Construction began recently on a Biscayne Boulevard Hampton Inn & Suites near Midtown Miami.
Miami-based Mayan Properties, 3H Group Hotels and Arti Hersi Inc. are partnering on the 151-room hotel, which is located at 3450 Biscayne Boulevard.
“We’re bullish on Midtown Miami and the Biscayne Boulevard corridor, which is seeing a tremendous level of residential development and commercial activity this cycle,” Mayan Properties principal Boaz Ashbel said in a statement. “The glaring void in the market is a mid-range hotel brand stylishly designed, which is where our Hampton Inn & Suites will meet demand from commercial and leisure visitors seeking a comfortable place to stay in a convenient location.”
Israel Bigelman is the project’s architect, Kobi Karp the building’s exterior architect and Monioni Design is the interior designer. The Comras Company is marketing the project’s 4,435-square-feet of retail and restaurants. Midtown Lodging bought the site for $4.5 million and was approved for an $18.3 million loan from Florida Community Bank in December.
The development is expected to open in the first quarter of 2016. — Katherine Kallergis
