New details have emerged regarding the 800-unit hotel being designed by Pritzker Prize winner Rem Koolhaas as part of South Beach ACE’s proposal for the $1 billion, 52-acre redevelopment of Miami Beach’s convention center, the group said in a release.

Under his firm OMA’s plan, all of the rooms will have private balconies, with curved design that references the Art Deco style of Miami Beach. The pool deck is oriented toward the east, with views toward the ocean and room for outdoor events, the release said. The hotel will sit at the center of site.

A penthouse lounge will rise 194 feet high above ground. The hotel, convention center, ballrooms and meeting rooms will all be integrated within the same building, to make it more convenient for hotel guests.
