Marriott Has Been Given Real Estate Rights In Worldcenter Convention Hotel

Marriott has signed a franchise agreement with the developer of a massive convention center hotel at Miami Worldcenter.

According to a filing recorded with the county, Marriott has been granted the right of first refusal in the event of a sale, following completion of the building.

The hotel will operate under the Marriott Marquis name, the agreement states.

The first phase of the project will include at least 1,000 hotel rooms and 500,000 square feet of convention space, according to another document filed with the county last year. In total, up to 1,700 rooms are planned.

The agreement was recorded in October 2017.

I wish it was either of the previous two more innovative looking proposals than the watered-down glorified box currently being proposed. The economy is better than when it was downgraded two years back.

That original design is a beauty. Worthy of the name Marriot Marquis. The final watered down version looks more like a Marriot courtyard by an airport.

I don’t understand why they had to chop this thing down from the original plans? Yes at the time the economy went to hell but now that we are back on track it makes sense to beef it back up. With it being close proximity to everything you could ever want in Miami and literally right next door to Brightline this hotel will be packed! Future proof this hotel now because downtown will only continue to grow and more people looking for a hotel for the night.

The original design was pretty amazing and stood out. Then it went to another design which wasn’t as cool but still pretty nice. Then this latest one which looks ordinary in comparison.

Yeah, I remember the first design too. I just hope they don’t come with yet another water down version… sad.

I dont understand way there are dragging their ass with this project! If the were to get this thing built before the super bowl I’m sure it would have been booked already. I’m sure the Superbowl commity would have found use for the available floor space. By the Superbowl being one of the biggest events in the world it would have definitely got of attention an return business.
