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.


The nine-story, 192,514-square-foot hotel will be the second AC Hotel in South Florida. It’s set to open in January 2016, according to Norwich’s website. Zyscovich Architects will design the property. Amenities will include a bar, gym, pool, amenities deck, a breakfast room with a catering kitchen and two levels of integrated parking.

Wells Fargo was the lender. Norwich Aventura II paid $9.36 million in December for the 1.8-acre site on the southeast corner of that block. Norwich, a hotel development and investment company, has an agreement with ACC/GP Investment, which owns the remaining properties on that block.

Norwich Partners, which is based in Lebanon, New Hampshire and Sanibel, Fla., is also developing an Aloft Hotel in Aventura. Norwich Partners did not immediately respond to calls for comment.

Also nearby is the planned Aventura ParkSquare, an 8.5-acre mixed-use project developed by Integra Investments. It’s slated for completion in early 2017.
