April 23 2017 | Hyatt may rebuild Miami hotel and convention centerMay 28, 2017
Hyatt Hotels Corp. and the Miami city government are discussing a deal to redevelop the company’s Hyatt Regency hotel in downtown Miami and the adjacent James L. Knight Center convention complex. The hotel and convention center opened on the north bank of the Miami River in 1982.
Terms of a potential redevelopment plan would give Hyatt 12 months to produce a master plan for construction of a new hotel with meeting space, plus a mixed-use project, at the 4.5-acre site of the hotel and convention center, 400 Southeast 2 Avenue. Hyatt might consider new uses for the site, including offices and residences.
The plan that Hyatt and the city are discussing would not entail replacement of any or all of the existing 36,000 square feet of meeting space at the Knight Center.
if Hyatt and the city commission agree on a redevelopment plan, the company would sign a new 99-year ground lease with the city, replacing an existing lease set to expire in six years. Upon expiration of the existing lease, Hyatt would have a 45-year renewal option.
