Downtown Miami’s Car-Free 31-Story Yotelpad Tower Begins Vertical Construction

Yotelpad is now going vertical.

The 31-story downtown Miami hotel and condo tower has commenced its vertical ascent, photos from last week show.

No parking garage is being built at Yotelpad, making the tower much cheaper and faster to build.

Other residential towers nearby in downtown Miami such as Centro, and Lofts 1 & 2, were built without parking and sold fast. Yotelpad sold fastest of all, reaching 95% sold in a matter of months.

Completion is scheduled for 2021

It’s still an improvement over the shifty prison widows in the older renderings, and might look nice depending on the quality of the brickwork.

Yeah to keep feeding the scam that’s valet. When I go to a place that’s forced valet I don’t tip.

Nice. Hopefully, more developers can build car free towers.

Amazing Case Study: No Car Parking, plus thoughtfully designed small units = attainable pricing down = > one year to 95% sell out. Sounds like a great business model. I look forward to the day where car-free designed buildings are the norm and not the exception.

not true at all. Yotelpad has no rental requirements meaning the unit owner can rent it out like a hotel room. Muze at met downtown is a long term rental building (12mon) with only valet parking and it’s struggling to find tenants.

They are also directly across from the Aston Martin construction site and next to arguably the most congested intersection in downtown miami. Many spots I would point my clients to other than that building, with or without parking.

5 blocks do not make that much of a difference.

I was wondering what was going to be built next to my current building since i live next door. The rendering looks very nice. It looks like it will be half hotel, half residential. By the way the construction crew does a very good job of cleaning up around the area and their traffic crew are doing a good job helping the traffic. I thought traffic would be worse. I’ve seen some bad projects in the past. Cheers to all.

Stop saying vertical construction. It’s either simply construction or going vertical. Is there a horizontal construction that I am not aware of?

Do you even visit downtown let alone ride the Metro Mover ? It runs along side the site.
