Netherlands-based citizenM hotels is developing a 348-key hotel within Miami Worldcenter, one of the largest private mixed-use developments underway in the United States, occupying 27 acres in downtown Miami. CitizenM acquired the land for the development for $10.75 million.

The 12-story hotel, which will comprise 128,000-square-feet along NE 2nd Avenue between 7th and 8th streets, will include a 10th-floor sun deck with a swimming pool and rooftop bar, along with a fitness center and gym on the 11th floor. It will be located adjacent to Miami Worldcenter’s open-air shopping promenade, which will be lined with retail, restaurants and entertainment options.

The hotel also will include 1,850 square feet for societyM, the brand’s creative spaces and meeting rooms, and a cloudM rooftop bar offering views of Biscayne Bay and the downtown Miami skyline. Gensler Architects will be responsible for the hotel’s design.

Hotel Optimization Part 3 | January 27, 2021

With 2020 behind us and widespread vaccine distribution on the horizon, the second half of the new year is looking up, but for Q1 (and most likely well into Q2) we’re very much still in the thick of what has undeniably been the lowest point of the pandemic. What can you be doing now to power through and set yourself up for a prosperous 2021 and beyond? Join us at Part 3 of Hotel Optimization – A Virtual Event on January 27 from 10am – 1:05pm ET for expert panels focused on getting you back to profitability.


"CitizenM's rollout strategy has always centered around following our guests—a group of modern travelers who frequent true live/work/play destinations within the world's gateway cities," Ernest Lee, managing director, development and investment for citizenM U.S., said in a statement. "We are very excited to join the Miami Worldcenter development, a transformative project that will offer a high-quality mix of workplace, residential, dining, nightlife, shopping, conference and transit outlets."  

Spanning 10 city blocks, Miami Worldcenter is a $2 billion mixed-use development. Construction on the first phase of the project, which includes the 60-story Paramount luxury condominium, the 444-unit CAOBA Class A apartment tower and high-street retail, is now underway and slated for completion later this year.
