Developers are breaking ground for the Atton Brickell Hotel on Friday.
The 275-room hotel at 1500 SW First Ave. in the Brickell area is expected to open in early 2016. It will be the first property in the United States for Chile-based Atton Hotels.
A $65 million project, the hotel will include a restaurant, meeting space and pool bar.
“Miami outperforms most other U.S. markets in visitors and is considered the capital of Latin America, where we already have strong brand recognition and a large client base,” Atton Hotels CEO Francisco Levine said in a statement. “Opening a flagship hotel in Miami is a natural move and we expect Atton Brickell Hotel to attract business travelers who want an economical, full-service experience with Latin American flavor.”
The hotel company has three properties in Chile and one in Peru.
Revuelta Architecture in Miami is designing the project and Seifert Murphy, a Dallas firm, is handling interior design.
