Urbanica Proposes 209-Room Hotel On The Ocean In Miami Beach, Replacing Arquitectonica Design

Plans have been submitted to build a new hotel called Urbanica the Beach in Miami Beach.

Hotel developer Urbanica purchased the property at 6747 Collins Avenue in North Beach last year from China City Construction for $40 million.

China City had planned a 20-story luxury condo tower designed by Arquitectonica. Those plans are now cancelled.

Urbanica will build an 11-story lifestyle hotel with 209 hotel keys and a restaurant. There will also be a garage with 91 parking spaces.

The new building is proposed at just 107 feet in height, compared to the 22 stories and 200 feet allowed by zoning code.

The proposal is set to be reviewed by the Miami Beach Historic Preservation Board on March 10.

Studio MC+G is the architect.
