FAA Approves 30-story Brickell Hotel That Will Have Two Hilton Brands

The Federal Aviation Administration has granted approval for a new Brickell hotel to be built.

The 30-story hotel will have a roof height of 340 feet above ground, and a highest point of 380 feet above ground.

There will be two hotel brands in the same building, both managed by Hilton.

Embassy Suites will be on the upper levels with a two-level sky lobby at the top of the building. Home 2 will take the lower floors.

In total, 358 keys are planned.

A construction permit was applied for in 2018 and is now almost fully approved, although the Zoning department rejected it last month.

The proposal was submitted for UDRB review in 2017. A utilities agreement was signed with the county in 2018, and a tree permit was obtained from the city in November 2019.
