Developers broke ground this week for the second Element hotel in Miami-Dade.
The Element Miami Doral will be located next to the Aloft Miami Doral, 3265 NW 107th Ave. Both Doral hotels are part of a development owned by Eurocon, LLC.
Aloft Miami Doral opened a year ago; the 140-room Element is scheduled to follow in July of 2015. Groundbreaking ceremonies were held Tuesday afternoon.
The Doral location is expected to be the 14th in the U.S. Element Miami International Airport opened about two years ago.
Element, an extended stay brand from Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, requires all properties to pursue LEED certification for high-performance buildings. The hotel offers studios and one-bedroom suites with kitchens, a 24-hour gym, bikes for guests to borrow and free Wi-Fi.
