MIAMI—The Related Group, a developer of luxury condominiums and mixed-use developments, and sbe, a hospitality, lifestyle, and real estate company, announced that SLS Brickell, the first SLS Hotel & Residences, will debut in Miami’s international business district in 2015.
SLS Brickell is slated to break ground mid-2013. The property will feature 133 SLS hotel rooms and suites, 450 SLS branded condo residences, and a collection of sbe’s retail, spa, and food and beverage concepts. The joint venture will own and operate the hotel and restaurants.
“Jorge Perez has an impeccable reputation as Florida’s best residential and mixed-use developer. We hope this is the beginning of many ventures together,” said Sam Nazarian, founder, chairman, and chairman of sbe. “The addition of SLS branded residences to the sbe Collection is an initiative we’ve been developing since we first launched the SLS Hotels brand, and partnering with The Related Group gives us a tremendous market advantage.”
SLS Brickell will showcase the design of Philippe Starck. Much like his approach to SLS properties in Beverly Hills, South Beach, Las Vegas and New York, Starck will develop a signature aesthetic for SLS Brickell hotel and restaurants, embracing city-scape living and playing.
Internationally renowned chef and SLS Hotels Culinary Director José Andrés will add his signature dining destinations to this new property. Overseeing the food and beverage offerings for SLS Brickell, Andrés welcomes the addition of a restaurant with Miami-based James Beard Award-winning chef Michael Schwartz with whom the company recently partnered in its acquisition of South Beach’s Raleigh Hotel. Once complete, SLS Brickell will house over 20,000 square feet of food and beverage outlets, spanning multiple restaurants, lounges, and pool bars.
As a sister property to the nearby SLS Hotel South Beach, SLS Brickell will feature over 15,000 square feet of meeting space, a full-service spa, as well as two pools reserved for both hotel guests and residence owners. Benefits offered to SLS residents include 24-hour concierge services, valet parking, private beach access, as well as such optional services as housekeeping, personal training, catered meeting space and events, transportation, laundry, dry cleaning and personal shopping. Owners will receive exclusive access to the sbe collection, including enrollment in the SLS Founders Program, and custom experiences and special benefits at SLS and sbe properties nationwide.
