Marriott Marquis Miami Worldcenter Now Finalizing Loan For 2020 Groundbreaking, Would Become Region’s Biggest Hotel

Miami’s biggest hotel could break ground in 2020 at Miami Worldcenter, the developer of the project said.

The Marriott Marquis Miami Worldcenter Hotel & Expo Center would include 1,723 rooms and 500,000 square feet of convention space – bigger than any other hotel in the Miami area.

A financing package is now being finalized, a Vice President at developer MDM told the SFBJ in an interview published this week.

MDM hopes to break ground in 2020, she added.

City records show that as of this morning, there isn’t any construction permit pending for the property.

The hotel will have billions in economic impact to the area, the developer said.

Take it with a grain of salt….they have been “a few months from groundbreaking” since 2014.

I think I’ll forget the salt and water it down just like they did with the design of this proposal.

Obviously love it, pls don’t hate me, just saying some more color would be nice, especially inside. I’d just like some more of a Miami vibe. The MBCC is modern but still feels pretty Miami. Idk add some neon, or fountains or something. Just saying, don’t hate me 🙂

I’m confused as to why it has taken this long to happen? Why has it been down graded when it’s much needed? Probably going to be the busiest hotel in Miami! Right next to Brightline, most people are going to stay there because it’s walking distance… All the folks needing a room from Orlando or during events will book there. Why in the hell would you down grade space when your going to need more space to accommodate everybody? This project has me puzzled!

No, not everybody coming to a convention in Miami will or want to book there.

Generally, People would prefer the beach (Miami Beach convention Center) to book their conventions. However, a casino in the brightline area would be a game changer. Downtown Miami needs a high end casino.

It will be the region’s most boring hotel if they’re keeping that half-assed design.

Great news.
That area needs a large destination casino. Between the passenger port of Miami, and people coming from Orlando and West Palm – Miami could win big with a casino in that area. Tax the gambling revenue and let Miami win for once.

Exactly, all those big time casinos run by the Indian tribes are booming, bring tons of shows, sports events, restaurants, shopping and activity. The collateral is gambling but you know what? I don’t see crime going up…

I’m going to rewrite your obviously sarcastic comment just so you’ll understand how to be a real “smart Alec” next time:

OMG… so great, what a world class city! Miami is just like NYC. I hope there is a CVS on the first floor.

No need to thank me, smartass!
