Construction Underway On AC Hotel By Marriott Midtown Miami

In the Midtown Miami area, ground has been broken for a brand new hotel.

AC Hotel by Marriott Midtown Miami will include 153 rooms in a seven-story building. There will also be a restaurant and bar, rooftop pool, fitness center and meeting rooms.

In April, developer Midtown Lodging 2 LLC received a $21.3 million construction loan.

As of last week, foundation work appeared to be underway. However, no construction permits appear to have been filed, and a Notice of Commencement also doesn’t seem to show in county records.

At least it’ll cover that ugly window pattern the adjacent Hampton Inn.

I wish we saw more stuff taller this side of Biscayne Boulevard, between Midtown and Edgewater. I’d love to see NE 26th Terrace to 28th Street (especially 27th) between Miami Avenue and Biscayne Boulevard designated a historic district, so air rights could be sold to allow taller surrounding development and beautiful old homes and apartment buildings restored as a reminder of what Edgewater used to be in the 1910s and 20s. See Astor Street in Chicago as a good comparison.

2nd pic from bottom, another new, massive parking garage. keep on requiring/approving these and you wonder why traffic keeps getting worse and worse? build parking and people will drive to it.

Do you suggest businesses around there lose customers by taking a chance on not having this parking garage there?

Then it would be meaningless to start a business in that area. You seem expect these businesses to survive by your reasoning. Sorry, it doesn’t work that way.

There are thousands of housing units within a very walk-able radius. Sorry. You lose.

Anytime you have a lot of cars in a business area, that means the area is thriving. Want to see a dead business area, check out one that has very little traffic and no parked cars.

You have a point regarding that but this area can’t continue to do what it has done in the last few decades. Encourage Uber, public transit, carpooling. Tax traffic if you have to while lowering other taxes. There is a solution.

It may be possible that the increased traffic will make all this happen when all options are exhausted.

I also was gang-raped by a group of Genghis Khan Mongolian soldiers in a parking garage, however, after years of the most intense psychological treatment, I was able to overcome my Parking lot phobia and started to understand that people need a place where to park their cars, especially in a city with no public transportation.
