Move over Edgewater condos, here come the hotels

Move over Edgewater condos, here come the hotels

Feb 22, 2017 February 22, 2017

A previous blog on how a petition to privatize an alley adjacent to Cité Condo sparked rumors of a new hotel coming to Edgewater did spark another thought process. It seems the latest trend for developments in Edgewater is to either be a hotel or have a hotel component.

This definitely spices things up for the neighborhood, which has been lacking the hotel component thus far. Here’s looking at the new Edgewater hotel projects that will soon be making their debut:

Best Western International’s boutique hotel VIB

Best Western’s debut in the boutique hotel market also marks its debut in Edgewater, Miami. On the southern edge of Edgewater, this 10-story hotel will be within walking distance for Opera Tower, Aria on the Bay, 1800 Club, Quantum on the Bay, Cité and 1800 Biscayne Plaza residents.

Developed by Rebuild Miami-Edgewater LLC, Vib will also be following the micro-unit trend with smaller rooms featuring bare necessities and extensive common areas catering to business and leisure travelers. Click for more VIB details.

The Bentley Hotel and Residences

Developed by the Heafey Group, this condo hotel project will bring the Autograph Collection by Marriott to Edgewater. The Bentley Hotel and Residences will feature 207 hotel and residential units designed by Kobi Karp architects. Expect al fresco dining, music lounge and coffee bar, signature restaurant, pet-friendly services and more.

On the northern edge of Edgewater, its neighbors include the Hampton Inn and Suites, Blue, Charter Club, Spark and Bay Park Towers. Residents of the Bentley can opt for the rental program and have VIP beach access at their sister hotel in South Beach.

Hampton Inn and Suites

The mid-range Hampton Inn and Suites are being co-developed by Miami’s Mayan Properties, 3H Group Hotels and Arti Hersi Inc. The 151-room hotel has been designed by Kobi Karp and is expected to join the Hilton Worldwide Portfolio of Brands.

Catering to business and leisure travelers, the hotel offers a 24-hour business center with complimentary printing service, two meeting rooms, an outdoor pool, fitness center and will showcase local art. Close to the northern border of Edgewater, residents from the close by Blue, Charter Club, Spark and Bay Park Towers can easily schedule meetings and visit guests staying at this sleek hotel.

The new hotel development trend has had a spillover effect, with new establishments coming to the hospitality parched areas surrounding Edgewater too. You can soon expect to see:

Hyde Midtown Suites and Residences

A sister property of the SLS Hotel South Beach, the Hyde Midtown Suites and Residences are being co-developed by The Related Group, Dezer Development and hotelier Sam Nazarian-run SBE. The hotel comes designed by Arquitectonica with interiors by David Rockwell.

Expect a Hyde music lounge and piano bar, VIP access to the Hyde Beach Club, signature restaurant, private screening theater, Bocce court, full-scale resort-style pool deck, permanent installation of museum quality artwork and private dog park at this 31 story tower. Of the 397 units at the Hyde, 60 will be exclusively hotel and the remaining either condos or condo hotel units. Residents of the nearby Blue, Charter Club, Spark, Bay Park Towers, Naranza, Midtown 2 and Midtown 4 condos will definitely have something new to look forward to.

Triptych Miami Design District

The upscale, multi-use Triptych Miami Design District is being co-developed by the HES Group and JQ in an attempt to tie together business, art and design. The 20-story luxury hotel will feature 296 rooms and suites, 40,000 square feet of business space and 38,000 square feet dedicated to retail. It will be part of the Curio Collection by Hilton.

Expect an extensive gallery space (open to both locals and visitors), 24/7 fitness center, Sky Lobby with pool deck and more at this ambitious multi-use development. Midtown 2 and Midtown 4 condo residents will surely appreciate the proximity to this stylish hotel.

These hotel additions are definitely sensible, as Edgewater is the connector to every destination neighborhood in town (Midtown, Design District, South Beach, Downtown Miami, Miami Beach, etc), and with these mid-range hotel options, tourists and business people alike will be certainly filling up these rooms.

Opinions and Advice Want to Live in a Penthouse? Here’s What You Need to Know
Penthouses are the pinnacle of condo living. Living in a penthouse means waking up to sweeping views and expansive living spaces that feel like a home in the sky. Add on luxury amenities and, well, now you’re getting the picture. While it might sound cliche and too good to be true, this is the reality of owning a penthouse. But what really is penthouse apartment or condo? And are they worth it? Read on for answers to all of these questions about penthouses. So what IS a penthouse? Penthouses are, historically, a separate build on the very top of an apartment block or hotel, fitted with the best interiors, and both indoor and outdoor space. The term came about in the 1920s when developers started transforming previously undesirable and often dirty “attic” space into incredible and spacious  properties on the top of their developments. Distinguished by their opulence, as well as their world-class views, they were immediately popular and became synonymous with status and wealth (read...
Anatomy of HOA Fees: Are Miami Condo Fees actually High?
Opinions and Advice Anatomy of HOA Fees: Are Miami Condo Fees actually High?
Condo living is often considered more convenient compared to single family houses. Someone else does almost all of your maintenance -- be it the yard, the roof, the pool, you name it. Plus, there’s typically always some kind of security/surveillance. Amenities like swimming pools, gyms and front desks staff are a standard. And, if you buy into a luxury condo, you can get access to full-service spas, wine cellars, golf simulators, lounges, or even art galleries are all part of what you can call home. And while some think there’s a price for these conveniences and little luxuries, the overall cost is about the same as living in a home. The only difference is when living in a condo, you pay one monthly fee for all this, and it’s called your HOA fees or condo fees. Especially in a city like Miami, condos pack in the entire gamut of resort-style amenities fit for a year-round staycation. Not to mention, there’s usually a team of starchitects and internationally renowned designers behind...
