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.

I can see some value engineering taking place, but when the approval stems from a voter initiative one would hope that a heightened level of scrutiny is placed on the review process of the updated plans when what was sold and what was delivered differ to such a major aesthetic degree. It feels a bit dishonest as a voter. We shall see.

It’s in Miami Beach and not the urban core. Nobody cares.

You must be new to the area

Um no. The urban core is on the other side of the causeways. Miami Beach is just a glorified car oriented suburban tourist trap filled with single family homes and a few of skyscrapers.

You must not live in the area.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

“single family homes” you clearly have no idea what you’re talking about…

Hey, don’t forget the bike lanes…

Literally thousands of parking spaces in a 2 block radius of this building. Another parking garage at the base isn’t needed.

I would expect the design review board to pick up the switch from glass to painted concrete block ?

From what I understand they ordered the “value engineering”. They wanted more definition on the facade. They thought all glass was too plain.
