Downtown Miami Getting A Morgans Originals Hotel By Accor At New Legacy Miami Worldcenter Tower

Accord has announced that it will launch a new hotel brand at Miami Worldcenter’s Legacy tower, which will begin construction soon.

Legacy becomes the first Morgans Original hotel announced in the world. Accor is the largest hospitality company in Europe, and the sixth largest worldwide.

Buyer of condo-hotel units at Legacy will be able to rent their units through Accor to earn income.

The property will also participate in the Accor Live Limitless Loyalty program allowing guests to earn and redeem points. Buyers at Legacy will receive benefits at other Accor properties including complimentary beach access, priority reservations, perks and discounts at restaurants and more.

The Morgans Original brand will join Accor’s lifestyle portfolio of brands, which includes Delano, Mondrian, SLS, Hyde, and MGallery.

Legacy Hotel & Residences will include 310 residences atop a 219-room hotel.

The project will also include an eight-floor Center for Health + Performance, and Miami’s first enclosed seven-floor rooftop atrium with a restaurant bar and lounge.

The rooftop will have Miami’s first “Singapore-inspired” cantilevered pool soaring 500 feet in the sky, and a members-only lounge

A separate rooftop pool atop the parking podium will span an acre, becoming downtown’s largest hotel pool deck.

Royal Palm says it will soon reveal plans for Legacy’s collection of restaurants, casual eateries and bar concepts.

Legacy will break ground this year, developer Royal Palm Companies said last week.

It’s ok, would be a lot nicer if it was much sleeker looking, and less of the choppiness. Love the design of the top. Hoping this design is the start of a new trend in world center.

New to Miami. Is there a reason so many of the buildings here are flat topped? Very few spires and not a huge amount of tapering to create more graceful structures. Is this all about maximizing sf, or is there something else going on?

Spires are porbably more expensive and they’re more customary of older buildings.

Check out the hundreds and hundreds of buildings in NYC with flat tops. In reality, that’s the design of most buildings around the world.

And of course, because it happens in NY there is no reason for asking any such questions. People here are dorks. I’ve never been in a town that mentions NY so freakin much for just about everything. No matter the topic, here comes the fakers who think mentioning NY is the beginning and end of every comparison or conversation.

Only somebody with a 3rd grade reading comprehension would think like that. You mentioned “NY,” the comment mentioned “NYC.” NY, is an abbreviation for New York State, which consist of New York City. Now, New York City is the biggest city in the United States of America and has the most the highrise (or skycraper) buildings of any city in the United States of America. The new person to Miami asked “. Is there a reason so many of the buildings here are flat topped? Very few spires and not a huge amount of tapering to create more graceful structures.” New York City is much older than the city of Miami.. but you’re probably ignorant to this fact. New York City is just an example I used towards the vast amount of buildings built in cities around the world where the majority of buildings are designed and built with flat tops. New York City was only mentioned as an example and a comparison for the sheer amount of buildings we see with flat tops around the world.

I hate to get this long winded but dummies make me do it.

Accor is the parent company of over 25 different hotel brands from Luxury to Economy.
The Fairmont Le Montreux Palace is NOT the equivalent of Motel 6.

Dude… you’re old, .. Pomo died 30+ years ago… but it is kinda modern deco in glass with FLW motifs in isolated spots …so basically your right it’s an eclectic mix throw back.

Well, modernism came back within the past ten years with all that Mad Men aesthetic, so I welcome Pomo to return, especially in Miami, where a TV show exemplified it. Pink hues and glass brick > “Brutalist, Tequesta-inspired” design.

Kobi Karp did not design this. This was designed in-house by the developer who has architects and designers. Kobi is for all practical purposes hired because his outfit has the horse power to do the necessary construction drawings. Note that these images do not have the typical KK stamp. This design is entirely driven by the developer who has a keen understanding of the program that they are marketing and selling. That is not Kobi’s M.O.
