Jason Halpern announced that his real estate development company, JMH Development, was part of the project that would top off the Aloft South Beach Hotel. The Miami Beach-based hotel with 235 rooms was scheduled to open in 2015.
The project would see the partnership between JMH Development and the Madden Real Estate Ventures. It will involve the addition of an eight-story tower to the famous Motel Ankara. The lead architect of the project is ADD, Inc. and Plaza Construction has been contracted to build the hotel. This is a significant venture because the Aloft South Beach hotel will become the first newly built one in the entire area since 2009.
Features of the New Hotel
The Aloft South Beach hotel rooms will average at least 360 square feet each and will be the largest in South Beach offering guests enough space to relax and enjoy their vacation. Also, the hotel’s prime waterfront location will give guests a breathtaking access to not only the Pancoast Lake but also the Collins Canal that surrounds the entire property.
The Aloft South Beach’s location is only one block from the Miami Beach. Guests will have close access to the beach at all times. Since it is located in central South Beach, the hotel will only be minutes from boutiques, restaurants, nightclubs, top art galleries in the vicinity, the famous Bass Museum of Art, and the modern Miami Beach Convention Center.
Apart from its excellent location, guests will be treated to a host of other exciting features including a 24/7 fitness center, roof deck lounge, and an outdoor pool. Furthermore, they will have access to a vast, flexible meeting space that can be used for social gatherings as well as business meetings. For entertainment, guests will have free access to live professional bands and emerging artists playing at W XYZ bars as part of the Aloft Hotels programming.
Aloft Hotels boast of over 100 hotels presently in operation and several others under way. The Hotels are under the Starwood Aloft brand and are looking to expand to 14 countries globally. The brand offers travelers a vibrant and tech-forward experience in its modern style hotels. Additionally, Starwood has the richest loyalty program in the industry called the Starwood Preferred Guest (R).
