A gas leak at an Edgewater construction site shut down a portion of Biscayne Boulevard on Monday afternoon.

The leak occurred at 3400 Biscayne Boulevard in Miami, according to city of Miami Fire Rescue Captain Ignatius Carroll. It’s the site of the AC Hotel by Marriott, which is nearly completed.

Carroll said the leak had been mitigated and Teco Peoples Gas was on the scene. The southbound lanes of Biscayne Boulevard were temporarily closed between Northwest 33rd and 36th streets.

3H Group, the developer behind the 153-room hotel, closed on a $21.3 million construction loan for the project in April 2018. Hemant Patel’s Arti Hersi Inc. also owns a stake in the project.

Kobi Karp designed the seven-story hotel, which will feature a restaurant and bar, a rooftop pool, fitness center and meeting rooms. It will also share a 217-space parking garage with the adjacent Hampton Inn & Suites Miami Midtown.

Midtown Lodging 2 LLC paid $1.25 million for the former Midtown Inn Miami site in 2018, and knocked down the building shortly thereafter. The property is a few blocks away from the Shops at Midtown Miami and the Miami Design District.

In July, a gas explosion at a Plantation shopping center injured nearly two dozen people. Portions of the shopping center, owned by Edens, are expected to be demolished now that the building is structurally unsound, the city’s fire chief previously said.
