Stantec has been chosen for the architecture and interior design of the first YotelPad Condo on the East Coast in Downtown Miami. YotelPad Miami, an evolution from hotel to condo, will feature innovative, efficient spaces for hotel guests and condo owners. The project will include 208 residential units and 250 hotel rooms.
The first YotelPad condo on the East Coast will be part of the Yotel hotel project planned in downtown Miami.
This is the latest change to the 45-story project that has been in the works at 227 N.E. 2nd St. It will now have 208 residential units, ranging from 425-square-foot studios to 700-square-foot units with two bedrooms. Prices will start in the $250,000 range. Since they are a “micro unit” size, the floor plans will integrate the living, kitchen and dining areas into a single room to maximize space. Each unit will also have a dedicated storage space.
The project will also have 250 hotel rooms on the floor below the condos. There would be no on-site parking, so residents could use nearby garages.
The Yotel project is led by Aria Development Group and AQARAT, a Kuwaiti real estate company.
“Downtown Miami is emerging as a high-energy place to live, shop and work,” said David Arditi, principal of Aria Development Group. “With YotelPad Miami, we are meeting the strong demand for service-oriented, urban-chic apartments. In addition, owners have the unique opportunity to participate in a short-term rental program. Together with the Yotel brand, we are delivering a thoughtful, value-luxury experience in a dynamic location.”
Condo owners will have access to the hotel’s common areas and amenities, such as a coffee bar, a restaurant and bar, a fitness center, co-working space, a pool deck and a pet spa. The residents will also have an exclusive sky lounge with a game room, luxury living room and a chef’s kitchen.
Stantec is the architect of the project and the condo sales will be handled by One World Properties. The developers hope to compete the project in 2020.
