Under the ownership of the alternative investment manager, CGI Merchant Group, the downtown property will take over the Casa Moderna Hotel on Biscayne Boulevard.
Located in the centre of the city’s cultural hotspots, the 129-room hotel will boast two rooftop pools and more than 400sqm of meeting, event and dining space. One of the property's signature food-and-beverage amenities will include the first ever STK Rebel, a casual version of the traditional steakhouse, which will include indoor and outdoor dining options.
"The opening of ME Miami represents a significant undertaking for CGI, one that spanned two years and comprised a substantial financial commitment, a tremendous amount of resources, as well as exhaustive due diligence to find a partner befitting of such a significant project for downtown Miami," said Raoul Thomas, CEO of CGI Merchant Group.
