Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group has signed a new Radisson Red in Miami Airport. Expected to break ground this fall at 3450 N.W. 25th St., the hotel is scheduled to open in 2018. The hotel is being developed by Miami based Riviera Point Development Group and will be managed by Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group.
According to the company, the hotel’s design will build flow between spaces, breaking down walls traditional hotels use to separate areas such as the lobby, restaurants, bars and meeting spaces; the design of the hotel will endeavor to marry these traditional spaces into one integrated, flowing social hive. The Radisson Red stay experience is complemented by an app that, in addition to providing keyless entry to rooms, allows guests the ability to order food and services as well as stream wirelessly from their device to the television.
Radisson Red Miami Airport will offer 155 guestrooms, as well as the brand’s signature food and beverage outlet, OUIbar + KTCHN. There will also be a pool and fitness center on site as well as multipurpose event studios.
“We are focused on job creation and satisfying market needs,” said Rodrigo Azpurua, CEO of Riviera Point Development Group. “The Miami International Airport supports strong occupancy and Radisson Red is an innovative brand that will provide a truly unique stay experience, like no other hotel in the area.”
The hotel project will be funded through the federal EB-5 Immigrant Investor program and developer equity.
Miami tourism improves due to EB-5 visa program. Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group is using the EB-5 visa to fund the development of a new hotel which has the potential to attract tourists.
Radisson Red Miami Airport is the third U.S. location the brand has announced, following Radisson Red Minneapolis Downtown, which will open in late 2016, and Radisson Red Portland, which will open in 2018. The brand currently has 16 hotels in development across the globe. Carlson Rezidor plans to open 60 Radisson Red hotels globally by 2020.
