The Marriott-branded Courtyard Miami Downtown hotel could be replaced by an 82-story mixed-use tower.
The application by Miami Convention Hotel Corp., an affiliate of Yonkers, New York-based AVR Realty, will go before the city’s Urban Development Review Board on April 18. Called 2nd and 2nd, the project would go on the 1.15-acre site at 200 S.E. 2nd Ave.
The property currently has a 13-story, 231-room hotel that was built in 1975. It would be demolished.
In its place, AVR Realty wants to build a 1.53 million-square-foot tower that would rise 898 feet. It would feature 637 residential units, 266 hotel rooms, about 25,500 square feet of convention and meeting space within the hotel, 9,245 square feet of commercial/restaurant space, and 553 parking spaces.
The parking spaces would be on the first eight floors. The hotel amenity and pool deck would be on the ninth floor, with the hotel rooms on floors 10 through 17. Floors 18 and up would be for the residential uses, including amenity decks on floor 47 and floor 80.
The residential units would range from 787 to 1,818 square feet.
The project is designed by Coral Gables architects NBWW (Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe).
