New SLS Brickell Will House Michael Schwartz Restaurant, Katsuya, and the Bazaar by Jose Andres
|The Bazaar by Jose Andres is coming to Brickell.|
The high-rise hotel will be located at 1300 S. Miami Ave. in what a sales brochure calls the "new Brickell."
The $300 million building, designed by Arquitectonica and with interiors by Philippe Starck, will consist of a 130-room hotel and 39 floors of residences. Prices for the units are expected to start at $420 per square foot for lower floors and $500 per square foot for midlevel floors.
Though there aren't many details, amenities include a movie theater, conference facilities, a 200-foot pool, a private rooftop pool for residents, and a spa.
|Plans for SLS Brickell include several restaurants.|
The opening of the SLS Brickell might also be a catalyst for more restaurants and shops to open in the area. According to the South Florida Business Journal, developer Jorge Pérez wants the City of Miami to close off parts of South Miami Avenue to traffic and turn it into a pedestrian mall, much like Lincoln Road in Miami Beach.
The South Florida Business Journal reports that Pérez is talking with the city about doing a test program that would close Miami Avenue from Eighth Street to 13th Street on the weekends. Architecture firm Arquitectonica is being asked to give a concept on how the street closure might affect traffic.
