Hyatt Site Could Be Bid On By Third-Party Developers, If Voters Approve

Hyatt Site Could Be Bid On By Third-Party Developers, If Voters Approve

Third-party developers may soon be given the chance to demolish and replace Downtown Miami’s Hyatt Regency and the adjacent James L. Knight Center.

Although Hyatt has hired Kobi Karp to prepare conceptual plans, the hotel company will seek outside developers once a deal is approved, according to Miami Today. Hyatt will manage the bidding process.

First, city commissioners and Miami voters must approve a new long-term lease.

Hyatt is working with city officials with the goal of placing the item before city commissioners on May 10, and a voter referendum on the deal in August.

At a minimum, the new development will include a state-of-the-art Hyatt hotel and an expanded River Walk and plaza. It could also include residential, office, meeting space, and retail.

It is a mistake to tear down the convention center without replacing it with a similar mid-sized convention / event center.

While I think a mid sized convention center is needed… Not there … It doesn’t need more saturation of vehicular traffic there … Place the center at world center on one of the vacant parcels near there

drive less walk more
drive less walk more

This is totally the last area that needs more traffic 🙂

the one to be built at world center is better suited to function as a convention center..this place is ground zero for brickell’s traffic gridlock.

The traffic at the bridge has nothing to do with the Hyatt and everything to do with the local assholes deciding they need to drive their personal vehicles to douche it up at Zuma etc. Blame yourselves, you are the traffic, not people staying in a mostly convention hotel who mostly don’t have their own rental cars there.
