Site Work Underway For 207 Room Holiday Inn Express In Edgewater After Developer Gets $55M Construction Financing

Work is underway in Edgewater on a Holiday Inn Express.

Developer Edgewater Hotel Land LLC was issued a $27.5m mortgage late last month, county records show. The loan can be increased to $55m, the documents state.

Test piles appear to have already been installed at the site. Records show that construction permits for foundation work, vertical construction, and tree removal are all now pending with Miami’s Building Department.

In addition to 207 rooms, the hotel will include 139 parking spaces and 2,850 square feet of ground floor restaurant space.

The Bentley Edgewater, a 36-story condo-hotel, was once planned for the property, but those plans were cancelled.

Kobi Karp is the architect.

Yup much better to have an abandoned lot for the homeless and druggies to hang out. God everyone here complains about everything. You moan bc things are all priced too high, then when the plan to build something as a moderate priced option you complain it’s ugly and cheap looking…..and then of course there’s the obligatory complaints about parking…mass transit etc…damn.

yes,they expect developers to make a big profit building great and very affordable buildings with no parking garages and a metrorail stop right at their door. i think their expectations are very unrealistic

Wrong.. not everyone who comes on this site complain about those things, but quite a few do!

It’s called Coastal Link, and if you think that’s not happening, dream on about free glorified shuttles sunshine.

Stunning. BUT … more parking spaces! We demand more. Also, please put a CVS in the first floor retail space.

Very cheap design

It is a moderately priced hotel. They’re building it cheaply so they can make a profit.

The first proposal had more density and was better.

Sometimes we immediately jump to judge architects but when you have to spend a third of the budget to provide senseless parking, designs will be lackluster. Developers are in the business to make a profit so there’s no point blaming them. As long as the city enforces minimum requirements and people buy what developers build, we will get crap.

Moderation of what?

This is one of the crap designed by KOBI KRAP. The developers of this S%$#*, they have been trying to do something in this place for 8 years, as a real estate agent I reserved 3 units in that garbage of Condo Hotel Bentley and 14 months later my lawyers had to intervene because they never got contracts, they did not cancel and they did NOT want to refund the money from the reservation. The sales team are liars, they always said they already had city permits, they gave dates to start construction, but in reality they had nothing. Martinez Developments / Amaury Martinez / Heafey Group, all LIARS.

From ugly to uglier. I don’t care what the existing conditions are when the potential is far higher.

I like the cancelled project

Pathetic. A Hotel in a major city does not need that amount of parking.

Major city?
Yes, but no density, infrastructure or functional mass transit…
It’s a car dependent city whether we like it or not

USA has less than a handful of what I d call a real city. I’d say we can call them megalopolys. Or humongous suburban sprawled small towns connected by huge expressways
