New renderings for Jungle Island hotel

After receiving voter approval, ESJ Capital Partners released a slew of renderings for its proposed Jungle Island hotel.

The vote allowed the Aventura-based developer to extend its lease to 39 years, plus a 15-year option, for the planned 300-room hotel. ESJ recently submitted plans to the city of Miami for construction of the project.

ESJ closed on the initial $60 million lease transfer of the 18-acre Watson Island theme park in April 2017. The property, which closed due to damage caused by Hurricane Irma last year, has been reopening in phases.

New attractions include a newly installed vertical wind tunnel, a Nerf foam dart challenge course and two escape rooms featuring Jungle Island themes.
