Major hospitality firm Choice Hotels International confirmed that it plans to build a Cambria Suites on the Brickell-area site it purchased last week.

Choice announced its plans for three properties at 145, 155 and 165 Southwest 12th Street in a written statement released on Monday. Cambria Suites is one of the publicly traded hospitality holding company’s numerous brands. Choice paid $9.5 million for the site, as previously reported by The Real Deal.

Three small apartment buildings on the site are expected to be knocked down to make way for the new Cambria Suites. Choice already operates the six-story, 122-room Cambria Suites Miami Airport Blue Lagoon in the city, according to the South Florida Business Journal.

“We are excited to bring a new Cambria Hotels & Suites property to the Brickell neighborhood and expand the brand’s presence in Miami,” Choice senior vice president Michael Murphy said. [SFBJ]Eric Kalis
