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.

“no, somewhere between 2 and 22.”

So since it’s going to be 22 stories, what’s your gripe?

Damn! That is where I lost my virginity back in High School. Best 50 bucks I ever spent. No joke, that place had great memories for me.

Waste… no new construction in brickell should be under 400 ft…you want low rises, go to Midtown where the FAA will keep you short.

The FAA doesn’t keep Midtown short, zoning does.

1000ft+ is allowed in Dwntwn and Brickell. FAA would not approve 1000ft+ in Midtown. Direct path of flights.

And your point? Something better than nothing is a sad way to live, son. Go big or go home.

Love the project for the location. West Brickell is more affordable and will be a very popular area within a decade.

I bet it’ll have more locals/full time occupants than other parts of Brickell, thus increasing the density. At least until Miami develops high paying jobs that give locals the opportunity to afford the insane rents to the east.

The highest salaries in Miami are earned by residents of Brickell.
The highest wages are paid by employers in Brickell.

It is a hotel. Why would you have full time occupants.

Another Arquitectonica beauty!!! it so too 2-dimensional with its boring triangles, curves, circles, drawn on all parking structures and balconies.
