. “Random” boxes and frames that add nothing to the design but chaos. Funny how the “urban” Miami21 code always requires more parking than actual developers seeking profit want. Maybe DPZ can help the city redo some of that so we don’t end up with walls of parking garage vents facing our dead streets. I don’t see that happening. RIP the cute little buildings this is replacing, you did your job.

So they got a parking waiver allowing for a nice base and street level, but the tower is awful, even when next to a self-storage.

It is boxy but better than an empty lot.
I know there is very little creativity in the architecture world in Miami, except for a couple of things. We have to live with AC cooling units as top of building decorators, boxy architecture and monotonous looking buildings… But given the choices mentioned above, I’ll take this tower.

It would look better without the random bumps, considering the top and bottom look pretty decent.
