Urbanica hotels are popping up here, there and everywhere across Miami Beach.
Urbanica The Hotels developers Diego Colmenero and Charlie Porchetto, creators of The Meridian Hotel in Miami Beach, have three more properties in the works for Miami, all slated to open by 2020, effectively creating its own hospitality district in South Beach. The Kaskades Hotel at 300 17th Street opened in April and is managed by Urbanica as an independent operation, though it’s similar in design to The Meridian Hotel. The Euclid Hotel, located at 426 Euclid Avenue, is currently under construction and slated to open this summer with 30 guestrooms and Orilla, the sister restaurant to their first outpost in Argentina. The Fifth, at 803 Fifth Street, is set for 2020, with 50 guestrooms, on-site parking and a quaint restaurant. And the company’s expansion plans in Miami don’t stop there: The Biscayne, at 3200 Biscayne Boulevard in the burgeoning Edgewater area, is also scheduled to open late next year, with 210 guestrooms, approximately 5,000 square feet of retail space on the ground floor, a 7,000-square-foot rooftop pool, a bar and entertainment space. “We wanted to offer something new to this area as we felt Edgewater lacked luxury hotels to complement its upscale community filled with high- rise condominiums and notable restaurants,” say the hoteliers. “We see Miami as the world’s next great metropolis, and our goal is to enrich the lives of both visitors and locals. We have been visiting since our childhoods and are drawn to city’s multicultural energy, scenic vistas and cool vibe. Our goal is to create warm, friendly and attentive environments in Miami’s hippest neighborhoods, where our guests feel immediately at home.” For more information, visit urbanicahotels.com.
