Triptych, a mixed-use hotel development proposed for the northern border of Midtown, received unanimous approval from Miami’s Urban Development Review Board on Wednesday.

The developer, HES Group, is a firm that got its start redeveloping hotels in Venezuela and is now headquartered in Miami.

The group’s plans are for a 20-story building on the empty lot at 3601 North Miami Avenue, which saddles up to I-195’s Midtown exit. The building will house 297 hotel rooms, 21,441 square feet of commercial and retail space, and 65,494 square feet of office space.

The hotel section will have a yet unnamed “luxury brand.” HES Group has partnerships with Starwood Hotels & Resorts and the InterContinental Hotels Group, according to its website.

Plans also include a rooftop restaurant, roughly 6,000 square feet of space for art galleries, and a 368-stall parking garage with an automated parking system.

The team had requested three waivers for its project:

  • A reduction in the number of trees needed on the ground floor, which Triptych’s landscape artist said are compensated for on the building’s upper decks.
  • The number of doors necessary for each side of the building. The building’s side on Northeast Miami Court does not meet the requirement of having a door every 75 feet, though the developer argued that it isn’t a main traffic area.
  • Extending the maximum length of the building to 198 feet instead of 180 due to a sharp corner, which fits the building’s angular architecture.

Design review board members approved the project with one suggestion: to simplify the plans.

Also approved during Wednesday’s meeting was Goldman Properties’ garage in Wynwood, which would be the neighborhood’s tallest building to date.
