The majority of the Miami area’s most anticipated hotels are in Miami Beach, according to Curbed.
Top of the list of seven is the Faena Hotel, the Roman & Williams renovation of the historic Saxony Hotel, and the centerpiece of the eponymous complex of Argentine developer Alan Faena. Rem Koolhaas and Sir Norman Foster designed their own pieces of the Faena District, including cultural space and condos.
L.A. transplants The Redbury on South Beach, which ranks at number two, and SLS’s second Miami outpost, SLS Brickell, ranked six, are among those Curbed considers awaiting with bated breath.
Number three is the Marriott Edition, the renovation of the historic Seville Hotel in Miami Beach. Ian Schrager’s Residences at the Edition sold a record-busting $34 million triplex penthouse last spring to Ajit Khubani, the creator of the “As Seen on TV” infomercials.
Rounding out the list is the Lennox Hotel, a renovation of the historic Peter Miller Hotel by Kobi Karp, who is also working down the block on renovating the landmark art deco Versailles Hotel at 34th and Collins Ave. [Curbed] –Emily Schmall
