A lifestyle hotel will soon begin construction on oceanfront property at 6747 Collins Ave, hotel developer Urbanica has announced in a press release.
The new hotel will rise 20 stories and include 200 rooms. It will include a signature restaurant by Chef Fernando Trocca, an indoor bar, pool bar and beach service.
Urbanica purchased the .98 acre property on August 27 for $40 million. The seller was China City Construction, which had planned luxury condos on the site.
Urbanica is also planning a hotel tower in Edgewater. The 200-room hotel will be called The Biscayne, and be built at 3200 Biscayne Boulevard, with views of Biscayne Bay. The hotel will have approximately 5,000 square-feet of retail space on the ground floor, a rooftop pool, restaurant, bar, game room and parking. An entertainment room on the 20th floor will feature numerous activations each month, such as live music, art shows and parties with world-renowned DJs. Opening is scheduled for late 2020.
Urbanica’s other properties include The Meridian, Regina’s Grocery, Kaskades Hotel, The Euclid Hotel, and The Fifth.
