Construction Permit Filed For Hotel & Retail Across From Brickell City Centre

The developers of a hotel and retail project across from Brickell City Centre filed for a construction permit last week.

The project is named AC Miami Brickell, records show. It is set to replace the former El Eden motel, which has been demolished.

According to the newly filed permit, the project will include:

  • 22,086 square feet of retail on the ground floor
  • 264 hotel rooms spread over 238,249 square feet on levels 7-21
  • $45,558,626 construction value
  • 22-story, 262-foot tower height

The project has already been through review by Planning & Zoning, including a vote by the Urban Development Review Board.

A rooftop bar was included on the plans submitted earlier, with a design by Arquitectonica that also included room for two hotel brands sharing the same building. Previously, the developer said the project would be “millennial drive.”

Tony Cho and Robert Finvarb are the developers.
