A group led by developers Jackie Soffer of Turnberry Associates and David Martin of Terra is the sole bidder to submit a proposal for a Miami Beach Convention Center hotel.

Miami Beach Connect, which includes Bernardo Fort-Brescia’s Arquitectonica, Craig Robins’ Dacra, Meyer-Davis and Coastal Tishman, will go before the city’s evaluation committee meeting next Thursday, a spokesperson for the team confirmed.

The $600 million-plus renovation and expansion of the Miami Beach Convention Center is expected to be completed later this year.

The hotel RFP was issued more than two years after Miami Beach voters rejected a previously proposed 288-foot, 800-room hotel by Atlanta-based Portman Holdings. The privately financed development requires 60 percent approval from voters. Portman received only 54 percent approval.

The hotel would be built on the same site, behind the Fillmore at the Jackie Gleason Theater, which would not be redeveloped. Under the new request for proposals, the hotel would be a third smaller than the previous design. It would be no taller than 185 feet and would have between 550 and 800 rooms.

As part of Miami Beach Connect — which is not affiliated with Turnberry or Terra — ArquitectonicaGEO would handle landscape design, Rockwell Davis would design the interiors and Meyer Davis would design the restaurant.

Both Soffer and Martin have business in Miami Beach. Turnbery owns the Fontainebleau Hotel, a 1,594-room resort at 4441 Collins Avenue, and Terra is building Eighty Seven Park, a 70-unit, 20-story luxury condominium tower at 8701 Collins Avenue.
