A New 150-ROOM HOTEL is planned to SOUTH BEACH
A brand new hotel is coming to South Beach, this time at the former Citibank branch, which has already been demolished. The Thompson South Beach hotel will accommodate 150 rooms, with a ground-floor restaurant, as well as a rooftop restaurant and bar next to a pool.
Also, on the ground floor will be a replacement to the Citibank branch, the former one was on the site since 1996. Last month a demolition permit was applied, according to city records, but no construction permits have been filed yet. The proposal was examined by the Miami Beach Planning Board last year.
Rudy Ricciotti, a French architect, is designing the eight-story hotel with an undulant exterior to harmonizes with Frank Gehry’s SoundScape Park across the street.
