Team spirit: Miami’s SLS Hotel & Residences Brickell prepares to open its doors
The Related Group, designer Philippe Starck and lifestyle hotel company SBE have teamed up on an impressive new project that will open its doors in the heart of Miami’s Brickell district. This is not only the team’s first collaboration, but also SBE’s second SLS Miami Hotel. One that includes a rich selection of private homes and gives the program its name – SLS Hotel & Residences.
The complex designed by Arquitectonica consists of a 55-storey tower and a podium, in which there are 124 hotel rooms designed by Starck and 450 residential units from the SLS brand. The modern architecture is characterized by a healthy dose of contemporary art, such as a mural by Markus Linnenbrink and a striking lobby sculpture by Bernardí Roig.
‘SLS Brickell embodies what we stand for; An uncompromising yet modern approach to luxury that is characterized by playfulness, spirit, creativity and first-class cuisine and design, ”says Sam Nazarian, CEO and founder of SBE.
Culinary delicacies are combined with 24-hour amenities for residents, such as concierge service, valet parking, in-room dining, babysitting service and a BMW 7 Eries house car. An on-site fitness center and spa complete the wellness facilities. The hotel, on the other hand, offers guests an urban oasis with access to pools and outdoor restaurants on the pool deck as well as fascinating Starck interiors.
“The SLS Hotel & Residences Brickell is conceived as a sophisticated and contemporary urban paradise and is playing a critical role in transforming Miami’s financial district with tremendous culture and hospitality,” said Jorge Pérez, founder of the Related Group. “I am extremely pleased with our first SLS branded residences and am excited to see our partnership with SBE growing with upcoming ventures including SLS LUX Puerto Madero in my hometown of Buenos Aires.”
The program will be unveiled to the public for the first time on October 3rd, but this, as Perez suggests, does not mark the end of the road for this talented team. Further joint ventures are pending. A sister property of SLS Hotel & Residences – SLS LUX Brickell – will be the next stop in their growing portfolio.
