Chilean hospitality company Atton Hotels is reportedly set to open its first U.S. property by June 2016 in Miami's Brickell neighborhood.
The company's CEO Francisco Levine told the South Florida Business Journal that the $65-million project has grown in scope since it broke ground in May 2014. Instead of the originally planned 275 rooms, the property will open with 298 rooms.
Atton Hotels is actively seeking more sites in Miami, Levine added. The company is prepared to acquire existing hotels or vacant sites for new construction. He did not confirm a timeline for when those sites would be secured.
Fort Lauderdale's Moss & Associates is the general contractor for the project and Miami-based Revuelta Architecture designed the Miami resort. Once open, it will be Atton Hotels' seventh property since the company was founded in 2000. The firm has three other hotels in development. Outside of Miami, Atton Hotels' portfolio includes properties in Santiago, Chile; Bogota, Colombia and Lima, Peru. The company aims to open 20 hotels by 2020.
