ARCHITECTURE FIRM NBWW UNVEILS NEW RENDERINGS
OF MARRIOTT MARQUIS MIAMI WORLDCENTER HOTEL & EXPO

Designed by internationally recognized Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates (NBWW),
the project’s groundbreaking is anticipated in Spring of 2017

MIAMI, FLA. (October 18, 2016) – Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates, Inc. (NBWW) proudly unveiled today new renderings of the Marriott Marquis Miami Worldcenter Hotel & Expo Center in downtown Miami. Developed by MDM Group, the project will feature expansive world-class conference and exposition space as well as 1,700 hotel rooms. Construction for phase one is expected to begin by Spring of 2017.

The development’s new design plan includes two distinct vertical towers. The initial phase of construction will include the 600,000-square-foot conference and exposition space as well as 1,100 hotel rooms. The second phase consists of 600 hotel rooms, scheduled to begin shortly after the first phase commences.

“The phasing component of the new design brings several design opportunities that were simply not available in the original single phase contiguous design option,” said Igor Reyes, partner at NBWW. “While there are benefits to one swooping form in terms of operations, the hotel experience has become much richer with this new design as we are able to split the towers into smaller more unique and guest centric pieces.

The Marriott Marquis Miami Worldcenter Hotel & Expo Center will generate hundreds of jobs during construction and will lead to thousands of both direct and indirect careers once it is fully operational. The phasing of the project will also increase the demand for full-time positions.

“We are excited with the direction of the project thanks to NBWW and look forward to completion, as it will not only offer fantastic and long awaited hotel rooms and exposition space in to the region but it will also offer a diversity of new jobs to the community,” said MDM Development LLC Director of Development Joseph Herndon.

The Marriott Marquis Miami Worldcenter Hotel & Expo Center is developed by MDM Group. CALLISONRTKL, the globally acclaimed creative services organization, is the development’s interior design firm.

“two distinct towers”? Looks like two glass rectangles rising from a huge podium.

Let.’s call the new renderings ” Omni 2 “. Like Omni One was and is an eyesore on Biscayne Blvd. , Miami Marquis Worldcwnter Hotel , after the revised renderings will become an eyesore for Miami WorldCenter. What a shame.

If the curves played a better role in the entire shape of the tower, it would be far better. Also, it’s not the first time NBWW downgraded changed their design to something inferior. It happened with the Hilton in Downtown West Palm Beach.

I’ve never understood why if most of the public do not like a design why do developers go with it? I’m sure that they have plenty of options and run focus groups etc.
Confused.

We might see maybe if they don’t build the second phase. Would the phase one (J) design alone be better ?

I don’t think it’s an intriguing design whatsoever, but I really don’t think it’ll look bad. I think it’ll fit in well with the rest of downtown, and in particular that up-and-coming area of downtown.

Yes agree but the design doesn’t give that I want to have my convention there feel.
