Swire selects East affiliate for CityCentre hotel

Jun.June 04, 2013 01:00 PM

Swire Properties elected its East affiliate among several interested hotel brands to design the hotel portion of its massive multi-use City Center development, the Miami Herald reported.

The 236-room East Miami will be the brand’s first in the United States, with two other hotels in Hong Kong and Beijing. The building will also offer 89 apartments with hotel services, two restaurants, a meeting room and a rooftop bar, according to the Herald.

East Miami will price lower than the Mandarin Oriental, which Swire developed and has a stake in, Swire Properties President Stephen Owens told the Herald.

“It has a sort of dynamic energy that we thought would really complement what we’re doing at Brickell CityCentre,” he said.

Construction on the $1.05 billion development west of Brickell Avenue and south of the Miami River is set to begin in September, with the hotel set to be finished by the third quarter of 2015, the Herald said. [Miami Herald]Emily Schmall
