Netherlands-Based Hotel Chain to Open 348-Room Location at Miami Worldcenter
MIAMI — Netherlands-based hotel chain citizenM has unveiled plans to open a 348-room hotel at Miami Worldcenter, a $2 billion mixed-use development in downtown Miami. The 12-story hotel will total 128,000 square feet and will be located along 2nd Avenue, adjacent to Miami Worldcenter’s pedestrian-only, open-air shopping promenade. The hotel will feature a swimming pool, bar and sun deck on the 10th floor and a fitness center on the 11th floor. The hotel will also include a cloudM rooftop bar offering views of Biscayne Bay and the downtown Miami skyline, as well as 1,850 square feet for societyM, the hotel brand’s creative spaces and meeting rooms. San Francisco-based architecture firm Gensler is designing the building. Construction is underway on the first phase of Miami Worldcenter, which includes a 60-story Paramount condominium community, the 444-unit CAOBA apartment tower and retail space. The first phase is slated for completion later this year. Miami Worldcenter Associates, led by Art Falcone and Nitin Motwani, is the master developer for the 10-block project.
