Miami Beach Convention Center Hotel Redesigned, Set For Review

Design of the Miami Beach convention center hotel has been modified and resubmitted for review.

Significant value engineering appears to have taken place, with less glass now shown in renderings.

The project will replace a surface parking lot next to the convention center. A one-story office building and one and two story portions of the rear of the Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater building will also be demolished.

The plans still includes 800 hotel keys, along with 320 parking spaces. The tower itself remains 17 stories, but is now 185 feet, instead of 190 feet.

Construction is expected to start early next year, with site work underway this year.

The Miami Beach Design Review Board is scheduled to review the plans June 4.

Arquitectonica remains the architect.
