Ground has broken on a new citizenM[2] luxury hotel at the Miami Worldcenter[3] in South Florida. The $4 billion mixed-use development is creating a ‘city within a city’ in the heart of downtown Miami.

The 12-story, 351-room hotel is designed by the Amsterdam-based firm Concrete[4], in conjunction with Gensler[5]. The general contractor (GC) is Suffolk Construction[6].

Located across the street from transit services, and adjacent to Miami Worldcenter’s pedestrian-only, open-air shopping promenade, the 11,892-m2 (128,000-sf) property’s deign includes a 10th-floor sundeck and a rooftop bar offering views of Biscayne Bay and the downtown Miami skyline, as well as 171 m2 (1850 sf) 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 contemporary art, photography, and objects by local artists.

The 11-ha (27-acre) mixed-use development, now being delivered in phases, will feature a mix of residential, commercial, and hospitality uses with a total of 27,871 m2 (300,000 sf) 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, and the 434-unit Luma rental tower now underway. Additionally, Hines is preparing to build a new tower comprising up to 46,452 m2 (500,000 sf) of Class-A office space and MDM Group is planning a convention hotel with 55,742 m2 (600,000 sf) of exhibition space.
