Dual-Branded Hotel Near Brickell City Centre Submitted For Review

Dual-Branded Hotel Near Brickell City Centre Submitted For Review

Developers Robert Finvarb and Tony Cho have formally submitted an application to build a dual-branded hotel and retail project in Brickell.

The two hotels will share “check in pods” on the sixth floor. There will also be food and beverage outlets on the same floor, along with an outdoor pool.

On the ground floor, 25,000 square feet of retail is planned. One of the retail spaces will be 11,905 square feet – about the same size as the Trader Joe’s store under construction in South Beach.

A rooftop terrace with a bar appears to be planned on level 21.

The 21-story tower will include 264 hotel rooms and 228 parking spaces, using stackers. The garage is designed by Arquitectonica to allow it to be converted to active use if the need for parking is eventually reduced, an attorney for the developer wrote.

The property was once home to the El Eden Motel, recently demolished by Finvarb to make way for the new development.

Arquitectonica is the architect. The Urban Developement Review Board will review the proposal on June 20.

Exactly… and Miami is known for it’s torrential downpours. I don’t know about anyone else but if I’m a tourist, I’m not getting soaking wet in a rain storm because some people want me to walk to this hotel, no, not when I can just conveniently drive my rental car and park there.

You can always stay in Doral/Airport with your rental and easily get anywhere. In brickell, Uber/Lyft/Bird or walking would do just fine for tourists. Some people just want to relax in Miami and not have to drive.

If I rent a car, I don’t want to call Uber/Lyft/Bird or anything else to get to this hotel when I arrive in Miami. What’s so hard about understanding that?

hopefully they can provide shade or climate control, unlike Sugar, where it’s usually unbearable hot.

Hopefully they don’t have foliage spoiling the views like Sugar as well.

Arquitectonica mailing it in again. Such a simple, boring design. Please do better, AQ and developer.

TBH, it’s not that bad for Arquitectonica. It’s better than the last rendering with the lines. Still, I wish the top wasn’t flat, instead maybe angled or curved coordinated with the slanted black and white facade.

Can’t even build hotels in Brickell without parking? WTF is wrong with Miami?

Tibor Hollo says that Brickell is endowed with “fantastic” transportation options.

Blame the code not the builder. He is just doing what he needs to do to get approval.

1 block from Metrorail, 2 blocks from Metromover. Pretty sure they could get away without parking.

Sure, they probably could get away with no parking, if this was an apartment building.

Yup. If this was New York. Let’s say the tourist staying there wants to go for a stroll through the Grove. Walk to the metrorail station, get off at Grove station and walk 30 blocks to Le Bouchon. Not bad eh? How about if the tourist wants to go shopping at Dolphin Mall? (not everyone can afford to shop at BCC) What if he/she wants to go to South Beach? (can’t imagine why). Can they take metromover or metrorail to any of these places without walking 30 blocks or waiting for connections on public buses in our lovely 90 degree heat? You guys who keep advocating for parkingless structures are out of touch with reality. With the outrageous costs of mass transit, the lack of real funding, and rider apathy in Miami, we are up shit’s creek without a paddle. Too little too late. Realistically speaking, you guys will be in your 60s by the time any comprehensive rapid transit system will be in place here. Do the math and work out construction time frame. Sorry…just being real.

If you love driving so much and going far away why stay in Brickell in the first place? Go stay at Doral with your car. From Brickell you can get a ride sharing for just $10 to the beach, downtown or the grove. It is supposed to be a more city like experience. If you have to drive that far just stay that far, you will save money and you will have plenty of parking. I live in Brickell and I would never advise a tourist with a car to stay there with all that traffic.

People in New York are forced to not be able to drive so walking or rail is the best option. It’s different here in Miami we have the option so parking makes since. I would much rather drive my own car than public transportation any day. I rather be in the comfort of my own vehicle rather than be around some strangers. If rail was in close proximity to where I live in sure I would use it sometimes. The good thing about Miami is you have that choice as for New York you don’t. The down side is ugly parking pedestals an not many people walking around which is bad for businesses in the downtown area. At the end of the day you choose which ever you prefer at least you have that choice, up north you do not.

Less for the hotel guests, more for the 25k square feet of retail and rooftop bar overlooking the river and skyline

Brickell is endowed with great transportation options…the one I’m using right now are my feet.

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.

Likely doing the best they can within the budget the developer gives them.
