citizenM and developer Miami Worldcenter Associates announces the start of construction of the citizenM hotel at Miami Worldcenter, a $4 billion mixed-use development. The official groundbreaking will happen this Thursday.
The citizenM Miami Worldcenter hotel is designed by the Amsterdam-based firm Concrete, a long-time partner of citizenM, in conjunction with Gensler. The 12-story, 351-room hotel at Miami Worldcenter will span 128,000 sq. ft. Highlights include a 10th-floor sundeck and a cloudM rooftop bar, as well as 1,850 sq. ft. mapped out for societyM, the brand’s signature creative spaces and meeting rooms. citizenM Miami Worldcenter will also draw inspiration from the local community, with a public art program and interiors filled with an eclectic mix of contemporary art, photography and objects by local artists.
The hotel will be the brand’s newest under development, with two additional in-development properties in Miami, and further hotels underway in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle and Washington, DC. citizenM has three U.S. hotels open in New York City and Boston. With this hotel, the brand continues to build on its growth strategy, which by 2020 will reach 40 properties either open or in development globally, more than doubling its current portfolio.
The 27-acre mixed-use development, now delivering in phases, will feature a mix of residential, commercial and hospitality uses complemented by a total of 300,000 sq. ft. of retail, restaurant and entertainment space. The project’s first phase includes the recently completed Paramount Miami Worldcenter luxury condominium; the 444-unit Caoba apartment tower, which opened earlier this year; and the 434-unit Luma rental tower now underway. In addition, Hines is preparing to build a new tower that will comprise up to 500,000 sq. ft. of Class-A office space. MDM Group is planning a convention hotel with 600,000 sq. ft. of exhibition space.
