A 16-room boutique hotel has been approved by the City of Miami Beach’s Design Review Board and Planning Board to rise at 7128 Indian Creek Drive in North Beach.
The hotel will be developed by IC Property Capital Corp and includes underground parking and a rooftop pool deck. The architect is Miami Beach-based Laure Tirouflet and Jose Carlo.
It will be built “with future street raising in mind,” per the press release. The design features a graphic mosaic pattern on the front façade masking the garage and architectural treatments running along the spine of the elevator shaft.
“This is the type of beautifully designed, boutique hotel that people have been waiting to see in North Beach and dovetails nicely with the community’s Master Plan vision for this area,” said Greenberg Traurig Miami Real Estate Shareholder Ethan B. Wasserman, who represented IC Capital before the board. “Its location is ideal: in the Town Corridor just north of 71st Street and within walking distance of the ocean and park, as well as the local commercial sector that includes restaurants and other venues.”
The Master Plan Wasserman is referring to faces a key vote on the upcoming ballot. Miami Beach voters will be asked whether they want to approve Item #82, which would allow North Beach to move forward on the key facet of a master plan for revitalizing a 10-block district along 71st Street between Collins Avenue and Indian Creek Drive.
