A Kuwaiti company has reportedly submitted development plans to build a Yotel Hotel in downtown Miami.

AQARAT, along with its Miami-based partner Aria Development Group, announced its plans to develop the hotel late last year. It was to include 250 “cabins” — smaller, minimalist hotel rooms — along with an unknown number of condos on the upper floors and commercial space for restaurants and retail.

Their plans have apparently grown, as documents submitted to the city show a 45-story tower with 263 cabins, according to the Next Miami. Rooms will start at 213 square feet.

Details about the project’s amenities decks have also been revealed: the 11th, 12th and 45th floors will be dedicated to amenities that include restaurants, bars, a pool and gym. The expected opening date was pushed back from 2017 to 2018.

Plans also include 144 parking spaces on the lower levels — 22 percent fewer than what is required by zoning, the Next Miami reports — along with retail and restaurant space. All of this would be built on the lot at 235 Northeast 2nd Avenue, which is a third of an acre.

The architect for Miami’s Yotel is ADD Inc., now with Stantec. Plans will go before Miami’s Urban Development Review Board next week. [The Next Miami] — Sean Stewart-Muniz
