The project will have “best-in-class entertainment and dining,” Mantecon said. “we don’t mean best-in-class as in the most expensive and flashy the way Miami is. We mean best-in-class simply as just the best.”
There will be two separate 10 story buildings, but they will appear to be one building. The reason for the split is to minimize noise at the hotel.
What is currently Wharf Miami will occupy the ground floor of both buildings, along with a Garcia’s fish market.
The hotel building will have 165 keys, with a hotel lobby and amenities on the second floor and a rooftop pool. The developers chose Dream as the hotel brand since it is a creative, independent, boutique lifestyle brand.
The south building will be an entertainment building, with double-height 28-foot ceilings. There will be restaurants on the second floor, with a ballroom above that and a nightclub above. The rooftop will have a day club.
The goal is to make the area walkable with a lot of entertainment and dining options, Mantecon said.
CUBE 3 Architects is designing the development, with landscape design by Savino-Miller Design Studio.
Mantecon and Driftwood Capital are the developers.
