A previously unnamed, five-story hotel under construction in Coconut Grove will be operated by the Cipriani family’s boutique Mr. C brand.
Under construction since last year, the project is being developed by the Fort family and Arquitectonica founding principal Bernardo Fort-Brescia. It is located on a narrow lot next to the group’s renovation of the historic Engle Building at the southeast corner of McFarlane Road and Main Highway.
The Ciprianis currently operate a Mr. C Hotel in Beverly Hills and opened a second location, Mr. C Seaport, in New York. The family is also behind Miami’s Cipriani Downtown restaurant, according to the The Real Deal.
The Coconut Grove design features 98 guest rooms and a striking porthole design supported by V-shaped pillars. Additional photos of the upcoming hospitality project can be found at Golden Dust Photography.
