Sneak Peak Of Hyatt Model For Massive Downtown Redevelopment With Up To 900 Hotel, 1800 Residential Units

Architect Kobi Karp shared a photo of an architectural model for the massive Hyatt redevelopment project in downtown Miami with his Instagram followers yesterday.

The hotel company wants to demolish the Hyatt Regency and rebuild it.

Last year, Hyatt said the new project would have 900 hotel rooms and 1800 residential units, including an entire tower of micro-residential units.

Hyatt planned to bring oversee development while bringing in outside developers. It could include to residential towers and a hotel tower, along with office and retail. An expanded riverwalk and public plaza was also planned.

The land where Hyatt currently has a long-term lease for their Hyatt Regency is city owned, and commission approval and a voter referendum are needed to extend the lease. In 2017 and 2018, commissioners postponed voting on the deal.

Based on the location this project must take into account any future transportation improvements related to the bridge and the i95 ramps…

If it’s just sitting there hemorrhaging money, then yeah, I’m all for taking it off of the taxpayers backs.

Hyatt is just the flag per license. Blame the leasehold, which of course is the city.

Always postponing projects, just like they postpone a metromover extension so much it isn’t even on the commissioner agenda anymore.

When was an extension ever actually proposed, apart from a half-assed option for Baylink?

Rebuild with a medium sized show facility. The Knight Center fulfills a need within Miami.

The Knight Center is old and outdated.

They’ve been saying that for 20 years. I’ll believe it when I see it.

And the thing about it, the Marine Stadium is already built! All it will take is a little remodeling and paint and it’s done with very little effort.
