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.

Lets talk about how it took a developer almost 3 years to get this approved. Systems need to be modernized.

Heck, this article has me scratching my head… isn’t the UDRB part of the Zoning Department?

Nope. It’s a review/hearing board with members appointed by commissioners. No zoning staff is on the board.

UDRB refers to the siteplan approval. Zoning dept is on the master permit approval, They still require a review.
We should have this done in a couple of weeks.

Maybe the developer was slow? Or their architect, engineers – maybe they had trouble paying? Lots of reasons…

It would have been faster if we would have filed electronically. But paper copies and private provider still took us 12 months for master permit.

I think the system is getting better.

Maybe because they’re about as competent as whoever designed the proposal?

This appears to be more of a market rated hotel which will be the first in the area built in a long time. In addition to that, with almost 360 hotel suites I’m here to tell you that This will be one of the towers that will provide enough hotel room capacity for the American Dream Megamall in Miami Lakes. let’s get this built before that opens.

Nice project, too much (161 spots) parking. At least they look stacked and/or tandem which means less space is needed than traditional spots. So they get a +1 for that.

Its only 161 spots, you act like every spot will be filled.

Yeah.. 358 keys and 161 parking spots means that even if they are all filled, still, almost half of all the rooms don’t have a parking space.

These expert bloggers who never even built a dog house know more on parking needs for this project than the developers investing and risk money, or banks giving the construction loans. Obviously, they feel that a certain amount is needed for the project to be feasible. If it were up to some of these bloggers, they would force a 90 year old to ride a bicycle or have to walk everywhere.
