Negotiations to redevelop downtown Miami’s Hyatt Regency and Knight Center seem to be heating up again.
New York developer Continuum appears to be among those now working on redevelopment plans, new records show.
William Wallace, a Continuum executive, registered with the city of Miami on August 10 to represent the firm as a lobbyist, records show.
Continuum wants to enter into a joint venture with the city and/or Hyatt in the redevelopment of the Knight Center, Wallace wrote in his registration.
Continuum is particularly interested in developing a residential component for AFL-CIO members, the registration says.
Continuum is also planning a 70-story luxury condo project in Brickell.
In recent months, there have been several other lobbyist registrations with an interest in redeveloping the Hyatt & Knight Center property.
Most of the registrations are from executives or representatives of Hyatt Hotels Corporation or Hyatt Equities LLC.
A representative of real estate firm Gencom Group also registered in July “to assist in the preparation of a proposal to redevelop the Hyatt Regency Hotel.”
