Developer Wexford, which built the recently-opened University of Miami
Life Science and Technology Park in downtown Miami, has won approval
from the Miami-Dade County Commission to build a hotel near the
University of Miami’s medical school campus. The hotel would have 225
rooms and 18 stories, along with a 184,000-square-foot conference
center. The hotel was among the potential developments predicted last
year by Bill
Hunter
, leasing manager for Wexford at the UMLSTP in the burgeoning
Health District. The commission has approved a $90 million bond for the
hotel project. [SFBJ]
