Downtown Miami’s newly opened 32-story X Miami apartment tower will now have a hotel component.
The Guild Hotels will be on 4 floors of the building, taking up 64 apartments. The remaining 400 units will be for residents, a spokesperson for developer PMG said.
Hotel guests will be given an entrance code to access specially furnished units, which will have daily housekeeping and concierge service. Guests will also have use of the same amenities that all X Miami residents have, including a gym, sky dog park, screening lounge, two-level co-working lab, pool deck, self-service mini-market, picnic courtyard, and lobby coffee and cocktail lounge.
X Miami was designed by CFE Architects, with interior design by Antrobus + Ramirez, inspired by the growing Miami downtown scene. The development focuses on its shared spaces including a lobby that is open to the public and features a bar and coffeehouse, a two-level co-working space, private meeting rooms, a modern gym big enough to cancel your club membership, a sky view dog park, Mezzanine entertainment area, lawn with amphitheater stairs, pool with a stage and DJ booth, a social hall with meeting tables and huge modular couches.
These are all examples of intentional ‘zones’ for people to congregate around similar interests or needs. This helps residents feel comfortable using the amenity spaces in the daily lives. PMG thoughtfully designs the social spaces within X Social Communities in order to promote connectivity. Their intention is to get members out of their rooms and into the community.
The interior design also pays tribute to X Chicago with gritty textures such as “Chicago brick” up-cycled from actual demolished factories in Chicago. Also, unique lighting fixtures that bare the X Social Community mantra “Life is better with company” can be found on the property, in addition to post-modern art deco details which adorn the shared spaces. Each of the 29 residential floors has an original mural from one of six renowned artists in its elevator vestibule. There are also original murals in the gym, courtyard, social lounge, and pool deck. The parking garage and elevators are wrapped in art from Belgian artist Sammy Slabbinck.
