The first Aman-branded Hotel and Residence project in South Florida is officially taking a step forward. The highly anticipated Aman Hotel and Residences got the approval from the Miami Beach Historic Preservation Board. This means that the project can now begin to take the next steps. Therefore, developer OKO Group can now begin getting permits for the project at 3425 Collins Ave.
Aman Hotel and Residences is to consist of 56 hotel rooms and 23 condo units. Both the hotel and the residences will be 16 stories high. The hotel will be in the restored Versailles Hotel, and the residences in a new tower next door. The hotel component won the board’s approval last month, and the condominium building last week.
Japanese architect Kengo Kuma is to design the condominium development. Other works by the architect include the New National Stadium in Tokyo for the 2020 Summer Olympics.
In a statement following the vote, OKO Group said that the team is focused on the renovation of the historic Versailles hotel, and the development of the Aman residential tower. The developers believe that the Aman Hotel and Residences will “strengthen Miami Beach’s appeal as one of the world’s most desirable places to live and visit.”
