Real estate companies Terra and Turnberry selected Hyatt Hotels Corp. to manage their planned Miami Beach, Fla., hotel under its Grand Hyatt brand. The Grand Hyatt Miami Beach, slated to open in 2023, will be located adjacent to the recently renovated Miami Beach Convention Center.

"Grand Hyatt Miami Beach makes it possible to better compete for citywide conventions, which fuel jobs in our community and generates business for all of Greater Miami's hotels and merchants,” William D. Talbert III, president of the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau, said in a statement.

The 800-room Grand Hyatt Miami Beach will include 12 floors of guestrooms, two floors of meeting spaces and ballrooms, a resort-style pool deck and street-level retail. An elevated skybridge will connect the hotel to the convention center. Plans also include landscaped pedestrian walkways, bike sharing stations, connectivity with public transit and dedicated ridesharing picking-up and drop-off zones.

David Martin of Terra and Jackie Soffer of Turnberry are leading the development of the hotel. Architect Bernardo Fort-Brescia and his firm Arquitectonica will lead its design. Other members of the team include Craig Robins of real estate development company Dacra; Stonehill Taylor, which will design the hotel’s interior lobby and lounges, ballroom and meeting rooms, guestrooms and common areas; architecture and interior design firm EoA Group; and Arquitectonica GEO.

"For years, Miami Beach has served as a global destination for arts, culture, shopping, dining and entertainment, but the city has lacked a true headquarters hotel for top-tier conventions and meetings," Martin and Soffer said in a statement. "South Florida's first Grand Hyatt hotel will maximize Miami Beach's investment in its re-imagined Convention Center while bridging the physical gap that exists between the Convention Center District and surrounding neighborhoods."
