MDM Group announced yesterday it has a contract to build a tower with a 500,000-square-foot convention space below a 1,800-room hotel to be managed by Marriott, the Miami Herald reported.

The site at 700 North Miami Avenue is currently Grand Central Park and under the control of MDM Group, which intends to privately finance the project. Coral Gables-based Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates is designing the tower, the Herald said. Marriott at Miami Worldcenter will be connected to the next-door All Aboard Florida train station by a skybridge. MDM and Miami World Center principals have declined to provide the project’s estimated cost, the newspaper said.

As previously reported, Marriott won a case against the owners of Eden Roc Renaissance Miami Beach late last year. Eden Roc had accused Marriott of mismanaging a Renaissance Hotel Management unit. Marriott subsequently sued Eden Roc, claiming they were attempting a hostile takeover of the hotel. [Miami Herald]Mark Maurer
