Miami-based Key International broke ground for construction of an AC Hotel by Marriott near the beach in Fort Lauderdale.

Key International is building the 10-story, 171-room hotel on a site at 3029 Alhambra Street on Fort Lauderdale’s barrier island.

The Miami-based firm acquired the development site as a three-parcel assemblage for $9.56 million in July 2016.

Amenities at the AC Hotel by Marriott will include a cocktail lounge and a resort-style swimming pool with cabanas and dining service.

Key International acquired the half-acre development site about eight months after Fort Lauderdale city commissioners approved a site plan for the hotel development in November 2015.

South Carolina-based OTO Development had a contract to purchase the Alhambra Street site but decided against closing the deal.

Key International’s portfolio of hotels and resorts includes the Eden Roc Resort in Miami Beach, a newly opened  Embassy Suites by Hilton in St. Augustine and the dual-brand Residence Inn and Springhill Suites in Clearwater. [Hospitality.net]Mike Seemuth
