Miami Beach convention center hotel is redesigned; review is coming next
A new design for the Miami Beach Convention Center hotel has been modified and resubmitted for review. The new renderings show significant engineering modifications, including a design with less glass.
The project will be built in place of the current surface parking lot next to the Convention Center. A one-story office building and the one-story and two-story sections of the back of the Fillmore Miami Beach, in the Jackie Gleason Theater building, will also be demolished.
The plans kept the same number of hotel rooms: 800, plus 320 parking spaces. The tower itself remains the same, with 17 floors, but instead of 190 feet, now is 185 feet.
Arquitectonica is the architect of the project; construction is expected to begin early next year with work on the site underway this year. The Miami Beach Design Review Board is scheduled to review the plans on June 4th.
