Vertical Construction Underway On South Beach Hotel & Retail Project

Vertical Construction Underway On South Beach Hotel & Retail Project

A hotel and retail project that spans an entire block in South Beach has commenced vertical construction.

Washington Squared will include 312 hotel rooms, a restaurant and live performance space. There will also be 46,849 square feet of ground floor retail, along with a 258 space parking garage.

The property was purchased in 2015 for around $33 million, and a construction loan for $90 million was issued last year.

Washington Squared Owner LLC, controlled by Andrew Joblon, is the developer.

Just what Miami Beach needs. More tiny hotel rooms.

That’s the number one complaint I hear from Americans who visit.

That’s because Americans are getting fatter and don’t fit into small rooms anymore.

Yeah you Americans, just because they’re now asking $1200 a month for a 450 sqft apartment, don’t complain, like Polo said, you’re the one that got FAT!

He heard it from me! I am the broke American who wants to get more than what my buck will buy, so I go around complaining that my hotel rooms are too damn small :/

Perfect. We don’t want broke people coming to visit Miami. That’s why god made New Jersey, so hopefully they are really expensive really small tiny rooms 😉

It looks too long for its height. It should have been allowed to be taller or broken up to look like separate buildings.

That whole block is already long. Why would they break the building up?

You are exactly correct. This is what you get – a long boring and ugly designed building – because of those whiny little nimbys living in South Beach.

Looks like a huge inconvenience for the neighborhood. Surely they could have put scaffolding up and relocated the sidewalk?

Other cities do this?

It was a three story hotel on sixth and washington that prompted this need? Interesting.

They tried reasonably priced water taxi transportation to Miami Beach and those businesses went belly up because people just weren’t interested.

Because a $10 uber is just too much?
