Dream Hotel Group has announced plans to open a 165-room, 10-story hotel as part of a hospitality-driven entertainment complex situated along the Miami River in Downtown Miami, Florida. Scheduled to open in 2025, Dream Miami will be the hospitality and entertainment centerpiece of Riverside Wharf, a 200,000-square-foot, dual-tower development. The project is being led by Miami-based developer MV Real Estate Holdings in conjunction with Driftwood Capital and designed by Jon Cardello of Miami-based CUBE3 architects with landscape design by Savino-Miller Design Studios.
Riverside Wharf reinterprets the Miami River into a vertical composition of flowing concrete forms that are carved by the river’s natural paths and movement of its water. Visitors traverse up through the levels providing unique vantage points of both Downtown Miami and the River, drawing the urban entertainment out to the river’s edge, and enriching the public riverwalk. Along the street edge, a Corten steel façade and other curated materials are detailed throughout the building, paying homage to the working river’s history of rustic fishing vessels and lobster cages. The architecture is designed to engulf patrons in a unique experience that brings new life to the river.
