CLIENT NEWS: Design Refinements Submitted For 800-Room Grand Hyatt Miami Beach

March 29, 2024

Developers planning the Grand Hyatt Convention Center hotel in Miami Beach have submitted design refinements to a city board for review.

The Miami Beach Design Review Board had requested the changes at a previous meeting, and also requested that the updated designs be submitted for review once they had been made.

The developer is additionally requesting the board approve a variance to allow the building to encroach into a ten-foot ground-level setback required by city code.

A meeting of the Design Review Board with the Grand Hyatt modifications on the agenda is scheduled for April 2. To see the full set of revisions, click here.

The hotel is set to become one of the largest built in Miami’s history.

As of November, early utility work was 95% complete, including work that required closing city streets and the adjacent Jackie Gleason Theater. The developer was said to have already spent $20m on the project.

The Grand Hyatt is expected to cost around $600m to develop, and include:

  • 800 rooms (including 48 suites)
  • amenities including a gym, two pools, and a resort style pool deck
  • 90,000 square feet of indoor meeting/conference space, plus 10,000 square feet outdoors
  • 5 food and beverage outlets, including a signature restaurant that is already leased
  • A Grand Hyatt club lounge
  • 320 parking spaces

David Martin of Terra Group and Jackie Soffer of Turnberry are the developers. Bernardo Fort-Brescia’s Arquitectonica is the architect.
